Milk chocolate, caramel, and marshmallow flavors with a sweet and toasty finish.
Asterisk is our homage to the Asterisk Café that graced Olympia's Westside decades ago: a local hangout for Evergreen State students and neighborhood friends. For this decaf, we've teamed up with our producers from Colombia's San Sebastian Project and partnered with Colombian Decaf Plant, La Serrania, where they used raw sugar converted to Ethyl Acetate to extract the caffeine from the coffee. San Sebastian coffees are part of the most complex coffee project we have undertaken, a project intended to develop lasting, quality-focused relationships between farmer and roaster. In order to ensure that we are working in tandem with our growers, the project incorporates a staff cupper in Colombia who works with both farmers and roasters. Hundreds of coffee samples, fresh from harvest, are sent to Olympia Coffee to be cupped every week throughout the two growing seasons in La Plata, and multiple farm visits are made each year from the staff of Olympia Coffee. This San Sebastian selection was made specifically for Decaf Asterisk.
Olympia Coffee is an exemplar of the quality-obsessed slow-coffee approach.
Their coffee is unequivocally dope; Big Truck is one of our favorite espresso blends.
Exciting espresso…might be one of the best in the country right now.
It's a great roaster to springboard you ever closer to the perfect cup of java...
