Guatemala San Diego Buena Vista SWP Decaf
This decaf'd version of San Diego Buena Vista has a sweetness like brown sugar, with a barley malt syrup and grainy chocolate flavor that in conjunction taste like chocolate stout. Big body, and loads of bittersweetness. Good decaf espresso.

San Diego Buena Vista ("SDBV") has consistently provided us with top quality Acatenango coffee, a sizable all-bourbon separation from their farm on the slopes of the volcano. They continue to plan new bourbon plants from their nursery each year, and this season's harvest topped 200 bags, which allowed us to send a small chunk for decaffeination at the Swiss Water Decaffeination plant in Vancouver, Canada. We've worked with Swiss to process good tasting regular coffees into good tasting decafs for several years now, and are once again awed by the similarly flavored cup between this decaf and non-decaf pair. Sweetness is central to the SDBV bourbon cup, and remains an integral part of this coffee's profile post-decaffeination.
