Had this coffee been labeled better I would have known not to buy it...and I bought 2! I never buy dark roast as I find it so strong and bitter. I have to dilute this coffee so much that it's going to last an eternity! If you like strong decaf, this is the coffee for you...but if you don't, stay away!
I love all the Wild coffees I’ve ordered so far, including the decaf. All the flavor of a caffeinated coffee; perfect for after dinner or afternoon and I don’t have to worry about being up all night.
Absolutely love Wild Foods coffee. Excellent quality and great flavors. Tried many other brands before settling on these. Unfortunately Wild Foods has changed the original “one-way” bag for a cheaper roll down and secure bag which does not keep the coffee as fresh as it could. I am very disappointed by this change.
Love this coffee along with all the other coffees I have tried from wildfoods! Very pleased with all of the products I have tried! Your coffee is absolutely Amazing love waking up to it every morning!
Decaf Done Right
It can be difficult to find a decaffeinated coffee option that has a pleasant taste. Our Wild Coffee beans are the cleanest, most Wild we could find out of the dozens of coffees we tested. These hit the spot!
We've chosen select Premium Grade beans which are always single-origin and sourced from small farms, growing crops cultivated with care.
How To Brew The Decaffeinated Way
Distinctive Drip: 2 tbsp medium grind coffee to 8 ounces of 195-205 degree water.
Pour Over Procedure: 28g of coarse ground coffee to 310g of 200 degree water.
Chemex Decaf: 6 tbsp of coarse ground coffee to 700g of water.
Fair Coffee Practices
Products that meet Fair Trade standards promote growing crops in a way that provides training for farmers. Which can include advice on switching to environmentally friendly practices, such as developing nutrient-rich soils that then support healthy plants and encourage wildlife to help control pests and diseases naturally.
This means helping the environment, educating people, and providing you with a healthier product to enjoy!

Wild Lonestar Coffee FAQ
Keep it stored away from light and heat in an air tight container. Don't refrigerate your beans and only freeze your beans if you don't plan on using them soon. Then make sure you triple wrap them.
The darker the roast, the more you will see the shiny coffee oils on the exterior of the beans. This is a sign of freshness as most mass-produced coffee, because it is stale, does not have these yummy coffee oils still on the beans because they have dried out. The more you roast a coffee bean, the more you draw out the coffee oils that are inside the bean. Lighter roasts still have the oils inside the beans, which makes them look "dry," while the darker roasts will shimmer with wonderful shiny coffee oils on their exterior.
We don't... in a lab, that is. Our beans are fresh roasted locally in Austin, Texas by an organic coffee roaster and are sourced fair trade and single-origin. They are also mostly wet processed (Sidamo is dry process on raised beds). In our extensive human tests, mold or toxins have never been an issue with our bean, even when we've tested consuming beans that were stored for 2 months in the cabinet!
All Wild Coffee and Wild Cold Brew products are fresh roasted each Monday morning. We pick them up from the roaster Wednesdays (this gives the coffee a day to "rest" as it needs to) and send out packages that afternoon and Thursday!
