Product Description


A blend of decaffeinated coffee from Mexico and Sumatra, Murchie's Best Decaf is fulfilling and delicious, round and rich, without the caffeine. Not only is this a decaffeinated version of our most popular blend, it is also a very versatile coffee. Great for use in a drip coffee maker, a French press or even as an espresso.


Swiss Water® Decaffeination Process:

  • A batch of green (unroasted) beans is soaked in hot water, releasing caffeine. When all the caffeine and coffee solids are released into the water, the beans are discarded. The water then passes through a carbon filter that traps caffeine but lets the coffee solids pass through. 
  • The resulting solution, called "green coffee extract (GCE)", is now available for decaffeinating coffee. New green coffee beans are introduced to the GCE. Since the GCE is coffee solids without caffeine, only the caffeine diffuses from the new beans. The GCE passes through proprietary carbon, which captures the caffeine. 
  • The process repeats, filtering out all the caffeine until the beans are 99.9% caffeine-free.

    smooth and richReview by lynn
    I just recently bought this as my first bag of Murchie's coffee and was pleasantly surprised by how smooth and rich the flavour was. Unlike a lot of specialty coffees these days, there is no bitterness and yet it retains a full bodied flavour. Although called medium roast, I would say it is toward mild. (Posted on 2013-03-31)

    Flavour Profile Guide

    Tea and coffee tasting is a very individual, multi-dimensional experience: one person’s perfect cup can be too strong or weak, too brisk or watery for the next person. At Murchie’s, we believe that the best tea or coffee is the one that YOU like the best! We use the following flavour profile guides to help compare our teas and coffees within a relative scale.

    Tea Strength Ratings

    This rating method indicates the strength of flavour each tea has when brewed according to our brewing guide.

    Light/Delicate Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Light/Delicate: Very light in colour and delicate in flavour
    Medium Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium: Medium-light cup with slightly fuller cup
    Medium-Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium-Strong: Medium-dark cup, medium body, and full flavour without harshness
    Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Strong: Full body, rich cup, takes milk well
    Very Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Very Strong: Rich, dark cup with very full, strong flavour and briskness


    Coffee Ratings

    We rate the flavour properties of our coffees along two dimensions: roast and body.

    Roast is simply a result of how long and how hot the beans have been roasted, which can be seen in the colour of the finished bean, and typically results in general flavour traits:

    Light Roast           More acidity, brightness and a slight pucker
    Medium Roast           Slightly richer flavours, some acidity, enhanced creaminess
    Dark Roast           Distinctive roasted flavour, sometimes notes of toasted sugar or charcoal

    Body is the term used to describe how the brewed coffee feels in your mouth:

    Light Body           Easy to drink with little lingering flavour, ‘thin’ or ‘clean’ feeling on the palate
    Medium Body           Heavier, creamier mouth-feel with more lingering flavour
    Full Body           Rich, full-mouth feeling: hits all of the palate and lingers
