I just had to leave this here... I feel like I have tried every coffee under the sun. I decided because I intermittent fast that I was going on a hunt for a good decaf so I had a little something to look forward to at night. I battle insomnia so I know I needed a decaf. Lately I got a new breville machine and have come to love americano's as I can tast the true notes of coffee and have tried many coffee brands of various sorts. I did another google search and it led me to Gripps. Reading up on the concept of how they roast the coffee and have it shipped out in a timely manner so the customer can enjoy the full benifits of the taste due to its freshness had me sold and I had to try. Now every night I look forward that one cup of coffee. It truly is the best brand thus far on the market and the notes are so rich, sweet and pronounced. I kid you not when I say BEST COFFEE EVER!!!
I find it sometimes difficult to source quality, decaf coffee, esp. not solvent-extracted versions, so I was thrilled to find this dark roast from Gripps. From the moment the seal is broken, the rich, deep, full-body aromas portends the cup this coffee will make. I typically brew my coffee in a French press @ 60g/L, but I have also used these beans in a Moka pot and an espresso maker, all of which produce a rich, full-bodied, dark, cup of coffee with a silky mouthfeel, and low/no smoky/bitter/ashy notes.
It has quickly become one of my favorite dark roast, Swiss water processed decafs. I look forward to Gripps adding back a light/medium roast decaf in the future.
