Blend Description:

This blend is intended to be used in several ways. As an all-decaf espresso blend, I wanted it to work well under a wide variety of roasting conditions, in terms of both lighter Northern Italian type espresso roasts (the equivalent of a Full City to Vienna Roast) and the darker Southern Italian type roast (roasted to a French roast). I also wanted a good espresso from both air and drum roasters, and I wanted good crema. This is a lot to ask from a decaf, but I think this blend works very well. While origin tastes are muted in decafs, I think the bittersweet roast tastes from this blend are very good. My second focus was having the blend not have too much character so that it could be used as a base blend for a "low-caf" espresso. This means it should work well as 50-75% of your blend, where you add other caffeinated coffees to give more aromatics and flavor.
