I got this as a little Easter gift for me grandma who can't have caffeine due to heart issues. She said it smelled wonderful! I've gotten her Royal Rum Pecan in the past, but she was enthused to try a non-flavored one this time.
Surprisingly good. Doesn't have quite the character as the decaf Arabica did but there's enough there for a good cup of joe. I even use it for espresso and it works well with a decent amount of crema.
When I had to begin to forego cream, I wanted a high quality coffee that would taste good black. This coffee certainly does! No bitterness, very smooth and flavorful. I'm hooked! And glad to support the monks!
I never in a million years ever thought I would say that about decaf coffee, but it's true! I first tried this last year when my doctor asked me to eliminate caffeine for a couple months following heart surgery. It turned out to be a fantastic choice, and I learned that decaf can actually be quite nice! Now I drink it to relax in the late afternoon or early evening. It's great to come home and unwind with a cup of this great coffee!
Good decaf coffee is hard to find. Even harder to find is one that is not over-roasted to hide the flaws. The monks have done a good job with this product and I am enjoying my afternoon coffee these days and still able to sleep!
