Disclosure: Pull & Pour received coffee samples for this post, however, as always, all opinions are 100% my own.
Good decaf coffee is always tricky to come by. I’ve found some good ones in the past, but it takes some searching. That’s why I was so happy to find Savorista, a coffee company that specializes in decaf and half-caf coffees.
The coffee began with a chocolate and nutty fragrance. The aromatics were a bit flat, but still had some nice richness to them. The flavor was smooth & sweet with notes of dark chocolate, hazelnut, and subtle berries immediately coming to mind as I drank it. The acidity was citrus-toned, though fairly muted (something I’ve found quite common in decaf coffees). The mouthfeel was fairly light, but had a nice smooth, silky quality to it. The coffee was very well-balanced and featured a nice sweetness of chocolate and fruit. The finish was fairly quick, but full of chocolate notes.
The Bottom Line
This Ethiopian decaf tasted quite good and was considerably better than many of the decaf options I’ve had in the past. It still lacked a bit of the complexity and evolution found in many full-caf coffees but is an excellent option for anyone looking for a decaf coffee.
