For years many people have turned their noses up at just the thought of a decaf coffee! This is most likely due to the way decaf coffee has been processed in the past.
Traditionally it was stripped off it’s caffeine using harsh chemicals which also tended to strip any flavour from the bean itself and leave a chemical aftertaste.This chemical method is still used in most cheaper decaf coffee availables today. It’s no wonder that Decaf coffee has such a bad reputation!
However, here at Bean to Door we wanted to make sure we had the best tasting Decaf to offer to you. With that in mind, we have chosen a Swiss Water Process decaf coffee. It’s a completely natural way to decaffeinate coffee beans and doesn’t affect the end flavour of the roasted bean. We tasted over 20 different Swiss Water decafs and ended up settling on a delicious coffee from 4 separate origins.
Our decaf tastes so good, that in a blind test it would be very hard to tell it was actually decaffeinated!
What is Swiss Water Process?
In the Swiss water process, green coffee beans are soaked in water, which dissolves the caffeine. Natural coffee components are then added to the water to make up for the flavour compounds that leach out of the beans along with the caffeine.
The caffeine is then filtered out of the water and the process repeated until the beans are 99.9 per cent caffeine free.
Decaf coffee can be a great way for pregnant women, breastfeeding women, people having trouble sleeping or people sensitive to Caffeine to enjoy a delicious cup of joe without having to worry about the effects of caffeine.
