Buy this coffee; this is the best decaf coffee I have ever tasted in my life, hands down. Yes, I know...instant...decaf...the best??!!. It sounds strange, but I am willing to bet my guitar on it and I love my guitar. Anyway, it started way back when I discovered Altura’s organic instant regular coffee. I had been living with drip machines, k-cups, presses, etc., but I was sick of the cleanup and maintenance that come with all the traditional brewing methods just to get a good cup of coffee. I wanted something quick and easy, so I went instant.
The problem before I discovered Café Altura was that I could not find an instant coffee that tasted like "real" coffee, let alone fit my organic lifestyle. One day last year at Earthfare, I found Altura's regular organic instant. I spent the extra money (which to me is not a lot) and I was hooked. It tasked like actual coffee, it's organic, instant, and I can get a nice lift off it :). That being said, the search was on for a decaf equal.
At the time, Altura did not have the decaf instant organic available. I tried other brands and they all tasted like, well, you know, that unpleasant instant taste. Then I heard a rumor - that ended up being true - that Altura was going to release an instant organic decaf and I quickly jumped on it and got some. The rest is history. I love it.
Listen folks, the decaf tastes just like regular coffee and just like the regular instant!! They both do and I can't figure it out....it's organic and an enigma to me. This is how it stands now: I drink the organic regular in the daytime and the organic decaf at night. I primarily drink coffee at home as I work at home, BUT my overall coffee experience is so complete with this coffee that I go to Starbucks just to get hot water in a cup and bring my own Altura Instant. The only thing I have to consider is the time of day. Do I bring regular or decaf?! I suppose that is a good problem to have.
To wrap up this review, try the instant organic decaf coffee (and the regular version if you have not already) and leave these folks at Altura a great review. I need you too because I want to drink this coffee for life. *Note If you are on the fence, consider this your nudge...you can thank me later.
