  • Capricorn Blend Decaffeinated

Roast: NA Review Date: July 2002
Origin: Sumatra, Guatemala, Colombia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Dark roast in the classic bittersweet style, complicated by delicate floral, dry fruit and pipe tobacco notes. A distracting astringency dampens an otherwise balanced, complex dark-roast cup.

Notes: The coffees making up this blend were decaffeinated by the conventional or direct solvent method. Capricorn Coffees, founded in 1963, is one of the San Francisco Bay Area's oldest specialty roasting companies. Visit or call 800-541-0758 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: An agreeable dark roast for caffeine-avoiders, particularly those who take their coffee with milk, which will soften the profile and make it to fatten and blossom.


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.
