Tasting Notes: Full bodied, dark, and robust.
Our Decaf French Roast begins with a low acid, floral and naturally sweet organic bean. It’s finished with a roast that’s robust, dark and glistening in oil. The roast infuses the bean with subtle notes of smoke and wood while the high-grown origin of the bean prevents bitterness and sour flavors.
Decaffeinated using only Mountain Water.
