Cup profile and tasting notes
Mellow roundedness with bright fruit notes and a medium-ish finish – with a crema that holds up surprisingly well for a full decaf. Great with milk.

Salvation - our decaf blend features three great decaffeinated coffees.
This blend is down on the caffeine, but not on flavour using El Salvador Santa Adelaida Co2 Decaf, Colombia Condor Cerro Bravo Co2 Decaf and Cerrado Co2 Decaf from Brazil. Brewed correctly you will be rewarded - just remember shot sizes are a tad smaller for decaf espresso - so stop the shot just as its consistency becomes loose and/or the colour starts to blonde.
A drawback of decaffeination in espresso extraction is the limited production of crema, but surprisingly this blend provides a reasonable production - but don’t expect a huge furling crema – although we find flavour and mouthfeel stay relatively intact.
