A wonderful fresh run of Decaf Ethiopian. Sweet, clean, and chocolaty with hints of a red fruit tone.
During the Swiss Water process, the green coffee is hydrated to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The hydrated green coffee is then introduced to Green Coffee Extract (GCE), a unique solution of concentrated coffee solubles that allows the caffeine to leave the green coffee via osmosis while minimizing the loss of desired flavor compounds. Once the caffeine has been removed the green coffee is re-dried and re-bagged for transport, and the GCE is filtered of its caffeine through proprietary carbon filters and recycled to be used again.
Roasting Notes: The beans appear a bit darker than they really are. Make sure to get at least a little development after “most” of first crack to ensure a tasty cup. Medium and dark roasts are nice and easy roast points to hit with it, a little sheen for a medium, signs of second crack or a hint of oil to mark the darker roasts.
