    Brewed Decaf vs. Decaf Cafe Americano

    I was wondering if anyone out there is making a decaf americano when a customer asks for a decaf cup of coffee. I don't have very many customers asking for decaf coffee so I can't see making several pots of decaf coffee in a day and pouring the majority of each pot down the drain.Since I live in the Sunbelt (aka retirement belt) I do have a large base of potential customers who might want decaf at some point in their day. I've only been in business for about 4 months and I do pour out a lot of decaf coffee. Any suggestions?

    serve decaf

    How about making a french press of decaf for the customers? Takes a few minutes but very tasty. Then you won't waste a whole potful of coffee.

    Decaf

    We have supplied decaf americanos instead of drip for the last two years, you give the customer a great coffee and you are not dumping out pots of decaf

    I like this Idea Did it take long for you customers to accept the Americanos for the drip?

    Decaf

    They accepted it right from the start, we explained that because of the lower volume of decaf drinkers it was the only way we could provide them with a quality cup.

    You could also make a half a pot of decaf

    i've seen places do that also

    As a decaf drinker. I don't think I would like a decaf americano even though I've never tried it. I'd rather have a fresh cup of decaf

    Decaf

    You couldn't get a fresher cup of decaf than an Americano. As the old expression goes "Try it youll like it.

    Well I like espresso and I like decaf but I don't think I would like watered down espresso even though it probably is the same it might be a mental block, thinking that i'm drinking watered down espresso

    I'm going to find somebody who knows what they are doing and try an americano

    How ironic - I was just talking to my employees today about this same topic. We too have just been open a short while (about 6 weeks). From the 2nd week, we stopped brewing a pot of decaf each day because we've been getting MAYBE 1 request a week for decaf. We talked about serving decaf Americano's this morning as an alternative. It's great to hear that others are doing the same and getting good results. I will start offering this tomorrow on a regular basis.
