Why do you drink decaf coffee? 

Over the past 10 years, I’ve had a gradual conversion from drinking several cups of black coffee a day to now mostly drinking decaf or half-caf coffee. I started limiting my caffeine intake when I was diagnosed with severe acid reflux. Although my caffeine intake is now minimal, I still very much enjoy the culture around coffee and it remains a big part of my lifestyle. Catching up with a friend over a cup of coffee is one of my favorite pastimes. I’ve seldomly had any issues ordering my non-caffeinated beverage of choice at most establishments. 

What’s your favorite decaf coffee?

I love exploring independent coffee shops especially when traveling. There is something oddly comforting and welcoming when you walk into a coffee shop and smell the warm aroma of coffee. I’ve also met so many wonderful people at local coffee shops who have unique stories to share. I don’t necessarily have a favorite brand of decaf coffee but when traveling, I often pick up a bag of locally roasted coffee beans. Most recently while vacationing in Kauai, Hawaii, I enjoyed a decaf latte every morning from Eden Coffee (a must-try if you’re staying on the south part of Kauai) and picked up a bag of locally grown coffee beans that their espressos are made from.

How do people react to your decaf preference?

Most people are indifferent to my decaf preferences. When I’m out with my two young children, I’ll  occasionally get the “you need caffeine” look/comment from people. Personally, having a brief caffeine high isn’t worth the pending crash and heartburn.
