Roasting: We like this coffee right at Full City (Medium). It's pretty versatile and roasts evenly so you can experiment with the roast levels if you like. The flavor changes--more sweetness in lighter roasts and chocolate tones pick up and become increasingly darker chocolate as your roast progresses.
Recommendation: For people who enjoy a mild, smooth sweet cup of coffee without aggressive edginess or distracting complexity.
Reminder: This is raw coffee. You have to roast it before brewing.
Our Review: "This offering is curated from lots that the Royal team has selected based on cup profile, physical preparation, and potential to express excellently once decaffeinated. During the water process, the green coffee is pre-soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The hydrated green coffee is then introduced to a unique solution of concentrated coffee solubles that draw out the caffeine while minimizing the loss of flavor compounds. Once the caffeine has been removed the green coffee is re-dried and re-bagged for transport, and the extract solution is filtered of its caffeine and recycled to be used again." - Royal Coffee
