Celebes Torja Kalosi CO2 Decaf


Bean name Celebes Torja Kalosi CO2 Decaf
Country Indonesia
Other info CO2 Decaf


Kalosi is a very important bean to us at Has Bean, as its a component of our espresso blend and its a great single origin. The problem finding good kalosi is that Indonesia is one of the world's biggest coffee producing nations - ranked fourth behind Brazil, Colombia and Vietnam, but much of it poor grade Arabica or even worse Robusta. So it's more important than normal to keep checking the quality. We received some pre shipping samples of this one a while back and then once they arrived and it blew me away.

Typically in the cup you normally get earth tones and can be quite a dirty cup. There are these classic tastes still there but the awesome preparation of the green means it's not quite as harsh and not quite as full on as I've found in the past. This coffee still has a real kick that hard to find anywhere else still has the caffeine boot but now with this new clarity it has caramel and rich syrupy tones. Your decaf should be as good as your normal coffee, this is.
