Decaf (Swiss Water Process)
Mogiana Region, São Paulo & Minas Gerais
This is our classic decaf drip. A field blend of coffees from Brazil that have been decaffeinated using the Swiss Water Process. Expect this coffee to have a nutty caramel sweetness with balanced acidity.
Swiss Water Process
Swiss Water processed green coffee is soaked in proprietary Green Coffee Extract (“GCE”) containing all the water-soluble compounds found in coffee, except for the caffeine. The solution is heated so the coffee beans swell, and become porous. The caffeine molecules move out of the swelled coffee and into the GCE through osmosis, while the volatile compounds that affect things like flavor and aroma are left in place. The process is repeated until the coffee is 99.9% caffeine free. The Swiss Water method uses no chemicals whatsoever, whereas many other decaffeination methods employ the use of chemical solvents like methylene chloride.
