John_Yossarian Yes! They are relatively fragile than standard beans. They roast differently, with decaf beans darkening faster. That’s why the decaf beans appear darker than the standard beans. It doesn’t alter the taste, though IMO.
The decaf methods used mostly leaves the flavour and taste unaffected except you lose the kick as almost all the caffeine is removed
The Ethyl Acetate / Sugarcane decaf generally may produce a little sweeter cup than the coffee from Swiss Water and CO2.
You are unlikely to regret getting a small bag of sugarcane decaf. It is good with and without milk. If you like coffee with milk, you may not notice a difference. 😊
