Roast Master Hennings Comments:
Death to “death to decaf” - seriously - this is a lovely coffee. I am still craving the kick of caffeine but for anyone who has issues with it this one leaves nothing to be desired. My friend Steve (who has a severe caffeine intolerance even called it “good - tastes like real coffee”. )
