This coffee from Red El Carmen association in Colombia stood out during blind tastings against other caffeinated samples. When asked “Which is the decaf on this table?”, most people gave the wrong answer. We don’t blame them. This is one of the cleanest decafs we’ve tried to date, with no residual off-flavours related to the decaffeination process. In the cup you’ll find notes of dark chocolate and biscuit with the sweetness of bananas and the acidity of orange zest. The creamy body makes for a great espresso, but we are more than happy to say this coffee can also be enjoyed as filter.
