We can tell you that our decaf coffees taste just like regular, and that the decaf coffees we have now are the best we have ever tasted, but you really have to try them to believe it.
We care deeply about the flavor of our decafs, which is why they are sourced from the freshest current coffee crop available. Most other decafs are sourced from “past crop” coffees which is why so many people think of decafs as tasting “a bit off” or “stale”. By sourcing fresh coffee crops, and then sending the green beans directly to the certified Organic decaffeination facility in Veracruz Mexico, we get truly great tasting decafs.
All of our decaf coffees are made using the Mountain Water Process. Clear and pure water from the glaciers on the highest mountain in Mexico, The Pico de Orizaba or Citlaltépetl, is used throughout the decaffeination process. The green coffee beans are immersed in mountain glacial water to extract the coffee oils and caffeine. The water/coffee oils/caffeine solution is then passed through a special filter to remove the caffeine. The flavor rich but caffeine free coffee solution is then returned to the coffee beans under pressure to re-infuse them with their original oils. The decaffeinated beans are then thoroughly dried and tested for quality to maintain the flavor profile of the original coffee.
