ISO good decaf dark roast-whole bean
I've developed a taste for dark-roast coffee but have to switch to decaf, and although decaf coffee beans are widely available, I'm finding it difficult to locate a good decaf DARK roast. Graffeo decaf is good but not nearly dark enough. I'm beginning to think decaf espresso bean might be my best bet. I'm open to any & all advice! Would prefer to buy in person but will resort to mail order if necessary. Thanks!
you might try the Peets DECAF MOCHA JAVA.
(it is the only one in their decaf line that is decaffeinated using water process.)
virtually all of peets coffees are dark roasted.
if you buy 1/2 lb, they will offer you a free cup of brewed coffee. you can specify that your free cup be decaf, and thereby you will probably be getting to sample another one of their decaf offerings.
imho, avoid the peets on westwood blvd for this purchase. to my palate, the brewed coffee served there is not up to snuff, and certainly not up to the quality provided by all the other peets i've ever tried.
