What is Decaf Espresso?

Decaffeinated espresso refers to an espresso shot made from decaffeinated coffee beans. If your coffee beans are labeled as espresso beans, that’s because they’re roasted in a way that’s perfect for espresso. It is usually medium or dark roasted. However, espresso is a brewing method rather than a type of coffee bean, so you can use any flavor of coffee you like.

Does Decaf Espresso contain Caffeine?

Coffee is decaffeinated through Swiss water treatment, ethyl acetate, or supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction.

Decaffeination is very effective, but only removes 99 percent of caffeine. Even decaffeinated coffee contains trace amounts of caffeine.

Additionally, these decaffeination processes alter the natural aroma and taste of the beans. Therefore, if you are drinking decaffeinated espresso for the first time, the coffee may have a weaker flavor or taste different than regular brewed coffee.

In our bodies, it increases focus and energy, and has many other health benefits, but it can also cause tension, anxiety, and an upset stomach in some people.

You should also use a high quality espresso machine. Once you have a great decaf bean and an espresso machine, drink espresso just like you would regular espresso.

Once you have set your grind and brew times, you can start making all kinds of great espresso-based decaf drinks, including lattes and cappuccinos.

If our shot pulls too quickly, it’s going to be really sour, astringent, and lacking sweetness. When decaf…is a well-balanced shot, it’s a sweet, smooth cup of coffee.

Decaffeinated espresso is the perfect way to enjoy the aroma and foam of an afternoon cappuccino without the jitters and sleepless nights.
