Notes: Cocoa / Sultana / Toasted nuts.
Our new Swiss Water de-caf is a decidedly nutty little number from Colombia. The lack of caffeine seems to accentuate the essential nuttiness of the Colombian bean. It also has a beguilingly smooth & honeycombed sweetness that is bright & clear not at all muddy or cloying. It's roasting beautifully, packing plenty of lovely pop-corn aroma in super-abundance long before first crack.
This big delivery of aroma is reflected in the taste, which never disappoints, lashings of peanut butter on a hot buttered crumpet, toasted to perfection! But then that's what you want from a de-caf, surely? Something super-tasty to compensate, as a special reward for missing out on all that crazy caffeine!
