PJ's Coffee & Tea
Decaffeinated Costa Rican
|Roaster Location:||New Orleans, Louisiana|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||August 1997|
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.
