Organic De-Cafe Coffee

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created January 14, 2013 at 10:53 AM

Hey Guys,

I was wondering what your thoughts are on Organic De-Caf coffee? I want to see if I can introduce it into my Paleo diet but known that generally coffee is a no go. I want to reintoduce it for the health benefits of coffee and the fact I miss the taste.

I do not want to introduce caffeine. I read on forums the main objection to de-caf is the method its made, chemicals etc but I can avoid that with the Organic Stuff.

Any thoughts or feed back would be appreciated :)

I was about to say the same thing :)! Nevertheless, I would love to see any data supporting that whole mycotoxin story. Dave Asprey talks this up, but I couldn't find anything to scientifically support it. Maybe he should just post a set of data comparing his coffee to organic decaf, to starbucks, to ... That would make his whole story more credible. He wouldn't even have to name the coffee beans he tested, I just would like to be able to visually assess the differences.

Paleo is a fad?

But this would only be valid for Robusto beans. I get decaf beans from a quality roaster, who uses similar beans for their caffeinated varieties.

I actually thought coffee was allowed. Anyway, go ahead and drink it unless you have a particular sensitivity which makes it a problem. I don't see why caffeine (in the right amounts) is a problem.

going without coffee is a no-go for this guy. You can take my sugar and grains, but you cannot take my coffee!

I also am interested in decaf coffee. I DO believe that going with a quality cup of regular, caffeinated coffee is superior, but for myself (and probably other people as well), I am too caffeine-sensitive to drink it more than once a week.

I am ordering the decaf from Kicking Horse Coffee - They use a natural way to remove the caffeine and retain the flavor. I will let you know how it goes!

Woooooow, back-up. Why do you want to introduce decaf at all? Do you like the taste of of coffee? If so, why not just drink a good coffee in moderation? If that's not it then what is? Do you want to increase fats and think bulletproof coffee is the only way but are allergic to caffeine? Maybe we can help find an alternative. No point going to all the trouble of finding and replacing like with sub-par like when a complete alternative may be available.

The cafeine inside the coffeebean actually protects it against mold. Decaf always going to have so mycotoxin contamination. I would say, drink regular coffee, in moderation (1-2 cups per day)! Something like Dave Asprey's bulletproof coffee, or something organically grown, water processed.

It is well-known throughout the coffee industry that decaffeinated coffee is more acidic than regular coffee due to the fact that decaffeinated coffee is made from Robusta beans. Robusta beans are used because they retain more of the coffee flavor after the decaffeination process; Robusta beans have a higher concentration of caffeine and are more acidic than other beans. This is problematic for people with health problems such as acid reflux, GERDS and ulcers making them susceptible to the detrimental effects of high levels of acidity check out this link https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/demon.local/Iu9dYu8BnwE
