A very fresh and tasty batch of Decaf! MWP is Mountain Water Processed, a very wholesome non-solvent based decaf method.
Royal Select Decafs are selected from premium lots, based on cup profile, physical preparation, and potential to express excellently once decaffeinated. During the water process, the green coffee is pre-soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The hydrated green coffee is then introduced to a unique solution of concentrated coffee solubles that draw out the caffeine while minimizing the loss of flavor compounds. Once the caffeine has been removed the green coffee is re-dried and re-bagged for transport, and the extract solution is filtered of its caffeine and recycled to be used again.
Tasting Notes: The cup profile is mostly down the malty side but these beans will have some nice floral aromatics that provide some good depth of flavor. Best from medium to dark roasts, hints of a nutty and malty undertones can be found A cup we are more than willing to drink all day. Dark roasts lose the smoother cup but really accentuate the dark malt tone. Guatemalans almost always hold dark roasts nicely for adding a little sweet malty note to the smoky and roasty tones is a tasty mix.
Roasting Notes: A nice easy to roast decaf. Err a little darker than lighter and you will always have a tasty cup. A quicker roasts leaves it a little thinner but sweeter and crisper, a slow roast will build body and creamy factor but will lose a little sweetness.
