Decaffeinated Costa Rican by PJ's Coffee & Tea Review |

  • Decaffeinated Costa Rican

Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: August 1997
Origin: Costa Rica Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The roast overwhelms the coffee here. The cup is carbon-toned and rather thin-bodied, with little nuance or dimension. Pleasant and without offense, but this Costa Rica's virtues and surprises apparently were left behind in the decaffeination vat and roasting smoke.

Notes: Pleasant and without offense, the roast overwhelms the coffee. Decaffeinated by the Swiss Water Process (TM)

Who Should Drink It: Decaffeination is more German obsession than French, but a health-conscious Francophile who fondly remembers the charred-tasting coffee in provincial cafes in northern France might enjoy 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.
