Flume Creek is a small trout stream near the location of our original roastery in unincorporated Portage County. There are a few small bridges that it passes under that make for a particularly scenic stop while cycle touring on country roads. The name has always given us a little bit of poetic pause. Flume feels soft, rolling, country, gentle. When we were envisioning a name around our new Decaf blend concept, this felt like the perfect alignment. Flume Decaf blend is meant to be an all day drinker, a sweet and reliable cup to go to in those evenings when you've come in out of the cold and want something to warm up to.
Flavor wise it is rich and robust, with the base coffee a really creamy and chocolaty water process from Brazil. The other half is a complex, lightly fruity coffee from Colombia. The two together make a great match and are a great option for espresso. It’s namesake, a flume, is a man-made channel designed to move materials, like logs, around different obstacles or bodies of water.
Though it usually doesn’t get as much attention as it’s caffeinated counterpart, decaffeinated coffee takes much more time, effort, and energy to produce to high quality standards. While the regular flow for coffee is to move through shipping networks directly to roasting warehouses, decaffeinated coffee has to take an alternative route to a decaffeination plant first.
At Ruby, we drink a lot of decaf coffee. It’s the only way we drink coffee all day long like we want to! Developing Decaf Flume Seasonal Blend was our way of making amazing quality decaf coffee available in a year-round blend designed to deliver a consistent flavor profile with amazing flavor quality, We really hope you like drinking it as much as we do.
