The long neglected ugly duckling of the specialty coffee world, decaffeinated coffee options are often a poor substitute for the real thing. The Firefly Project is all about changing the pre-conceived notions about decaf.
We began by sourcing an exceptional, single origin coffee from a progressive, Rainforest Alliance certified producer group in South America. We selected a coffee with the character to maintain its exceptional taste and aroma through the decaffeination process.
In order to reach our goal of creating a sustainable decaffeinated coffee that doesn't compromise taste, we selected the patented Swiss Water process to remove the caffeine without the use of chemicals. The result is a rich, aromatic coffee that we are proud to offer exclusively to our distinguished clients.
We roast Firefly to a medium level to accentuate its buttery body and caramelized sugar flavors. With its dark chocolate notes and clean finish, this decaffeinated coffee is ideal for traditional drip and espresso brewing.
Tasting Notes: Buttery, caramelized sugar, dark chocolate with a clean finish.
Varietal: Mundo Novo.
Certification: Rainforest Alliance and Swiss Water Process decaf.
Roasted in Oakville, ON Canada.

Whole Bean Grind Chart
If you are purchasing a bag of whole bean coffee on our website, you can select your grind method of choice (at no extra charge!) from the dropdown and we will grind and ship it to you. We grind the beans freshly for you at our warehouse in ECS Coffee Burlington right before your order is shipped, and reseal the package to maintain optimal freshness in transit.
If you are visiting us in store, you can also request for your beans to be ground in store before you take them home.
We use a commercial BUNN Burr Grinder to grind the beans.
Please note: Freshly ground coffee is non-refundable and not returnable. To ensure that you receive a ground coffee that is consistent with your brew method of choice, refer to our Grind Chart below!
|For use with espresso machines. Fine coffee grinds will have the size and feel of sand.|
Choose a medium fine grind if you are brewing with a Moka Pot, stovetop espresso brewers or an Aeropress.
Cone Filter - We use two medium settings depending on your brewer. The Cone Filter medium setting is a bit finer, and is suitable for pour-over drip brewers (cone style) such as Hario, Melitta, Clever. It is also used for cone style automatic brewers.
Flat Bottom Filter - This setting is suitable for coffee machines with a flat bottom basket filter, such as commercial automatic drip machines. It is also an appropriate setting for if you have a refillable coffee capsule for use in Keurig® machines. Medium coffee grinds will be around the same size as sea salt.
If you are brewing with a percolator, the grind setting is a bit coarser than your standard medium grind, to minimize grinds making it through the filter. We use a percolator-specific setting on our grinder.
Vaccuum brewers, Chemex.
For french press, cold brew coffee. A coarse grind is very chunky in look, like crushed peppercorns.
Remember that this coffee grind chart is a guideline! If you use a coffee brewing method that is not listed here, feel free to reach out and we will let you know which grind is the best for your brewer.

Not Very Fresh
Beans seemed stale and hard to dial in. Generally I can get a new fresh bag dialled in within 2-3 shots, this one took half the bag and was still not perfect. Very little crema and poor mouth feel compared to other local roasters I use. Flavour was okay, maybe would be more enjoyable if they were roasted within the past 2 weeks but brewed similar to the freshness level of grocery store beans.
Bought decaf for medical reasons…only temporary. I bought Reunion Island because it is served at my club and is excellent coffee!
Best decaf so far!
It was a pleasant surprise to drink a decaf coffee that tasted great. I had a friend over who prefers to drink decaf and it got her seal of approval. I gave her some to take home. I highly recommend it.
Great decaf option
Excellent decaf coffee. Full flavour, no bitterness. Makes a really good cup of decaf coffee.
good taste for decaf
definitely not best coffee, but it tastes good for decaf.
