Swiss Water Decaffeinated
The Swiss Water Process is an organic certified method to remove caffeine from coffee. It utilizes hot water to remove the caffeine from a batch of green coffee beans. The initial batch of beans is discarded and the flavor filled water retained. The water is ran through a preferential filter that removes the caffeine, but leaves the flavor behind. This flavor charged water is used to decaffeinate the next batch of green coffee beans. The flavor charged water helps preserve the flavor of the decaffeinated coffee. This process is expensive, but results in a very flavorful decaf. coffee.

You don’t want to experience the detrimental effects of chemical byproducts of conventional decaffeinated coffee. You can find Swiss Water Processed decaf. coffees online or at your local natural food store.
