Decaf Profiles

 Roasting Guidance We suggest using medium heat application, adjusting to hit first crack at longer than average timing, and ending the roast at a dark temperature.
Flavor Profile This roast will produce coffee that is smooth and robust. The coffee will be heavier bodied, with low acidity, some roast character.
Altering the Roast For more body and roast character, maintain a higher heat application through second crack for and even darker roast. For more acidity, reach first crack more quickly and end the roast at a lighter temperature with less development.
Blend and Brew These coffees are great for a dark roast house decaf. Brew using a french press for maximum body.
These tests were completed using a Diedrich IR-5 roaster. We considered 7:30 “Quick” to 1st Crack and 9:00 “slow. ”Short” roasts are 9:00 and under, “Long” roasts are 12:00 and above.
