Topic: What decaf coffee to use for espresso (when she likes Peets decaf sumatra)? (4 msgs / 98 lines)
1) From: brian lerner
This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
My wife loves the body and heartiness in her Peet's decaf sumatra blend
which she uses for cappucino.  I bought the SM's Decaf Espresso Donkey Blend
and she feels it doesn't have as rich a flavor as her Peet's coffee.  I have
tried roasting it until after the second crack and also after just one
crack.  She still feels the flavor is not as hearty as the Peets decaf
sumatra.  Do I want to change the time I am roasting in some way? Or do I
want to try different beans?   I notice that SM has a number of decaf green
beans.  Would you recommend any specific beans  that I could try to make her
comfortable?

Brian,
I am not familiar with Peet's coffee.
The Sumatra Tapanuli WP Decaf is excellent.  I roasted it for a
customer (my wife's best friend) and she said that it was her favorite
decaf thus far.  I tried it myself and it was full flavored with great
body.
You may also wish to try the Indonesian Komodo Blend.
Hope this helps ...
Eddie

I like my coffee brewed stronger than most.
I have gotten some of the best coffee shop press cups ever from Peet's on
Sheridan Blvd in Arvada, CO across from the Nobleman's Barn bookstore. I wa=

specific that I abhor dishwater coffee. The barista came across.
What I do, and what they do are probably the same thing. I don't brew a pot
of coffee with 25g of grounds and wonder. I know it would taste weakfish.
I brew steins of coffee with 25g of beans ground 10s earlier, with 18oz 202=

F water.
What don't you understand about brewing stronger? "...she feels it doesn't
have as rich a flavor as her Peet's coffee;" and "...feels the flavor is no=
t
as hearty as the Peets decaf sumatra."
I'm not composing a spot for Peet's, I just read what was said.

Good coffee brewed weak is just good weak coffee. Commercial Dreck is
"other"- bad coffee brewed poorly.

I second Ed's suggestion: Sumatra Tapanuli WP Decaf.  I'm drinking it right
now.
