Using the Swiss Water Decaffeination Process, we receive green coffee that is 99.9% decaf, and our roasting process eliminates the final .1%. A complex and balanced flavor, featuring a bold, rich body, and a dark chocolate and caramel flavor. We've put a lot of heart and soul into the creation of our decaf, such that in blind taste tests, coffee lovers have described it as a wonderful mild coffee prior to knowing that it was decaf. There is light acidity and a subtle sweet floral finish. Perfect for cappuccinos and lattes, as well as drip brew and French press.
We have loved this coffee for years. And the folks at the Santa Monica Montana shop are consistently superb, making excellent drinks, moving through the queue of customers at a brisk, but not rushed pace, and are almost unfailingly kind and hospitable. Will continue to recommend Caffe Luxxe for anyone looking for an exalted coffee drink from a professional and well-run establishment.
I discovered Caffé Luxxe coffee on a trip to Ojai. The best coffee had ever had was in Italy almost 20 years ago. I have given up on finding an equivalent in the states until this year when I had my first cup of CL. I immediately went to the CL website and placed an order for two 2-pound bags. Those beans proved that my 1st cup was no fluke. Before I finished those bags, I immediately ordered another 4 pounds. Also, I’m compelled to mention that the customer service at Caffe Luxxe is excellent. When I contacted them about a tiny issue with a discount code being processed — an issue, so Monday, I almost didn’t bother registering it — I heard back almost immediately from the founder. The fact that CL took so much care with my issue (and one that wasn’t even a big deal to me at that), were so prompt and friendly, and made sure everything was perfect is as important to me as the their coffee quality. So happy that I found this brand.
I've been a coffee snob for decades. This is the first time I've found a decaf that doesn't taste like decaf. It is full bodied, rich, and when I've served it to people they are shocked that it's decaf. Delicious! I have it shipped to my home every couple of weeks as there is nothing else I've found that compares, for both drip coffee AND for espresso!
The coffee that I buy from Caffe Luxe is absolutely the best! I’ve gone from using Keurig to grinding my beans and making my coffee via pour over. There is no comparison! For years, I was a regular at that place with long lines and green and white cups, but now I drive by with no desire to stop! I recently bo9ught a bag of decaffeinated beans for my friends who prefer decaf. I tried it for the first time (I’m talking about Caffe Luxxe’s decaf) and it is rich and very enjoyable. I’ll have no problem drinking it if I run out of my regular coffee!
