"Darkly hedonistic, in the best way."

-Julie S. | A Posteriori Coffee Co. Customer

Our same signature Americano Pragmatism blend, but with the caffeine removed. Hints of apple and lemon combine with a dense mouthfeel in this blend. Great for everyday espresso drinking.

Americano Pragmatism is made from a blend of 6 different kinds of espresso beans sourced from around the world. We apply a dark roast to the beans to give it a classic espresso flavor that makes this coffee perfect as a daily staple for espresso enthusiasts. Our Americano Pragmatism is decaffeinated through the Swiss Water® Process, a chemical-free process that removes 99.9% of the caffeine from the beans while retaining their flavor.

Not into decaf? We also make a caffeinated version of Americano Pragmatism.

About the Name

American pragmatism, or pragmatism, is a philosophical tradition that came about in the US during the 1870s. Generally, pragmatists posit that the way people think ought to be geared towards the outcomes of those thoughts and not necessarily concerned with being a "true" representation of the external world. There are many different flavors of pragmatism with prominent pragmatists including Charles Sanders Peirce (pictured above), William James, and John Dewey.

Caffè Americano is a popular coffee beverage, prepared by brewing a shot of espresso and diluting it with some amount of hot water. Allegedly, this recipe originated in Italy during WWII. The story goes that American soldiers stationed there found the coffee the Italians served to be too strong, so they would order hot water to add to the coffee to "Americanize" their coffee. Cafe owners began to refer to this order as a Caffè Americano.

Good decaf

Good taste, but I would like more decaf choices

Bring on More decaf!

American pragmatism is great, but I would also like a medium roast decaf.

Problem Solved!

The first step, of course, is to define the problematic situation: a love of the full flavor of dark roasted coffee but an aversion to caffeine jitters. Not to put too fine a point on it, but this coffee sure works!
