I Can't Believe It's Not Regular!®
Well, today sure was an eye-opening experience... actually it didn't open my eyes at all, that's the greatest part... read on...
I came into work and was soon greeted with a cup of coffee (I'll skip all the order-taking and dish drying that led up to it). I tasted it and my immediate reaction was.... meh... as it cooled I found that it didn't develop acidity very much. It was very rich, with some predominantly chocolate/macadamia nut undertones. It was almost as if it had little overtones. It wasn't too complex nor was it perfectly complex, but it was a nice cup of coffee. I happened to say "hey.... low acidity, pretty good body, nice chocolatey "bass tones"... this sounds like a Mark Prince coffee!"
It wasn't until later that day that Alistair dropped the D-bomb... it was DECAF
DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUUUUN!
Long story short, the ensuing conversation went like this.... "O RLY?" "YA RLY!" "NO WAI!"
I couldn't believe it. Alistair said something about how Swiss Water Process ruins coffee.... it was the Mexican Water that made this one so good. I laughed as hard as a man can laugh at hepatitis B. Turns out this process is much better... at least with this Decaf Tanzania Peaberry. I'm sipping on a cup right now from French Press... at 12:33AM... and I have work and studying for exams tomorrow... OH WELL. I'm a changed man.
