Description About Olympia Coffee Roasting - Decaf AsteriskTo make this milestone decaf, Olympia brought together two of the best on the Colombian coffee scene: the San Sebastian Project and La Serrania Decaf Plant. In the cup, Asterisk is as soft and pillowy as they come, with hints of marshmallow, milk chocolate and caramel. Great stuff in an espresso or filter.

Recommended Brew Methods
A 2:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your espresso shot is recommended. Using a scale to dial in your shots makes the process faster and more accurate. Your espresso grind should be very fine and powdery. Shots should take 30-40 seconds to brew and be thick and syrupy. Don’t stress, adjustments are always needed to get your shots pulling just right!
Start with a 16:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your dosing. You’ll want a medium grind size for drip brewing that’s finer than what you’d use for pourover. Make sure you give the filter basket a shake to evenly distribute the grounds in the filter for best results. Turn on your brewer and it’ll do the rest!
