Decaf, Brazil - Natural Water Process Coffee
Decaf Brazil - Great Tasting Natural Mountain Water Process Whole Bean Coffee
This is a decaf that is really worth drinking! Yeah I said it... I sampled a lot of decafs to try to find one worthy RIVET and this one is it. It's not decaffeinated with chemicals like most. It uses a process called Mountain Water Process (MWP) that uses pure water to flush the caffeine out of the bean and is just a delightful cup of coffee in the evening after dinner. I like most coffee snobs would turn my nose up at even the mention of decaf but this one changed my mind.

Easily one of the best decaf coffees I've ever had. You cannot tell it's decaf. Plenty of interesting notes with an incredibly smooth finish. Can't wait to get more.
Decaf is *usually* a word that makes me revolt. Usually, one must carefully make the decision to either sacrifice the quality of their coffee profile or deal with the consequences of overdosing on caffeine for the day. This coffee produced by way of MWP decaffeination (see above for description) ameliorates the internal tension of having to sacrifice either sleep or flavor. This is simply a wonderful coffee that happens to have less caffeine.
Love it. I bought 5 pounds, drink it daily.
