Decaf - Mountain Water Process
Our decaf is 99.9% caffeine free!
In the decaffeination process, the green coffee beans are immersed in water in order to extract the caffeine. The water contains the soluble components of the coffee beans which holds the elements of the flavor, so that, during the extraction of the caffeine the beans maintain their original components.
Mountain Water Process Decaffeination is a unique, natural process; using the clear, pure water from the glaciers on the highest and most beautiful mountain in Mexico at 18,491 ft, the Pico de Orizaba making it the 3rd highest peak in North America
To separate the caffeine from the water containing the soluble components, the water passes through a special filter which removes the caffeine. This results in “coffee solid soluble charged water” saturated with the flavor components but free of caffeine, which is used again in the extraction process.
As a result of this process we obtain coffee beans that are 99.9% caffeine free. Once the decaffeination process is finished, the beans are dried and packed, and ready for roasting.
