Beans with low caffeine content (but not decaf)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there are any coffee beans out there that naturally have a fairly low caffeine content, rather than being decaffeinated in the processing stage?

Not sure who has any at the mo. But the Laurina from Brazil has a very low caffeine content . 

There are places that do half and half roasts too ( Decaf and Non ) 


I write a blog, it's nothing to do with coffee ...

Hi

I went to Barn Berlin recently, and instead of decaf they were serving a low caffeine varietal bean called Laurina.

Tasted good,  . . . . . unlike their service !

I've heard from quite a few people about how bad the service is at The Barn!

I think this is a hard thing to find but yeah the Lauria is supposed to be lower caffeine.

Why not make your own half and half blend, it's not rocket science.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll definitely give the Laurina a try.

I guess depending on the luck of the ‘scoop’ the 18g of beans you put in to the grinder may well have large variations in caffeine

Shouldn't be a problem if you're single dosing & mixing the blend each grind.
