Country: Colombia, Ethiopia
Process: Washed and Natural
Decaf Eye of the Tiger is a seasonally evolving espresso that features in-season coffees in a blend or single-origin format. We are pleased to offer this latest iteration, which is a continuation on a theme. Just like last time, this version combines newly arrived coffees from Colombia and Ethiopia. The biggest difference is the Ethiopia coffee in the new version of the blend is a dried-in-the-fruit natural lot instead of a washed process coffee. The smooth fruit-forward Ethiopia natural and balanced new crop Colombia take Decaf Eye of the Tiger in a new direction.
The Colombia is a fully-washed lot grown and processed in the Libano municipality, which is in the Tolima growing region, located about 125 miles west of the capital city Bogota. This coffee provides flavors of chocolate and cedar, giving the blend richness and depth. The Ethiopia component adds flavors of peach-like fruit and flowers, bringing the blend to life. Together these coffees create a pleasing and complex espresso.
We continue to offer this seasonally changing decaffeinated espresso at all of our coffee bars. This is a delicious espresso that just happens to be decaffeinated. Both components are decaffeinated using the water processed method.
