The farm

After searching for years for a decaffeinated coffee that was genuinely of equal taste to a non-decaf, along came Swiss Water. We regularly cup this alongside caffeinated origins, and it constantly sneaks under the radar. Finally, a decaf that tastes how you would expect the origin, Honduras, to taste!


Using no chemicals, just a green coffee extract and water, this coffee is 99.9% free of caffeine. First, the Green Coffee Extract (GCE) is created by soaking caffeinated beans in water. This includes all of the water-soluble solids that you would find in green coffee, just without the caffeine. Next, the coffee that you are decaffeinating is cleaned and rehydrated, to make sure it’s at the optimal level of hydration for the process - it’s then placed into a massive container, throughout which the GCE is continuously circulated. It takes around 8 to 10 hours for the caffeine level to reach 0.1%, with the caffeine being removed by osmosis - the caffeine is then constantly filtered out of the GCE using a carbon filter system. After all this, the coffee is dried, packed and shipped to us!


This coffee is from a very nearby region to our Organic, Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance Honduras - in fact, it’s only about an hour’s drive between the two co-operatives, and is grown in the Copán Department, by the CAFETALERA Co-Operative. 


The varietals used in this coffee are very typical of the region - both Caturra and Pacas are generally found throughout Central and South America, due to their generally hardiness and low height, allowing for easier picking.

What our team says

 

"Such a show-off coffee, because you'd have no idea that it was decaf! It keeps the complexity of a speciality single origin, and it's an added bonus that it's Organic and Fair-trade too" - Laura
