Our Story

Talking Crow Coffee Roasters is a Washington based specialty coffee micro roaster founded in 2017 by me, Carol, along with my husband, Eric.   

Do you love coffee, but hate the jitters or anxiety that comes from caffeine?  Or  maybe you need to limit or eliminate caffeine for health reasons? Do you wish you had the same coffee choices as regular drinkers?  Looking for decaf that tastes great?  Me too, so I started this coffee roasting business that focuses on crafting exceptional decaf, then my husband suggested to include a little bit of regular too because after all… coffee is for everyone – caffeine isn’t.

My journey with decaf began after the birth of our 8th (and last) baby when I suffered from extreme adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism.  Completely exhausted, my doctor insisted that I give up caffeine.  Seriously?  That felt like the end of the world.  How would I get through the day without that boost?  But wanting to get healthy, I switched to decaf.  Eric and I still continued to go on coffee dates.  He would enjoy a delicious single origin espresso or pour over and I, well... my only option was a decaf blend that usually didn’t taste very good and often had been decaffeinated with chemicals. YUCK.  Not the satisfying, enjoyable experience I yearned for.  That’s when we both had a light-bulb moment and realized that so many others who need to avoid caffeine were facing the same problem so we purposed to focus this roastery on crafting really excellent decaf. 

So whether you are an occasional or a consistent decaf coffee drinker, YOU NOW HAVE CHOICES!  We offer you the largest selection of single origin Swiss Water Process decaf coffees.  And for those of you who drink regular...we do a little bit of that too!

We think these things make for excellent coffee: 

Using only 100% natural and chemical free Swiss Water Process decaffeinated green beans.  

Pursuing quality relationships with the producers and importers allows us to source the best quality beans.

Ensuring quality and consistency through small batch roasting

Minimizing our carbon footprint by reducing carbon emissions by roasting on a fluid bed air roaster. 

 All day. Every day. Coffee you love.
