Orleans Coffee Exchange
Decaf French Roast Blend
|Roaster Location:||New Orleans, Louisiana|
|Coffee Origin:||Not Disclosed|
|Review Date:||June 2005|
Blind Assessment: Pungent and smoky throughout the profile, with some suggestions of semi-sweet chocolate, cedar and rosemary. In the cup the mouthfeel is lightly and pleasantly astringent, bracing rather than bitter or heavy.
Notes: No decaffeination method is noted on the package, which probably means this coffee was decaffeinated by the conventional or direct solvent method. Orleans Coffee Exchange is a quality-oriented wholesale roaster that bills itself "New Orleans Premier Micro-Roaster Since 1983." Visit
Who Should Drink It : Those who enjoy dark roasts but avoid bitterness.
