Do You Drink Decaf Coffee?

With the $2 billion business of decaffeinated coffee at a plateau, coffee companies are focusing their efforts on new "low-caf" blends. While decaf coffee has long been considered less flavorful, these breakthrough blends are genetically manipulated to be naturally lower in caffeine but complex in taste.

As an everyday coffee drinker, I hadn't realized that the decaf business was so lucrative, and was surprised to learn of the staggering numbers.

Clearly, there's a demand for caffeine-free coffee. Are you a committed decaf drinker? I'd love to hear your reasons in the comments below.

If I'm drinking in it in the evening, I make "half caff" coffee so it's not completely devoid of flavor. But if I'm drinking coffee in the morning, it's full-octane for me.

Penny C, They do. It's sold under at least one big brand. I think it might be Folger's (?), but don't quote me on that.

Before 3:00 pm = regular, hands down; After 3:00 pm = settling for decaf.

Only if I'm craving the flavors, but not too much kick.

I do something I call half-caf - one scoop of regular, one scoop of decaf. Good stuff. I feel fine on days when I don't have it :)

I might drink it at a restaurant after a meal. I drink coffee for the taste as well as the caffeine, so there are times that I want a cup but don't want it to keep me up. Of course, I never have it on hand at home, so it's rare.

Decaf is bad for you (due to the process of decaffination) unless its water pressed decaf. CHECK IT LADIES!

I grew up in a household of serious coffee drinkers, decaf was referred to as an "abomination" :-P

I had a decaf americano on Saturday. It was excellent! The only reason I did was because I had a few cups of coffee earlier and was still feeling pretty wired.
