I roast for my son who does espresso.

So far his favourite is Sweet Maria's Monkey Blend, roasted FC++ or Vienna.

Now he wants decaf.  My next order was going to be 7 lb Monkey Blend and 5 lb Donkey Blend.

However, is there a better choice from Sweet Maria's, either as a blend or a SO bean, for decaf?

I don't know which of there's is best for decaf espresso but I do drink a lot of the Donkey and think it's quite good.
Often I'll but in one or two other decafs that I have (so its 50-75% Donkey and 25-50% other).

For SO I think the Americas are often not a good choice, but I'm not expert on these topics.
I've liked some African decafs as SO espresso.
