I have some Paradise Coffee Decaf but won't be opening it until next week. The Paradise Nuevo is excellent so I have high hopes. Will report back once I open it.
Please do. I have enjoyed their regular offerings and would be curious to hear about their decaf.
In my experience, the Heart decafs are among the very few you cannot tell are decafs. Here
is the current one. Note that all decafs stale much more quickly than regular beans, because all decaffeination methods I'm aware of physically compromise the bean, so I would keep them in the freezer as George Howell suggests
(look at issue number 2).

Heart and George Howell were next on my list actually. I am leaning on GH's since it sounds a bit brighter and fruitier like I prefer, and really hard to find in a decaf. I think I will try Heart when they rotate their decaf. Thanks for the confirmation on both of these.
I'm a big fan of PT's and their sister company Bird Rock. I'll have to give them a try. I haven't tried Noble but I'll add them to my list.
Thanks for the suggestions all. Keep 'em coming!
