This is the Decaf Organic Blend brought to you by Equator Coffees & Teas. The Decaf Organic Blend is comprised of certified Organic coffees from Indonesia and Latin America that were decaffeinated using the natural Water Process method. You can't go wrong with this clean and sweet coffee with herbal, nutty top notes complimented by a teak-like earth tone at the base.
I was able to pick up on the "earthy" tones of this coffee. I enjoyed reading the blog about learning how to understand the different notes and flavors of coffee. I was struck by the idea of attaching a memory or thought to the experience. When I first smelled this coffee, I was reminded of my grandmother who was a "Yuban" fan. I can still to this day remember the many cups ( and cans ) of coffee that I shared with her. This is a mellow coffee to me, low acidity. I have very much enjoyed it. I don't think there is going to be a coffee I don't like, I am excited to try what comes my way.
Tasted a little bit bitter even when changed the grind size

Very nice flavor, with pleasant finish. Just a bit lighter roast than we prefer.

Loved this one, great flavor, not bitter or acidic. More like this next time, please!
I feel like it is slightly bitter on back of my tongue with a mild sour after taste. I like it but I think I would prefer more brightness of citrus or fruit. I really like the clean and clear mouth feel and the sweetness is about perfect.
I love "nutty" undertones, but found the herbal flavor to be too intense for me to enjoy this coffee on its own. When my husband tasted it he said he knew I wouldn't like it because it reminded him of the "El Salvadoran Fruit Bomb" coffee that wasn't my fave from our old neighborhood roastery. I do think it's awesome that it's decaffeinated with water instead of chemicals!
I was excited to try this because I remember liking the roaster from my discovery box. It tasted quite weak though.
Too bitter and acidic tasting.
This was a little too weak for our tastes
A little too sweet. I am using a chemex so not sure these beans were ideal for that - too oily?
