What makes our decaf so tasty
Quality coffee beans
Decaf is coffee - just without the caffeine. For selecting our decaf coffee beans we apply the same rigor as we apply to any of our other coffees. We look for sweetness, unique flavours, body and some sparkle to make the cup balanced and interesting.
Our roasting approach to decaf coffee beans
Every coffee roasts differently and nothing holds truer than roasting decaf coffee beans. Too often you may have come across decaffeinated coffee beans that are oozing oils. Not very inviting, right? Throughout the Swiss Water Process the coffee beans are soaked in water which softens the bean cell structure. The softer coffee beans absorb heat faster throughout the roasting process. And if roasted too hot or for too long, they can become noticeably oily. That’s why we apply a gentler roasting approach to our decaf coffee beans so that those tasty oils won’t leach out and your decaffeinated coffee tastes delicious.
Swiss Water Process – 100% chemical-free
We are huge fans of the Swiss Water Decaf Process. It is 100% chemical-free, environmentally friendly and retains the tasty flavours of the coffee best. The process only uses coffee, water, time and temperature to decaffeinate the coffee.
A coffee bean consists of many compounds. However, only the soluble compounds including caffeine can be dissolved by water. So, the biggest challenge is removing caffeine without removing the other tasty soluble compounds.
The Swiss Water process uses a clever ingredient - the caffeine deficient green coffee extract concentrate called Green Coffee Extract (GCE). Think of the GCE as supercharged water which is packed with the coffees’ solubles without the caffeine.
When green coffee beans are immersed in the supercharged water (GCE), which is already packed with solubles however deficient in caffeine, the caffeine moves from the coffee bean into the super-charged water. The result? Decaffeinated coffee – with all the tasty flavour minus the caffeine hit.
A sustainable coffee from certified organic coffee farms
When sourcing our coffees, we not only select the best coffees based on the unique tasting profiles, but we are also conscious of the coffee’s environmental impact. This means considering the coffees’ cultivation, harvesting and any processing undertaken at the farm.
The coffee beans of our decaf originate from certified organic farms and have arrived on Australian shores as organic certified coffee. Organic certified coffees require our farmers to have followed strict protocols in the cultivation process and not to have used any synthetic fertilisers or harmful pesticides. That’s good for you, good for the farmer and kind to the planet.
