Not all coffee is created equal!

Well unforumately the grinders decaf is well below average. Finding a good coffee can be hard, but finding a good decaf is just about imposible!
The grinders is the only whole decaf bean sold at Cowes Coles. Everything about the purchase was promicing. Good crema, length of pour about right. The taste was what let things down. It slightly flavours the milk.

The beans once dried were extremely dry. Other good decaf grounds had a slightly oily texture.
The pack has an obscured use by date. But it would be more useful a date when the beans were roasted.

I struggle to find good decaf too! Caffeine sensitive people are a neglected minority.
