Colombia: Decaf Organic
Dark chocolate. Clove. Ginger.
A simply amazing decaf coffee from the Sierra Nevada region of Colombia. For most of coffee's history, decaffeinated coffee has meant sacrificing aromatics, acidity, and just general excitement. I am happy to offer this organic decaf that has been carefully grown and processed. It was then sent through the Swiss Water Process that removes 99% of the caffeine using only water. No chemicals in your decaf. The coffee displays a rich clove and chocolate aroma. The flavor is dark chocolate with notes of ginger (the aromatics of ginger, not the spiciness) and stonefruit. It also displays a pleasant winey acidity. I love the subtlety of this coffee. It is mild, yet the flavors that are presented are deep and full. If you thought all decaf tasted like wet cardboard, you are in for a big surprise!
