PJ's Coffee & Tea

Decaffeinated Costa Rican

Location: New Orleans, Louisiana

Origin:

Roast: Very Dark

Est. Price:

Review Date: August 1997

Agtron: 27/39

Aroma: 5

Acidity: 4

Body: 5

Flavor: 4

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.
