Description

One thing that I'm very proud of is our selection and variety of decaf coffees here at Has Bean. Just because you are caffeine intolerant shouldn't mean you have to put up with sub standard coffee.

This coffee fell on our cupping table and I decided straight away (without the need of an espresso machine) that it was a must have. It has been pre-blended at origin, then brought across and gone through the CO2 method of decaffeination. CO2 is for me the least harmful method to both the environment and the beans.

In the cup this one is very sweet. It is balanced, just as you would expect from a good Brazil. It's surprisingly good in the filter, but has been designed for the espresso machine and that is where it comes alive. Great viscosity in the mouthfeel and a lovely smooth aftertaste.
