I switched to decaff completely last September but that hasn't meant comprising on flavour. This Brazilian bean is rich, tasty and full-flavoured, and it won't keep you awake a night. Well done Gary and Maarit, you have come up trumps again!
This is my favourite decaf coffee from Coffee Real!
Best decaf we have had! Rounded, smooth but with good depth. Hazelnut warmth and really can't tell it's not caffeinated!
So tried all the decafs except Ugandan and the one from Peru, I found this the most nutty out of the lot, noticeably loads of crema, would order again, would say in my top 5 but not close to the greatness of the Rwandan for me. 8/10
Love this coffee, can't buy de-caff coffee beans where I live, first bought this at a garden centre farm shop in Surrey, so pleased I can buy it online, excellent company too, super fast delivery

Oberon coffee could be described as the Queen of Brazilian coffees. Only the best and finest coffees from Brazil’s Cerrado region find their way into Oberon.
The Cerrado region is located in the southwestern part of the Minas Gerais state. It is a region famous for its homogeneous climate, altitude and product quality characteristics. The average temperature lies around 20°C. The average rainfall of about 1,600mm per year occurs mainly during the rainy season from December to March. The Cerrado, with its production area of around 140,000 ha, is between 900 and 1,250 meters above sea level. In this area there are about 3600 coffee producers, the majority of them organized in large cooperatives.
Cerrado is located in a dry and flat region in southwestern Minas Gerais. Because it is mainly dry and flat, producers can worry less about the elements and focus more of their time and energy on producing great coffee. The cherries are picked at the best stage of their maturation, which allows the bean to absorb as much sweetness as possible.
All year long, a workforce of around 20,000 men and women are employed here. This workforce is necessary to take care of the plantations during the growth and ripening time. During the harvest season this number increases up to 180,000 workers, all working to bring in the coffee as fast as possible in order to guarantee the high quality that this region is so well known for.
Coffee beans are mixed with pure water.
- When the coffee absorbs the water the grains expand, their pores get opened and the caffeine molecules become mobile.
- At this point carbon dioxide is added ( a 100% natural element) at a 100 atmospheres pressure to the pure water.
- Basically the water and the carbon dioxide are mixed to create sparkling water.
- The carbon dioxide acts like a magnet and attracts all the caffeine molecules that become movable.
- When the caffeine is captured by the carbon dioxide, this is removed.
- The carbon dioxide is very selective and it doesn't touch the carbohydrates and proteins of the coffee beans.
- The carbohydrates and the proteins are the ones that give the coffee the flavour and smell after it is made.
- When the carbon dioxide has finished removing the caffeine, the coffee seeds are dried naturally
- Carbon dioxide is then recycled and caffeine is sold for other commercial uses.
Benefits of this method:
- Extracts caffeine effectively. Is a direct contact method but does not use chemicals.
- Does not chemically affect proteins or carbohydrates of the coffee beans.
- The byproducts are natural and a 100% recyclable.
