Our latest Swiss Water Process decaf is all-out chocolatey goodness - it really hits the spot! Cerrado is one of Brazil's most well-known coffee growing regions. It is relatively flat which makes picking easier and is considered by the World Wildlife Fund to be the most biodiverse savanna on the planet.

The Swiss Water Process first involves the production of Green Coffee Extract (GCE) which is created using a batch of coffee beans soaked in water. After the water removes the caffeine as well as other flavour compounds, the beans are disposed of and this liquid is filtered to remove the caffeine. A batch of coffee can now be soaked in this GCE and because of the flavour compounds already in this liquid, the beans will retain these compounds while releasing their caffeine.

Caffeine levels, time and temperature controls are monitored and adjusted for about 10 hours until the coffee is 99.9% caffeine free.
