Researchers report the discovery of a coffee bean with virtually no caffeine:
“It’s the news coffee-loving insomniacs the world over have been waiting for – scientists have discovered a naturally caffeine-free coffee plant.
A cup of decaf could soon taste as good as caffeinated thanks to an Ethiopian variety of Coffea arabica, which provides high-quality coffee for about 70% of the world market. “
Dancing in the streets may be a bit premature… it’ll be years before production is viable, and it’s possible that coffee brewed from this particular strain could taste just awful.
