I originally started drinking Cafe Altura Dark Roast Decaf when I was pregnant, as I wanted to avoid caffeine. I chose this decaf because it’s made with the Swiss Water Method, meaning there are absolutely no harmful chemicals. I continued to drink the Dark Roast while breastfeeding, but after that I started drinking regular coffee again. However, after just a month, I’m switching back to this Dark Roast Decaf. I like the taste, and I feel healthier drinking it.
Decaf, Swiss Water Processed that works great for me since I am caffein sensitive. No Headaches when I miss a day or two!
I am a fan of Cafe Altura Organic dark roast coffee, but have needed to switch to decaf so I ordered the decaf in the dark roast. It has a good flavor, but is not quite the smoothe, strong flavor as the Regular Dark Roast. It’s still a pleasing cup of coffee and maybe it’s just having made the switch to decaf that is my bias!
