This is good coffee, so I did not give it a low rating. The problem is it is NOT DECAF!
I was a little concerned when the bag arrived and it did not have "decaf" PRINTED anywhere on the bag. It was printed on a little patch of white paper added after the bag was packed.
I really wanted to try it. So I did. Two delicious 12-oz cups later, I was higher than a kite! And I stayed that way ALL DAY! And if I hadn't happened to have some melatonin on hand, I would have been flying all night.
I can't say it didn't feel great. (Can you tell I'm super sensitive to caffeine?) No palpitations or irritability. Just a little on the hypomanic side all day. Veerrrrrrrryyyyyy talkative. Happy.
I think I'll make another cup.
Regular Douwe Egbert coffees were my favorite for many years. Then, several years ago, I switched to an Ethiopian coffee. When I recently decided to try decaf coffee for awhile, I found that the Ethiopian coffee was not available decaffeinated. Remembering my earlier fondness for Douwe Egbert's coffees, I thought their decaf might also be good. It's not terrible, but I probably won't get it again. It has a strong bitter flavor that I don't particularly care for. If you like bitter coffee, go for it. If not, look elsewhere.
Had coffee at Greg Norman's Australian Grille in Myrtle Beach and we all had decaf coffee with dessert after dinner. The coffee was fabulous so we asked the manager which brand they used. It was Douwe Egbert Red Ribbon. Found it on amazon.com and ordered some....it was as good as the restaurant's coffee. Best full bodied decaf I have had in a long long time
