Decaffeinated Ethiopian Natural SWP

(1 customer review)

$6.75

Fruit forward with a bit of tea like chocolaty factor, a little hint of a floral tone. Very cool cup profile and close to the caffeinated profile mark. Low acidity with some decent body – a little jammy if you hit the roast on the head.

Description

A very tasty and fresh natural processed Ethiopian decaf. SWP (Swiss Water Processed) is a competitor to MWP (Mountain Water Processed) – both are non solvent based decaf methods. SWP tends to be a little trickier to roast for most of our customers but the tastes can be quite fantastic.

The natural processing leaves a very fruit forward cup profile than shoots right through the decaf processing. A very cool lighter and sweeter toned cup.

Processed from premium lots of caffeinated coffee. After selection, the green coffee is pre-soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The beans are then introduced to a solution concentrated with coffee solubles that extract the caffeine without extracting the coffee’s particular flavor.

Tasting Notes: Fruit forward with a bit of tea like chocolaty factor, a little hint of a floral tone. Very cool cup profile and close to the caffeinated profile mark. Low acidity with some decent body – a little jammy if you hit the roast on the head.

Roasting Notes: A nice medium roast decaf, shoot for about half way between first crack and second crack. Does work a bit lighter or darker but too light and you can taste too much of the decaf processing, too dark and you lose that awesome fruit forward tone. SWP coffees tend to stop darkening at about a medium roast then can suddenly appear very oily. Watch the sheen to oil on the surface to mark the roast points.

    I am very pleasantly surprised. I hesitated buying decaf Ethiopian because I couldn’t control the roast but this lot roasts nice and even and by setting it on low for the first few minutes, and stretching it just a bit I can even keep it reasonably light without tasting the decaf processing. I use it for espresso (blend and by itself) and am impressed by how well it draws; deep, concentrated and nice crema. Taste is more muted than caffeinated Ethiopian but I think a lot of decaf naysayers would be happy to sip a shot or cappuccino of this after a nice dinner and not be up all night.
