While we lack information on the exact origin of this decaf, this is a more than ample representation of how origin flavor profiles can be preserved during the decaffeination process. WP means Water Process decaf, a direct contact method that uses water filtration to separate the caffeine from the coffee without using chemical solvents. And the retention of those chemical solvents is exactly what has allowed this particular offering to retain "Colombian" flavor attributes while shedding nearly all of its caffeinated compound.
We found this coffee to be fairly balanced at a FC roast level. The dry fragrance hinted at Mexican hot chocolate, graham cracker, and mulling spice. Spiced chocolate continues to permeate in the break, and is rounded out by cinnamon and canned pumpkin. There is definitely sweetness to be found in this cup, but it is mild, like a lightly sweetened black tea. Cocoa, toasted nut, and bergamont are all characteristics of this coffee. While this Colombia decaf is on the "mellow" side of the acidity spectrum, the mild sweetness and inherent Colombia flavor profile all add up to a really nice decaf coffee.
