Topic: decaf blend for press pot (3 msgs / 68 lines)
1) From: Bill Hill
Hello all,
I will occasionally roast some decaf as gifts for a few people.  I
have seen a few mention that they simply stick to the SM's decaf
blend.  I looked into it and noticed that Tom markets it for espresso.
 So who knows how it works for press pots and especially for drip?
Like I said, this is for gifts, so I'm looking for something simple
instead of sifting through decaff offerings.  So if it works OK for
drips (aka my family and friends), I'd get some.  Thanks for the
input!
Bill

I use the African Highland Decaf Blend for all kinds of drip/brewed
coffee...

Someone gifted me with a pound of SM's Donkey decaf blend for  
expresso.  It sat in my stash for a year before I finally roasted  
some to use in my AeroPress.  I roasted to what I hoped was a FC,  
however, after a day it looked pretty shiny.  I left it rest for  
about 5 days and today I ground it and was very pleasantly  
surprised.  It was good enough to drink as my 'main' cup (except I'd  
miss the caffeine of course).  This is a sweet blend and I'd not  
hesitate to roast for gifts.
