Cocoa ~ praline ~ caramel
A blend of Brazilian beans taken to a medium-dark roast. Well balanced, with a small amount of acidity.
Sometimes you just want an easy decaffeinated coffee that just tastes of… well, coffee! This is a blend using Brazilian smallholder farms from the Minas Gerais region, which are then decaffeinated using a chemical method - it uses the mildly scary-sounding methylene-chloride, a solvent which is able to extract caffeine from coffee.
By soaking the beans in water and the solvent multiple times, you end up with a reduction of 97% caffeine - not as high as our Swiss Water Decaffeinated, but still very impressive! This isn’t a speciality decaf, but is perfect for catering scenarios.
We work closely with farms worldwide to make sure that coffee farmers are paid a fair price, through Fairtrade and our own Direct Trade certifications. Working hard with coffee farmers to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
We maintain long term relationships with our carefully selected coffee farms, to provide the stability they need to plan for the future. The added bonus? Coffee that improves with every single crop, as their farming practices and equipment improves.

We, at Wogan Coffee, have been lovingly hand-roasting speciality, ethical, sustainable and traceable coffees since 1970. In our third generation, and a wholly independent family company, you can find us rooted in Bristol; the same city as when Mr Wogan established the business over fifty years ago. Laura and James, grandchildren of the bowler hatted gentleman, now have the ropes firmly in their grasp; James as our resident Q Grader in the Bristol Roastery Headquarters, and Laura in London.
