I am about to enter into the world of roasting my own coffee. Have benefit of a local roaster who has shared knowledge. Not that it needs certification but among other things, he apprenticed at Gaggia in Italy for 2 1/2 years. Personally, am now fairly proficient at producing a very nice espresso shot from a excellent grind.

Additionally, wanted to ask of this group... am looking for recommendations for decaf beans that would produce a reasonable espresso blend. I know, decaf... but that is what I am aspiring towards and am very good at it now, but want to complete the circle by roasting decaf beans as well.

Recommendations anyone?

As an fyi, I have read many threads and searched for keywords but the most recent discussion of 'decaf' and 'espresso' is 7 years old I believe, and did not discuss coffee types.... am looking for any ideas on coffee beans to grind, so I can begin the journey into roasting and aspire to to a decaf espresso blend.

Thoroughly enjoy the forum discussions here. Very rich with info and enthusiasm....

We use the same beans in our decaf espresso blend as out regular just use the swiss water decaf version.

FYI: decaf espresso is like a hooker that only wants to cuddle!!!!!
