Cautiously chosen from several lots, this coffee is evaluated for flavor and processing, with a view to achieving a superior cup after decaffeination.
The coffee is decaffeinated using the Swiss Water Process. Hydrated green coffee beans are introduced to Green Coffee Extract (GCE), which extracts the caffeine while preserving the original flavor compounds.
Once the caffeine has been eliminated, the green coffee is subjected to a re-drying process and then packaged for transport. To extract the caffeine, the Green Coffee Extract is passed through specialized carbon filters and the residue is reused.
