At Dallis Bros., we have a lot of respect for decaf drinkers because we know they’re drinking coffee for the flavor, not the buzz. This coffee is decaffeinated with the Swiss Water Process which wash the beans in warm water with a special filter to ensure the flavor is not affected.
"On July 11, 1985 the Cooperativa de Cafeicultores e Agropecuaristas (COCAPEC) was founded.

Last August we traveled to Brazil with our import partner Ally Brazil. Our goal was to find the best coffee of the harvest. We cupped upwards of 50 coffees and two stood out.
The Black Diamond with its notes of chocolate, caramel, almond and full body seemed ideal for espresso. The Blue Diamond carries a delicious citric acidity as found in lemons & tangerines, with a nearly perfect, lingering finish. Together these coffees formed a complex and delicious cup. We knew what we had to do - we bought both.
We believe this coffee has it all. Besides having a great flavor profile, it is also fully traceable. Each bag of green coffee comes with a QR code containing all the farm information plus a complete flavor analysis from certified Q Graders.

Reko washing station started production in 2001 and is located in Kochere, Yirgacheffe at an altitude of around 1850-2100 meters. During harvest, which normally takes place between late October and mid-January, about 850 farmers bring their red cherries to the washing station.
The washed coffees are first washed with water from a nearby river, after which they are pulped by an old Agard pulping-machine. The mucilage is removed by traditional fermentation, which lasts 36-48 hours depending on the weather conditions. The coffee is then dried on raised African beds (over 120 beds are present at the washing station) for 10-12 days.

Los San Juanes is a farm located in the county of San Antonio La Paz in the department of El Progreso in Guatemala. Part of the mountain range known as Sierra de Las Minas, Los San Juanes goes from 1700 to 1900 meters in altitude. This is the highest non volcanic chain of mountains in Guatemala outside of the Huehuetenango Region.
This farm is owned and operated by Don Higinio Gómez and his son Carlos Gómez, who were among the first visionary farmers to transition into coffee over forty years ago. The farm has an extension of 60 hectares where Borbon, Pache San Ramón and an assorted mix of unidentified yellow varietals grow under native forest shade. A micro climate of humid forest dominated by pine trees gives character to this new profile of coffee that we are recently starting to discover.
Los San Juanes can be summed up in one word - sweetness. This coffee overwhelms with a sweet smoothness throughout. With notes of caramel and honey it finishes with a lingering taste of dried cherry.

Whether you’re preparing it as drip coffee or as espresso, the harmonies between chocolate, spice and mild fruity acidity, along with a robust, full body, are endless in this coffee. Its flavor profiles also make it a natural companion for milk.

From the days nearly 100 years ago when brothers Abe and Morris Dallis began their horse-and-buggy coffee trade on the cobbled streets of New York City to the changing times of today, Dallis Bros. Coffee has always kept the tastes of New Yorkers at the forefront of their business. Though times — and roasting styles — have changed as the city’s grown, so has Dallis Bros. grown with them, keeping a constant focus on innovation and quality while always working to craft that perfect cup.
Working in tandem with our Q Graders and artisanal roasters, Dallis Bros. Director of Coffee chooses coffees from a year-round rotation of harvests to maintain the balanced, intense and direct flavors of our trusted New York Espresso blend across the growing seasons of the world, and the dynamic seasons of New York City itself.
New York is a city full of people constantly striving, and Dallis Bros. is no different as it continues to strive to create that perfect New York cup, to drink from Canal Street to Riverside Drive, to end the finest meal or to pair with your Cannoli. Through our intimate experience with the city’s tastes, we’ve learned what New Yorkers want. This espresso blend offers something strong, a bit smoky, pleasantly bittersweet with hints of tobacco. As unreserved and vibrant as the city itself.
Strong, smoky, and sweet. As unreserved and vibrant as the city itself.
Similar to our other decafs the New York Espresso Decaf is not "just decaf". We treat our decafs with pride because decaf drinkers are so dedicated to drinking coffee that they drink it for the flavor and the ritual. So why not make it taste good?
When when we designed the New York Espresso Decaf, we used only Fair Trade Organic Certified ingredients. In the roasting process we roast those ingredients to craft a blend that is delicious as espresso for a late night shot or a cappuccino.
Not just decaf — balanced and lush, and Fair Trade Organic, to boot.
Red Den is a combination of three top quality Arabica coffees from Central America, South America and Indonesia. Each of these three coffees brings a unique element to the blend, both in terms of the origins themselves, the processes utilized during the harvest, and of course the flavor profiles created.

Red Den is a darker roast profile. Bold flavors of mesquite, spice, dark chocolate, and creamy body are all attributes brought to the fore by our artisanal roasting methodology.

Just like it sounds. Dark and delicious.
If you like the depth of a dark roast flavor without the caffeine, nestle up in a cup of Red Den. We've carefully crafted a dark roasted coffee that is both Swiss Water Processed (SWP) and Fair Trade Organic Certified (FTO).
Swiss Water Process is our preferred decaffeination method — no chemicals are used, leaving the coffee tasting great. And the Fair Trade Organic Certifications on these coffees are important because they show a commitment by the growers to not use chemicals on their coffees during production.
Bold flavors of mesquite, spice, dark chocolate, and creamy body are all brought to the fore in this great blend, perfect for drinking at any time of day.
Dark roasted decaf that tastes great.
THE KOPERASI PEDAGANG KOPI KETIARA is a women-run cooperative that has over 890 grower-members who cultivate coffee on more than 830 hectares of land. The Ketiara Cooperative was started in 2008 by Ibu Rahmah, the current chairwoman, who had operated and managed her family’s coffee business for 20 years--purchasing cherries, processing the green, and selling to local traders. The passionate commitment of the co-op’s women managers to have all members working together in support of coffee production has enabled Ketiara to expand and become an important supplier to larger coffee traders in Medan, the capital of North Sumatra.
After much discussion, the cooperative members voted to become organic and Fairtrade certified in 2012, making a commitment to use these proceeds to create programs for health, education, and public infrastructure projects that will benefit all co-op members.

The name Unisphere celebrates the rich heritage of Queens, paying homage to the World’s Fair icon that represents the borough’s contributions to innovation, and the promise of what our world can produce when the best and brightest come together.

Good to drink all day.
Here at Dallis Brothers Coffee we respect decaf drinkers. They're the people who drink coffee not for the buzz, but for the ritual and the flavor.
In order to produce a good decaf coffee we need to first start with good green (unroasted) coffee. Then that coffee should be decaffienated without use of chemicals — like the Swiss Water Process method. The Swiss Water Process involves putting the green coffee in a hot water bath to extract the caffeine and flavor compounds in the coffee. Then the water is run through a carbon filter where the caffeine attaches to the filter. The flavor compounds are reintroduced into the coffee and dried.
We go through all the effort of finding you a nice decaf so that you can enjoy drinking it. Our Unisphere Blend Decaf is delicious with notes of milk chocolate and subtle notes of cinnamon wrapped around a creamy body.
Milk chocolate and cinnamon mingle, without the caffeine.
