Hi All:

i'm trying to find the best full bodied, richly flavored decaf beans for drip/pour over.

i use an Oxo 8-cup electric which has a "rain showerhead" type of water dispersion part so the water is well dispersed over the entire surface. there is also a timed bloom period as well, so they did think through the various necessary steps for superior results. this particular Oxo is similar to the Technivorms in that water is properly dispersed when dripping, so it's akin to a pour over method. Technivorm has a minimum quantity of 20 oz each brewing, while Oxo's 8-cup model can do my preferred 14 oz size due to a separate, smaller brew basket - see, they really did think through the details! ;)

i've enjoyed Counter Culture's Slow Motion as well as La Colombe's Monte Carlo (slightly burnt tasting). I prefer the Slow Motion slightly over the Monte Carlo due to Monte Carlo's slight burnt taste.

i would really appreciate the good folks here who enjoy decaf to chime in on their all-time decaf bean favorites, in particular ones that are suitable for drip machines/pour over method.

thank you all in advance. look forward to hearing!

thus far, my limited experience only includes two decafs that are very very good:

Slow Motion from Counter Culture
Monte Carlo from La Colombe

someone mentioned that Methodical is also very good - iirc, they are from South Carolina.

Updates:

i find the George Howell "Decaf Jardin ESPRESSO" to be particularly outstanding, beating all other decafs i've tried to date!

the next best might be the Atomic Roasters decaf.

any thoughts? thank you!
