I’ve always had a problem with decaf Colombians - no matter where I’ve got them from. All of them always had a little decaf aftertaste that I can’t describe.

 

Am fine with full caf Colombians so I know it’s not me.

 

Decaf African in the other hand I can really get some acidity and flavours out - whether it’s espresso or aeropress.

 

Anyone had the same problem?

 

Are the Colombians recommended on here comparable to a non decaf? I don’t mean like for like but that general Colombian taste profile.

Not sure what "Colombian taste profile is", but the Crankhouse La Plata is the least decaf tasting decaf I have tried for drip, I have enjoyed other Colombian EA decafs too, that will likely work better as French press & espresso (most seem to be on the darker side). I've had non-decaf beans I enjoyed less than these.

 

As for a decaf that can't be identified as decaf? It's a lot to ask?

Aye, it’s a tall ask - though North Star huye mountain certainly fits that description [emoji39]

Very recently tried Rave Swiss Water Decaf, Machina Excelso Decaf (Also Swiss Water), and Mexican Decaf from Salford Roasters. Liked all. Mostly was consumed as not very long black or in cafetiere.

What brew ratio did you use for the Rave Swiss Water Decaf? I feel like I've tried it so many different ways but can't get anything approaching nice, even with milk or cream. Seems to lack any sweetness at all. Might try it in a cafetiere and see what it's like.
