The Decaf Monk Blend was carefully roasted for you by 1000 Faces Coffee. Decaf Monk is 1000 Face's House decaf, which is Swiss Water processed, shade grown and Organic certified. The resulting cup is as fantastically rich as a regular coffee, with notes of dark chocolate and caramel with a creamy, full body.
The beans had the smell I usually find in coffee using chemical decaf process. I could not find information about the decaf process, so I could not confirm. The taste is like a coffee that went bad or too old. Not a fan.
I really like the chocolate and caramel notes in this blend. I miss the nutty flavor. Still a very smooth cup of decaf. This is not as rich or dark as I would like but still very enjoyable medium roast.
This gets 4 stars from the decaf drinker in the family. I quote, "it's good."
