This Swiss Water decaf from Costa Rica, is amongst their very best, over the past few years the guys and girls that decaffeinate our lovely coffee's have taken massive leaps forwards in improving the taste and colour of decaffienated coffee and this is no exception.
Did you know that Costa Rican is such a highly prized coffee, it has been known in one famous case to be exchanged for Jamaica Blue Mountain in a barrel and charged out for 10 times the price!
The Swiss Water Method (a brief explanation)
Unlike many other decaffeination methods, Swiss Water relies on no chemicals and produces a coffee that is 99.9% caffeine free. On the beans arrival in Vancouver, they are washed and hydrated using fresh water. They are then soaked with Green coffee extract (caffeine free of course) and moved to a holding tank where the remaining caffeine is extracted under high pressure in a proprietary carbon filtering system which traps the caffeine molecules and nothing else. This process takes between 8-10 hours to complete. These beans are then dried, bagged & tagged ready to come for roasting.
What You Will receive
All of our Swiss Water Decaffeinated coffee is freshly roasted by us at our traditional family-run coffee roastery in rural Kent. When you order some from our online store, you receive a bag of coffee that is very much a premium product, where the aromas and flavours will be exceptionally delicious, and remarkably better than what you may be used to from the supermarket

We are big decaf coffee drinkers and this is so good that it's almost impossible to tell the difference between this and non-decaf. So smooth in a latte or capuccino.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]By Gloria Booth
