Water® Process is a method to decaffeinate selected speciality coffee that is 100% chemical free using an internally developed process.
Mountain Water Process is a method of indirect decaffeination which uses pure water from Pico de Orizaba—the highest mountain in Mexico. The process begins with a chemical analysis to determine optimal conditions, and then the beans are steamed and prepared for extraction. The extraction process uses a water-based saturated solution that removes the caffeine while keeping the coffee's flavour compounds in place.
They are passionate about supporting sustainability and health in coffee growing regions, support causes that impact water conservation and partner with Grounds for Health. Other methods for removing caffeine rely on the use of chemicals, so we feel this a natural process.
We have tested a number of decaffeinated coffees, and we think that this bean tastes as close to “normal” coffee as you can get.
Like our caffeinated Mexican beans, this coffee has a medium body with a cocoa flavour and berry like acidity.
