The 'Swiss Water' decaffeination process (SWD) is 100% chemical free, and removes approximately 99.9% of the coffee beans's caffeine content whilst preserving the original flavour characteristics
Our Guatemalan SWD arabica coffee beans are slow-roasted to get the very most out of the bean. If great-tasting decaffeinated coffee is your preference, then you will be unlikely to find any better.
These coffee beans are every bit as flavourfull as our standard Guatemalan 'El-Fogon'. The taste is rich and creamy with a smooth finish - delicious.
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

A really smooth tasting cup of coffee; great on its own with a lovely crema or as an americano, latte, cappuccino etc. Roasted to perfection, as ever, by the Coffee Bean Shop. No one who has tasted it knows that it is decaffeinated (and we don't tell them).Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]By Gloria Booth

This is a the best decaff coffee I have tasted. Very smooth and creamy. I really nice taste with the benefits of being through the swiss water process rather than chemicals to decaffeinate the coffee. Ace Coffee!Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]By Sara Swinton

Love the taste of smooth, rich, dark coffee but could do without the caffeine? Then this startlingly good coffee is the one for you! A seriously superior coffee.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]By Gerry Pocklington

Hands down ... this is the best decaffeinated I've ever tasted and I've tasted quite a few. Whilst others tasted a little rough this Guatemalan is beautifully smooth and full of rich flavours. It's also great to mix with milk.
My guests were surprised when I told them they were drinking a decaf.
Guatemalan Swiss Water Decaffeinated from the Coffee Bean Shop will definitely be a repeat purchase.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]By James Cox
