    I've been drinking this Panther Decaf for the past week. Trade listed this as Medium roast coffee, but it's definitely a dark roast with a significant oily sheen on the beans, and it drinks as such. Although I was looking for a medium roast decaf espresso, I'm grading this as a very good dark roast decaf.

    It has a nice mouthfeel I'd describe as smooth and almost glycerine at the front of the palate. Dark chocolate and smoky notes with nuttiness. Crema is fluffy and persistent. Overall, the coffee has excellent mouthfeel. This roast is slightly bittersweet, with some plum acidity. I do think it could use a bit more fruitiness/brightness.

    Cupping Method:I ordered the bag from Trade Coffee, and have been drinking it as espresso and hot Americanos to try to space out caffeine.

    Creamy, deep notes, sometimes with a toasted peppery taste but a fruit-like finish. Tasty, lingers in a nice way!

    This one was a pleasant surprise. It is darker than I usually drink, so I wasnt expecting to love it, but I did. It had a wonderful complexity and was thoroughly enjoyable.

    This roast leans dark, and is much more flavorful than the name "mountain water" would imply. Flavor profile features notes of pecan with an intriguing spiciness.

More Details

Roast Level: Medium Dark
Medium-dark or Vienna roast coffee features a deeper, richer flavor profile due to its longer roasting time. When selecting a Vienna roast, look for a lower acidity, bolder body, and flavors with dark chocolate, caramel, toasted nut notes, and mild smokiness.
Bean Source Country: Brazil
Brazil, the world's largest coffee producer, has traditionally been known for its vast output of commodity-grade coffee, including a significant volume of Robusta beans. However, in recent years, the country has made a concerted effort to enhance the quality of its microlots, aiming to solidify its reputation within the specialty coffee sector including greater cultivation of higher-quality Arabica. These initiatives have contributed to developing coffee microlots with distinct flavor profiles, with Brazilian coffee notably known for rich notes of chocolate, nuts, and fruit.
Bean Source Region: Minas Gerais
Brazil's shift from commodity production to specialty grade Arabica has resulted in the Minas Gerais region producing coffee renowned for its outstanding quality and rich flavors. The state's unique combination of high altitude, fertile soil, and favorable climate provides ideal growing conditions for coffee, resulting in beans with a well-balanced profile characterized by a pleasant aroma, mild acidity, and a smooth, full-bodied taste.
Decaf
Decaffeinated coffee has undergone a process to remove most of the caffeine content while preserving its flavor and aroma. There are three primary decaffeination methods. The solvent-based method involves soaking coffee beans in water to dissolve the caffeine, followed by adding a solvent, such as methylene chloride or ethyl acetate, to bind to the caffeine molecules selectively. The Swiss Water Process (SWP) is a chemical-free method that relies on the principles of solubility and osmosis. Finally, the carbon dioxide method involves using supercritical carbon dioxide to extract caffeine from the coffee beans. Decaf coffee typically retains most of the flavor and aroma of regular coffee but with a significantly reduced caffeine content (around 2-3%).
