Switching to decaf

I like coffee. But I drink too much of it, so I've mainly switched to decaf at the moment. My objections to most decaffeinated coffees are 1) they don't taste the same, and 2) I'm worried that they're full of other chemicals left over from the process of removing the caffeine.

So I've been experimenting. Or rather, my wife has been experimenting and I have been the tester/victim. Actually, it's not been too bad, she has chosen wisely.

So far the winners are...

Ground coffee: Grumpy Mule Organic Sumatra

Instant coffee: Clipper Super Special Organic Decaf

Both are organic and fairtrade. Both use a water process to remove the caffeine, so no nasty chemicals. And both taste OK, IMHO (I think they're pretty nice actually).

Sometimes I mix them with a regular coffee to make a 50/50 blend, just to get a little caffeine. Just occasionally.

They are worth checking out, if you're looking for a nice cup of decaf.
