This water-processed decaf is bold and rich with very little acidity. Notes of dried fruit pop at the beginning of the cup, providing just a touch of acidity. Roasted hazelnut hits your palate in the middle of the cup and the finish is sweet and highlighted by honey notes. This decaf is bold and has a great flavor that rivals coffees with full caffeine.
Roast Color: Dark
Cupping Notes: Honey, Roasted Hazelnut, Dried Fruit
Decaffeination Method: Water Processed
Story: Royal Select Water Decaf coffee is sourced from lots that our team has selected based on cupping evaluations. The green coffee is soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The beans are then introduced to a solution concentrated with coffee solubles that extract the caffeine without extracting the coffee’s particular flavor.
I was looking for a source for decaf beans and found McLaughlin. I think I've tried all of them so far, and this one is one of my favorites.
when we got our espresso machine in 2020, i tried a bunch of coffees out. this was the best by far! dark and delicious. i like a more chocolatey profile, less acidic and this is perfect for me. I also love it as a french press!
