Stag Roasters - Pichinaki - Decaf - Whole Bean 250g

 

Tasting Notes

Bold cocoa, almond flavours, with a liquorice body and medium acidity.

 

Roasters Thoughts

I sort far and wide to find a decaf that has those stronger bold flavours that almost mirrors that of its caffeinated counterpart. Full or warm flavours, hint of citrus and truly one for the decaf lover that wants something that is full of body and not a thin extract as found produced from other coffee houses.

 

Region

The region utlises two main varieties of coffee bean, Caturra and Pache, farmed and managed by the Asociación Central de Productores, in Peru. These bean varieties suit the higher altitudes and moderate climate to create a limited coffee bean supply across the three farms that make up this unique blend.  The beans are hand picked and organically produced between 1680 – 1775 MSAL.

 

Processing

Washed then Co2 process – As per the caffeinated Pichinaki blend, the beans are washed using natural spring water and then air dried in the sun. Once this process has been completed, they undergo the Carbon Dioxide caffeine extraction process. The beans are steamed, and then bathed in compressed CO2. The caffeine is then removed from the CO2 by charcoal filters. Utilising this process the beans retain their falvour during the whole process.

  • Stag Roasters the brain child of Simon was born in 2017

     

    Simple question first…

    WHY DID WE ESTABLISH A UK BASED ROASTERS?

     

    Our Founder, Simon, developed a passion for coffee after years of travel in an industry that took him all over the world. Some locations less desirable than others, but it opened his mind (and taste buds) to the opportunities in coffee.

     

    The reoccurring question:

    WHY ARE PEOPLE IN THE UK LIMITED TO HIGH-STREET AMERICAN COFFEE, OR SUPERMARKET BRANDS?

     

    It has become common knowledge that the main coffee regions in the world are Colombia, Costa Rica, Brazil and Kenya, but there are plenty of other regions where we can source quality coffee, from Vietnam to Thailand and further afield.

    Artisan coffee shops are opening all the time, allowing the public to taste different coffee flavours and roasts. Leading to the next question:

     

    WHY ARE WE PAYING HIGH-STREET PRICES FOR A CUP OF COFFEE, WHEN THE FARMERS AND CUSTOMERS DON’T SEE THE VALUE?

     

    Simon’s journey started with sourcing his own green beans. Sounds easy, but what about the roasting part once you get them home? Our home roasting guide is one of many ways you can try it for yourself.

    Once he had understood how cost effective it was to enjoy a varied and sustainable freshly roasted coffee supply, it became his ambition to bring this awareness to the UK public, whilst also reducing the direct cost to the customer for roasted or green beans.

     

    Goals

     

    We are proud to make our aspirations for our company transparent. It is with each day that we bring them one step closer to achieve them:

     

    • Worldwide sourcing of coffee beans to the UK public.Streamlining the sourcing of coffee beans, to benefit not only the farmer but our clients too.Farmers to see a greater return on their product.
    • Clients to see a reduction in cost per cup.Promote Fairtrade awareness in the public and coffee bean supply.
    • Promote home roasting of green beans in the UK.
    • Move towards charitable donations per order.
    • Grow the Stag brand in the consumer marketplace.
    • Establish events in the UK and abroad to promote the stag brand.

     

     

  • We are really excited to offer another Surrey coffee roaster in the store. Simon has produced an exceptional range of coffee and having tried ALL of them, I can confidently say that whichever you choose, you will not be disappointed...and at a really great price point too!
