OMG! We have lamented that decaf drinkers so often get left aside in that most decafs barely qualify as specialty coffee. Many are undrinkable.
Our decaf policy is that it has to be so good that those who drink it would never pick it as a decaf. Problem is that the really good stuff NEVER undergoes decaffeination.
Finally, our prayers answered. Herewith, a really, really, high quality, very special Organic Ethiopia Yirgacheffe microlot. This is heirloom coffee.
Decaf beans rarely cup at 80 points. They don’t even qualify as specialty coffee. This one is streets ahead and cruised in at 84 points. This just doesn’t happen! Where else in Australia can you get this? Nowhere.
In the cup, there is dried banana and strawberry along with tropical acidity. Creamy, silky, rich body carries through to a sweet, fruity and chocolatey finish.
Drink as you choose from immediately after roast. We’re taking some home as well. It’s a cracker.
The great thing with decaf our way is that you get to power order: lighter and fruity or medium and balanced and always super fresh. This one is way too good to roast dark.
