What are the best decaf coffee beans in the UK we hear you ask?
Decaf coffee in the United Kingdom has been slowly and steadily entering the mainstream thanks to natural decaffeination processes that retain all the good stuff we love about coffee, while removing those caffeine jitters. With each decaf coffee's unique flavour characteristics retained, more and more people are enjoying decaf coffees in an effort to reduce their caffeine intake.
Almost all of our specialty coffee roasters here on Tasty Decafs report that they're seeing a steady increase in decaf coffee sales to health conscious customers looking to reduce their caffeine intake.

The UK's Best Decaf Coffees in 2021
Here's our list of some of the best decaf coffee beans in the UK in 2021.
Chipp Coffee Co.
One of our favourite decaf coffees! Villa María situated not far from the El Fénix community wet mill and farm and is one of the main drying stations in Chinchiná, Caldas. The station currently represents the harvests of 30 coffee producing families in the surrounding area of Jamaica in the area of Villarazo, sitting at altitudes higher than the drying station itself. As Villa María sits at a lower altitude, it is better suited to the processing of honey and natural coffees due to the hotter temperatures found here.

Revolution Coffee Roasters
We think this decaf coffee is pretty special, it is a flavour packed decaffeinated, double fermented brew.
The double fermentation starts from ripe hand picked cherries, 12-18 hours dry fermentation followed by a wet anaerobic fermentation of 24-36 hours, before being pulped, fully washed and bed dried for 12-18 days, this coffee takes some special care and attention, and gets rewarded with an SCA score of 84.75pts.
This delightful decaf coffee from HEJ COFFEE has hints of molasses, red plum, and biscuit when brewed as espresso, or if you prefer your decaf coffee with milk you might also detect some milk chocolate, salted caramel, and dried fruits. Simply divine!
Jack & The Beans Coffee Co,
A blend of 100% Guatemalan Arabica, this coffee offers notes of zingy citrus fruits and tangy green apple, whilst being wonderfully balanced by undertones of sweet, smooth caramel. If you can get past the lack of the caffeine buzz, this is a superb coffee.
