My answer was James Gourmet Ethiopian. Marvellous, full of flavour - I'm a happy coffee drinker again. I'm making this with less milk and getting an excellent taste. Very satisfied with James Gourmet,

Decaf on the whole requires a tighter grind. Do t worry about numbers! It is a dark, but It not that dark. From memory Rave roast quite light

22secs seems very short for a 1:2 brew?

Can’t read much about it on the site. I think you mentioned elsewhere it was medium to dark?

 

Anything else you can tell us Dave?

 

It is a medium to darker roast but nothing too drastic.....no roasted on date on the label, just a best before but I always ask when it was roasted and it is always within a few days. HE wholesales a lot and you see it in a lot of local cafes

I like Rave's Brazilian Swiss water Decaf, best decaf I've tried and one of the best coffees I've had too.

 

I couldn’t even get this to taste drinkable so hats off to you sir. Think I must have had mine from a bad batch maybe...

I remember you mentioning this once Deeez.

 

I had a problem with it once though it sorted itself out with a higher dose, higher brew temp and longer pull - something like 1:3

I loved it, I have another kg bag waiting to be opened so I'll post up what that's like once I start on it.

 

I use 14g in 28g out in about 30 seconds.

Put an ¡¡Common decaf on a cupping today and not a single one pinned it as a decaf

"decaf iced americano, warm half-soy-half-oat floated on the top with 3 shakes cinnamon. I'm in a rush by the way. Oh, make sure it's E̵̘̹͍̒͊X̷̣̍͂t̶̙̽̚R̴̡̯̾͜a̸̡͉͝ ̷̨̪̓́H̵̟̳͋̉o̶̖̊̌͐Ț̷͔͑͜͠"

Ordered just now. Will let you know how we get on.

I have found a little description on 'coffee team' web page which describes this decaf as 'Smooth, slightly sweet and fruity'

Is that right @dfk41 ?

That does not sound a million miles away from what my pathetic attempt at describing it would be!

Not a scooby I'm afraid. Was bloody good though

Thanks for the tip off dfk41. I got a kilo delivered 10 days ago and have been using it off and on for a few days now. I'd agree best decaff I've ever had. For me it has a distinct dark treacle/bonfire toffee hint to it, very pleasant. Its good in Aeropress or as espresso or with milk Bonus for me is that for espresso, the grind setting for my usual bean is also the same for this, usually I tend to find decaffs need a finer grind.

Cheers

My pleasure. Not be long before I am back in the saddle myself I hope......the hsiptal shop had a Rijo btc that could make owt......I asked for a Ristretto, then a Machiato and she had both. I settled for a cappuccino with 2 shots, the old wavs volunteer charged me for one.....wnet back to my room, took one sip.......fell asleep and threw it away an hour later!

We really really liked this one too. For me it has some liquorice taste or molasses like and a good body. Very easy to dial too. Will definitely get more. Thanks for the recommendation.

@dfk41 Hope you have a speedy recovery and out of hospital very soon.

 

Thanks for the recommendation I am always searching for new decaf beans, What kind of roast level are these beans?

Just ordered a kg of Tynemouth coffee, looking forward to trying it, Only really started getting back into coffee the last couple of weeks, I couldn't even look at coffee never mind smell or drink in for the first 4 months of my pregnancy. I even sold my coffee gear, have bought a sage duo temp pro to play with for a while until I upgrade, paired with sage smart grinder, will do for a short while.

 

Really cant have anything other than decaf for one being pregnant, and 2 flairing crohns disease.

 

will post back after I have tried it :)

Finally got around to trying these decaf beans from Tynemouth coffee, well all I can say is fantastic decaf, will be buying this one again.

Taste wise the notes flavours I am getting from these beans is chocolate/nutty/hazelnut but would just describe the overall taste note of praline.

Thankyou @dfk41 for the recommendation.
