Counter Culture Coffee
Organic CO2 Decaf Peru
|Durham, North Carolina
A coffee that rewards deliberation. The sweet nut tones that are the glory of many softer Latin-America coffees run luxuriantly through the profile from aroma to finish, taking on a distinct chocolate cast in the cup. A coffee whose richness reads more as resonance than heaviness.
In this dark-roasted decaf, sweet nut tones run luxuriantly through the profile from aroma to finish, taking on a distinct chocolate cast in the cup. Decaffeinated by a variation of the direct CO2 method. The CO2 replaces the caffeine in the green beans. One of Counter Culture's line of Sanctuary shade-grown coffees, this coffee is produced by a cooperative of peasant farmers.
Who Should Drink It
Those willing to slow down (the absence of caffeine should help) and let the sweetness come to them.
