Absolved Fair Trade Organic Decaf Blend
This coffee is so smooth you wouldn’t know it is decaffeinated! Absolved is a blend of some of the best coffee growing regions of the world, Latin America, Indonesia, Africa, all Fair Trade and certified organic. The coffees were processed using the Swiss Water Process, no chemicals needed. The goal of this blend is to allow Absolved to be used as a satisfying drip coffee, while also having enough complexity to shine as an espresso as well.
Tasting/ Aroma Notes:
Review of Absolved Decaf & Mexico Organic Lagunilla
This coffee was a real treat as it brought back memories of my 5 yrs of employment at Superior Tea & Coffee Co. before I entered the FW seminary and now my 31 years of ministry. It took a couple of brews to realize I was again tasting blend w/o Robusta beans and receiving the fine mild tastes of great blends and the taste of every coffee beans from various regions. I look forward to ordering more blends to try. I did notice that the Decaf green Beans were water processed and not chemically processed as there was no shiny oiliness as in Chemical processed green beans. Thanks for the coffee experience. Rev. Gregory Brown

Guilt-Free Guilty Pleasures
Absolved was our first order from Coffee by Gillespie. We have since added Ethiopia Organic Limu SWP DP Decaf to our subscription (look for our review of it there). First off, Pastor Gillespie's tasting notes are spot on, but they are also subtle shades of flavor throughout the coffee. I do not generally lean toward floral or fruit notes in my coffee, but the Absolved blend and Roast won me over. Instead, these are present but very subtle shades of flavor which might well be adjust with slight shifts in the roasting, nothing like an artificially flavored coffee. In fact, I would describe the fruit more along the lines of the fruit in a fine Pinot Noir rather than, say, a jelly or jam. This brew came lightly roasted without surface oil which is excellent for us as our burr grinder is part of our coffee maker and oily beans require more "love" for the machine to work at its best. The beans and roast combination may stand up to cream if that is your taste, but I am getting more out of the coffee's flavors by drinking it without any additions. All of the coffees are well packaged for shipping and, of course, come in resealable bags for freshness throughout their use. Highly Recommended!
