  • Decaf Sumatra

Roast: NA Review Date: February 1999
Origin: Sumatra Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Another decaf-ravaged Sumatra: Here the aroma is as subdued as the cup. A touch of carbon from the roast and a bit of sweet tobacco from the Sumatra, but not much else: clean, low-toned, empty.

Notes: A decaf-ravaged Sumatra. The aroma and the cup are subdued, clean, low-toned. Only a touch of carbon from the roast and a bit of sweet tobacco from the Sumatra. No decaffeination process is indicated, but almost certainly decaffeinated by the European or conventional method, which involves the use of a solvent.

Who Should Drink It: I was going to say people stuck in traffic who find themselves in front of a Starbucks store and don't want to make things worse by consuming caffeine. But, in fact, if I were in a Starbucks store looking for a decaf I'd try anything on the menu before putting a dollar down on this one.

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.
