Bold and straightforwardly earthy with mild sweet and smoky tones. Vaguely reminiscent of our Cosmopolitan Espresso blend we find this a popular, all-around good cup of the strong stuff, without the caffeine buzz. Makes a fine cup of drip coffee as well. The appearance of the decaf coffees is quite dark, with oils appearing on the surface of the bean but we do not actually roast them too heavily. Their flavor profile is more towards medium roast coffees and their dark appearance is a result of the decaffeination process.
