Mexico Organic Los Grapos CO2 Decaf

The dry grounds have a bread-like smell, especially in light roasts, that is like rye or pumpernickel bread with a touch of cinnamon. It's not at all unpleasant, but does probably have to due somewhat with decaffeination process. But it's not chemical or plastic smelling, and notes are organic and sweet. Allusions of brown bread carry over in to the wet aroma, and with a sweetness of unrefined sugar. Like the aromatics, this Mexico decaf cups subtle and sweet. It has a delicate caramel flavor in light roasts that's accompanied by a nice flavor of apple juice. The acidity is moderate and malic, and there's a rye note in the background that comes into focus in the finish. A nice basic cup of decaf, that does best in the City+ Full City roast range.
