Episode 38: The growing business case for decaffeinated coffee

This week on the podcast we’re exploring the growing demand for decaffeinated coffee and its increasing potential in the specialty landscape.

In conversations with Laura Burton, Marketing Lead for Coffee, Taylors of Harrogate, Chris Kornman, Director of Education, Royal Coffee, and Emmanuel Dias, VP of Trading for Europe, Swiss Water, we discuss the different processes for removing caffeine, find out how big the decaf market is globally and what the driving trends are for this small but highly promising market segment.
