I used to view the caffeine content of coffee the same way God views marriage:

“What God has joined together, let not man separate.” 

But many folks tell me they have ‘issues of the heart’ that simply will not allow them to enjoy coffee in the natural state which God intended. 

Well the Lord, in His mercy, has heard your cries for a delicious brew that doesn’t pack an unholy cardiac punch … and while it may not be the way I’d drink it, this decaffeinated brew is sure to promote your ‘Sanka’-tification.

In the early 1900’s, there was a concerted effort to demonize coffee; and while some of the blame was legit; like insomnia and arrhythmia...  Much of the blame was excessive.

One crusader, a Dr. Harvey Wiley, said “coffee drunkenness is a commoner failing than the whiskey habit… This country is full of tea and coffee drunkards.  The most common drug in this country is caffeine.”

And all this besmirching of caffeine wasn’t without effect.

Ludwig Roselius - a young German inventor, had experienced the unfortunate death of his father at a young age.  However, what left the greatest impact was that Roselius’ father was actually a professional coffee taster. 

Young Ludwig firmly believed caffeine caused his father’s demise. 

So in 1906 Ludwig patented a process to directly extract the caffeine from green coffee beans…

Voilà… decaffeinated coffee was born.

Patent in hand, Ludwig emigrated into the U.S. in 1914 to make his fortune, but in 1917 the U.S. Government had a rather different idea.  Our dear leaders decided to use the Alien Property Custodian Act and “seized” his company, along with all of his patents… which were promptly sold to someone else.

Ludwig Roselius lost all of his material possessions… but he refused to be beaten.

He took his knowledge and accumulated skill and moved back to Europe where he started over.  He used the brand name Sanka (a contraction of the French “Sans Caffeine”) and developed a powerhouse marketing and production system.

Seven years after the U.S. Government had seized all of his life’s work, he moved back to United States to RE-START  what would become the dominate decaffeinated coffee for decades. 

And with a history like that - I’ve come to view decaffeinated coffee in a more positive light.

You may not have the caffeine in this cup of coffee, but you may get something better.

Why not drink down that indomitable fighting spirit that simply refuses to quit?  When other men and women are fearful to move and ready to quit… march out boldly on the promises and providence of God.

HERESY - our particular approach to decaffeinated coffee glory is an intoxicating medium roast with a luxuriant blend of the full bodied Sumatran, the delicate floral Ethiopian and punch from the denser Costa Rican bean that provides a rich and flavorful brew with no bitterness on the finish.

Really good…for decaf!

Probably the best tasting decaf coffee on the market! If you want decaf, buy this!

Heresy is great for Bible study

Our Bible study takes place in the evenings and I’ve found Heresy to be a hit with my group. Heresy keeps us from bouncing all over the place in the Scripture or mess with our sleep schedules. Go ahead and pour another cup of Heresy and drink it down. It won’t keep you up at night.

We love Reformed Roasters!!!

Upon learning of the existence of your company, we immediately ordered the T.U.L.I.P. sampler pack. We enjoyed each variety, with our favorites being Irresistible Grace and Total Depravity. Our second order included one pound bags of each favorite plus a pound of whole bean Heresy. (These names are the greatest! Lol)
Heresy: Nice that it is whole bean, because we rarely brew decaf. But when friends or family come over for dinner and dessert is served, decaf is a must. Smooth all-purpose medium blend delicious black or all candied up with sugar, half-n-half, or flavored creamer.
Irresistible Grace: Smooth and balanced medium roast with the chocolate notes we love at our house. Perfect morning cup.
Total Depravity: I don’t know how you do it, but this dark roast is deliciously smokey; like sitting around the campfire on a chilly night smokey. Never had anything like it! Dark but not bitter. I drink it black. Unique and special, I love it on a Monday morning when I gotta get going.
My husband teaches a Bible Study group at our church. Over the past 15 years he is slowly making 5-point Calvinists of our class members. We are trying to decide what combination of your products we want to order as Christmas gifts for them this year. They are going to love the premise of your company and laugh with delight at their coffee gifts!!!

The coffee is great, but

The coffee is great, but the clever descriptions of the coffee make it all the more enjoyable!
