“ Type: Decaffeinated Coffee „
I'm not a fan of decaf coffee due to the taste, the quality and I don't understand why you would want decaf:), coffee is a good stimulant and that's what it means to me!
I did try this at a friends house and it smelt just like their original Colombian coffee although it didn't taste exactly the same, more dull, woody and earthy on the old taste buds this is quite possibly the best decaf I have ever tried.
This is just as easy to buy from Whittards as you would expect.
They sell this as
FRESHLY GROUND ON THE PREMISES
I think this is amazing that you can get decaf beans in a choice of sizes.
This is a medium roast and you really don't want to burn the coffee grounds as its is the worst taste of bitterness ever!
One other slight negative is this really does not take milk well at all or cream.
It goes a horrible grey colour and this can be very off-putting.
I would say drinking this black with a teaspoon of sugar was better.
The website says this is a full-bodied drink, but that is the one thing it really lacked for me, I really enjoy the full flavour and was disappointed by that aspect.
However for those wanting a change, to wean themselves off coffee or try something different this is excellent and I can't see where you would get better.
The prices vary for freshly ground and they also have bulk buys on some of the jars of instant coffee.
Earlier this year we spent a week in Edinburgh and during our stay, on one day we were served a really pleasant cup of coffee from a cafeteria. At that time we did not have a cafeteria, but on our return we decided to buy one and since then our search has been on for a decent coffee to use in it. (We really wished that we had asked at the coffee shop which coffee they used). We must have now tried over a dozen different coffees and at last we have found one that really does suit our taste buds. Obviously the appeal of different coffees is a personal taste, but we like to have one that has that really has a good coffee aroma, without being too strong and does not leave you with the “buzz” that a lot of strong coffees give you. A lot of the mild coffees that we tried just did not have sufficient taste to them unless you used a large amount of coffee, so we decided to try medium strength coffees. In order to get rid of the “buzz” we opted for decaffeinated coffee. The best one that we have found so far is the Whittard Decaffeinated Colombian Coffee. It has a terrific aroma and makes an excellent cup of coffee without having to use large amounts of coffee, so it is not too strong, but has a full taste. There is no after taste or caffeine “buzz” from this very pleasant drink and it is the only one that we have repeatedly bought since having our cafeteria. Ground coffee works out more expensive than instant coffee, but when you find a bean that really suits your own personal taste it is well worth the extra cost for a really decent cup of coffee. As with all fresh coffees it is important to remember to reseal the bag tightly after every time it is used, or keep the coffee in an airtight container. This will preserve the full taste and aroma of the coffee. We try to use the coffee within 2 – 3 weeks as this is when it is at its best. This is definitely a coffee I can r
ecommend for a great drink anytime.
A light French roast gives this decaffeinated Colombian good strength and enough character to be noticed. Pleasantly full-bodied, without becoming too dark and overpowering.
