Tasting Notes: Tobacco, Burnt Sugar, Buttery
Roast level: Dark
From the roaster: This coffee is a lovely single origin from Peru that has been roasted in a way to fully caramelize the sugars in order to bring out and highlight the characteristic flavors attributed to those of a dark roast but a bit sweeter and with a more balanced body.
Before arriving to us, caffeine is removed using the Swiss Water Process, using water to migrate the caffeine away from the bean. This is one of the most natural and effective ways to remove caffeine without changing the coffee's natural characteristics or diminishing quality, resulting in an amazing tasting coffee that is 99.9 percent caffeine-free.
I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
