The beans are wet-processed (or washed), where the fruit covering the beans is removed before they are dried, to ensure a clean taste and bright acidity. The beans are put through a water process to remove the caffeine but preserve the natural and full flavors resulting in a soft and sweet taste and a pleasant finish. Nutty and sweet citrus tastes with a nice sweet cream, malt and brown sugar smell. I’m not much of a caffeine free coffee but this holds a great robust body and has a very rich quality. I highly recommend this coffee if you are a decaf lover.
