Full City roast has balanced acidity and sweetness. Notes of demurara sugar, dried apricot and peach, and macadamia nut dominate at Full City roast. Good SO espresso, and a great "backdrop" coffee for a blend. City+ to Full City+.
Decaf Brazil is a mild cup, and one of its best uses is for decaf blends (espresso, or to add body to darker roast drip-brewed decaf mix). But it can offer an interesting straight roast if you target the right roast level. It adds body and is a good "backdrop" in terms of roast taste. A backdrop coffee fills out the background of the cup and does not interfere with your "highlight" coffees, the ones that are going to be the exclamation point of your cup character. If you like a very soft espresso cup, you will enjoy this Brazil as a straight decaf espresso. WP means Water Process decaf, a direct contact method that uses water filtration to separate the caffeine from the coffee without using chemical solvents.
This Brazil decaf cups nicely, showcasing typical Brazil notes of nut skin with well balanced acidity and dried fruit sweetness. Roasting this coffee to FC brings out bittersweet cocoa and roasted peanuts in the dry aroma. More dark chocolate and sweeter nuts are released at infusion, culminating in raw almond, toasted grain, and cocoa nibs on the break. This is a surprisingly sweet cup, with a profile consisting of demurara sugar sweetness, dried apricot and peach, and macadamia nut. There is a slight dryness up front, but not an unpleasant one. More like that of black tea. This is a really nice cup on its own and would also make a great backdrop to an espresso blend.
