Blind Assessment:

Dominated by a low-toned but richly intense fruit complex that in the aroma clearly and pleasurably reads as semi-sweet chocolate. In the cup turns toward something less chocolate and more cherry perhaps, with a little pungent lean toward Mediterranean herbs. Full-bodied and deeply dimensioned throughout.

Notes:

No decaffeination method is noted on the package, which probably means this Colombia was decaffeinated by the conventional or direct solvent method. CC’s Coffee is the upscale specialty line of Community Coffee, a distinguished family-owned coffee company founded in 1919. Visit www.cc-coffee.com or call 800-535-9149 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A fine, rich, caffeine-free afterdinner coffee.
