Delicious Decaffeinated Coffee
The European process (EP) uses a chemical solution to remove caffeine from hot water in which the beans have been soaked. That solution - caffeine and chemical having been removed- - is then reabsorbed by the beans. The Swiss Water Process (SWP) is similar but uses an activated charcoal filtration system to remove the caffeine from the water. Both methods result in tasty coffee that has lost little of its innate quality.
Decaffeinated Coffee Selections
All of our European Process (EP) coffees use the Methyl Chloride method of decaffeination. Swiss Water Process (SWP) is a method of decaffeinating coffee beans developed by the Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee Company.
Decaf. Colombia EP/SWP
One of the finest decaffeinated coffees in the world. The careful processing produces a cup that retains the smooth, full-bodied flavor the Colombians are known for, while keeping it very low in caffeine content.
Decaf. Sumatra EP/SWP
Also available in Organic Fair Trade. Deeply rich in earthy flavor, this decaf is also quite low in acid. Only a Sumatran could deliver flavor and body like this in a decaffeinated coffee. The full-body, earthy aroma and mellow acidity make this a standout.
