Which Brew Method do you recommend?
FRINJ Coffee can be brewed many different ways, but most people choose a drip brew method. This can include a pour over or auto drip, which is similar to a pour over. We also have people that enjoy French Press and Aero Press. One of the fun things about fine coffee is the ability to explore different brewing methods that fit your style and your palate.
Do you sell decaffeinated coffee?
No, we do not sell decaffeinated coffee but we do sell Laurina, a rare coffee which naturally offers about half the caffeine content of a typical coffee. It is wonderfully sweet and spicy and perfect for those who want to experience fine coffee with a lighter caffeine content.
