Blind Assessment:

Deeply sweet, chocolate-toned. Dark chocolate, Brazil nut, gardenia, baked apple, cedar in aroma and cup. Roundly sweet in structure; lean, lightly syrupy body. The gently drying finish is characterized by notes of dark chocolate throughout, supported by gardenia and apple tones in the short and cedar in the long.

Notes:

Decaffeinated at the Descamex plant in Mexico by the “Mountain Water Process” which does not involve use of solvents. Espresso Republic, founded in 2010, specializes in sourcing quality coffees and roasting them in small batches for both retail and wholesale customers.

The Bottom Line: A solid, chocolate-toned decaf with inviting fruit and floral tones.
