Coffee Review - Jackie Oh Organic Decaf from Doma Coffee
  • Doma Coffee Roasting

    Coeur D'Alene, Idaho
  • Jackie Oh Organic Decaf

Roast: Dark Review Date: July 2010
Origin: Americas; Indonesia Price: $15.25/16 oz.

Blind Assessment: Softly roasty aroma with hints of aromatic wood and molasses. Smooth, balanced and chocolaty in the cup with complications of orange and fresh-cut wood. Simplifies in the finish with the wood note lingering.

Notes: This coffee was certified organically grown and decaffeinated by the "Swiss Water Process" method, which does not involve use of solvents. Although a logo indicating "100% Fair Trade" appears on the bag, the absence of the trademarked Fair Trade seal indicates this coffee is not certified by TransFair USA, the sole American certifier for the Fair Trade Labeling Organizations International (FLO). Doma is, however, affiliated with the buyers' group Cooperative Coffees as well as the Fair Trade Federation, a membership (rather than certifying) organization devoted to "providing fair wages and good employment opportunities to economically disadvantaged artisans and farmers worldwide." Doma Coffee Roasting specializes in organic and Fair-Trade certified coffees and takes pride in a rigorous program of recycling and environmentally responsible business practices. The Doma slogan is "Coffee/Culture/Meaning." Visit or call 208-773-0066 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Gentle, chocolaty dark-roast decaf with organic credentials.
