Among the most unique of Blue Hummingbird Coffee’s lineup, Laurina beans naturally have significantly lower caffeine content. These beans do not go through the traditional decaffeination process, thereby retaining all its flavor and quality. Taste the nuttiness coupled with sweet undertones of caramel and vanilla at any hour of the day.

Every Cup of Coffee Has a Story

Laurina beans are a naturally occurring low-caffeinated coffee. This notoriously difficult to grow varietal was discovered in the 18th century in Africa. Its lack of caffeine, a natural pest deterrent, made Laurina more susceptible to insect damage. This varietal almost disappeared, but in recent years, it has resurged to become a popular alternative to decaffeinated coffee.

This microlot comes from the Doka Estate. The farm is located on the foothills of the famous Poas Volcano and has been owned and operated by the Vargas family for many generations. The unique microclimates and Volcanic soils of the region give this microlot a soft and delicate cup profile.

I keep coming back for more

I am not a review writer but this is my second review for Doka Laurina. I love this coffee. It gives me a smooth, nicely-balanced coffee, without bitterness and without too much caffeine. I used to drink half-caf, mixing a favorite brew with a decaf (never as good). This coffee delivers a bit more caffeine and a wonderful taste.

Unique Coffee

I love the low caffeine and the subtle changes in flavor as the cup cools - wow! I use a fine rather than medium grind for this coffee. However, I do think a medium roast would serve this bean better, but the dark is very good too.

My new favorite low caffeine bean

The flavor is wonderful and the bean grinds easier than the other low caffeine varieties I have tried.

Best coffee ever

I love this coffee so much that I am willing to take time out of my busy life to write a review. It is a silky, deep coffee with a slight citrus tang to it. There is nothing bitter about it and it lays in the stomach very quietly. “Bloody gorgeous” says my British friend.
