  • RayJen Roasters Reserve Decaf Espresso

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: March 2007
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Deep but crisp aroma with impressive complexity: honey, caramel, semi-sweet chocolate, flowers, a hint of cedar. Medium to full body in the small cup with continued caramel and chocolate notes and pronounced, rather sharp cedar. In milk the chocolate rounds and blossoms sweetly, complicated by a continued crisp cedar and the reappearance of a floral shimmer at the top of the profile.

Notes: Coffees in this blend were decaffeinated in Mexico by the Royal Select Water Process method, which does not involve use of solvents. RayJen Coffee is a wholesale and retail specialty roaster with two locations that has won three TOPS awards for coffee retailing excellence from the Specialty Coffee Association of America.

Who Should Drink It: A versatile, rather ruggedly pungent Northwest-style espresso with admirable aromatic complexity.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
