Decaf can be tricky to roast due to its darker than normal appearance. The humidity of this coffee is not as dry as most Swiss Water Decaf and the coffee roasts a bit more like conventional coffees. This honey processed lot shows a lot of character on the cupping table and can be enjoyed from light to medium to dark roasts, depending on preference. A light roast will have much more acidity than typical decafs.
Yellow and red catuai varieties are pulped and dried in their mucilage as a honey. The coffee is then shipped to Descamex in Mexico where the caffeine is removed with pure water from Pico de Orizaba using a water saturation process that removes caffeine without the use of chemicals.
Lots of cocoa and crema. My wife love's this stuff for her morning americano.
Awesome! Thank you for sharing! We have been loving this decaf coffee.
This has quickly become my new favorite decaf to roast. It has a great taste and produces a very nice roast on the Aillio Bullet. This coffee could surprise people in the fact that it’s a decaf because it tastes as good as a regular coffee. A really nice cup rich in taste and flavor (as advertised on the package).
