Olympia Coffee Roasting
Peru La Florida Decaf Fair-Trade
|Roaster Location:||Olympia, Washington|
|Review Date:||March 2008|
Blind Assessment: Very sweet-toned aroma, simple but balanced, with hints of orange and cedar. Continues its quiet way in the cup, gently and sweetly acidy with continued hints of orange and cedar. Lean but silky in mouthfeel. Rich, long finish with only a hint of astringency.
Notes: This coffee was decaffeinated by the "Mountain Water" process, which does not involve use of a solvent. Olympia Coffee Roasters is a small-batch wholesale and one-location-retail roasting company with a youthful, no-nonsense style and a commitment to quality. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A classic Peru for caffeine-avoiders: delicate, simple, sweetly pleasing.
