Decaffeinated Mountain Water Process

 

Decaffeinated Mountain Water Process Coffee

 

We bring you this delicious, smooth and nutty coffee straight from the mesmerising glacier mountain of Pico de Orizaba, which is the highest in Mexico, and third highest in North America.

This mountain is located in south-central Mexico. The coffee of this country is known to be delicately bodied and pleasantly dry with a crisp snap.

Mexico is one of the largest coffee producing countries in the world, which is no surprise as it is so irresistible.

If you need more reasons to try this naturally decaffeinated coffee other than its smooth, rich and exquisite flavours, it is 100% organic, rainforest alliance certified, fair trade certified and kosher.

What is Decaf Coffee?

 

Let me start by explaining what Caffeine is.

Wikipedia’s definition is ‘Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant of the methylxanthine class. It is the world’s most widely consumed psychoactive drug. Unlike many other psychoactive substances, it is legal and unregulated in nearly all parts of the world.’

Caffeine is a molecule found in the leaves and beans of tea and coffee. When consumed, it will make you more alert and prevent tiredness.

So, what is decaf?

Decaffeination is the removal of caffeine from the source, such as tea leaves and coffee beans.

 

How is Decaf Coffee Made?

There are four main methods of decaffeination used today, according to Coffee Confidential:

  1. In-Direct Solvent Process –
  • the beans are soaked in near boiling water for several hours.
  • They are then washed for several more hours in methylene chloride or ethyl acetate.
  • They are then placed back in the original near boiling water to re-absorb the flavours and oils.
  1. The Direct Solvent Process –
  • the beans are steamed for 30 minutes to open their pores.
  • They are then rinsed for several hours in methylene chloride or ethyl acetate.
  • They are then steamed again to remove any residue.
  1. The Swiss Water Process –
  • A batch of beans are soaked in hot water to remove the caffeine.
  • The water is then passed through a filter to capture the large coffee molecules, allowing the small oil and flavour molecules to pass through.
  • The flavourless decaf beans are discarded, but the flavour rich water is reused to remove caffeine from a fresh batch of beans.
  • This means that the flavours in the fresh batch can’t dissolve, only caffeine moves from the beans to the water.
  1. The Carbon Dioxide Process –
  • Liquid Carbon Dioxide is forced into an extraction vessel with water soaked beans to draw out the caffeine.

 

 

Does Decaf Coffee Contain Caffeine?

 

A common misconception is that there is absolutely no caffeine in decaf, however in most there is still a tiny amount left.

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) states that at least 97% of the caffeine needs to be removed for companies to label their products decaf.

Our fresh coffee is 99.9% caffeine free, so we can guarantee you will feel none of the effects of caffeine.

Decaf Coffee During Pregnancy

 

Baby center tells us that when you drink caffeine whilst pregnant, it crosses the placenta and goes into the baby’s bloodstream. Your body can get rid of caffeine, however your baby’s body is still developing, and it will take a lot longer for them to process it. This means that they are exposed to the effects of it for a lot longer.

Therefore, it is recommended to limit your caffeine intake while pregnant. As our Mexican decaf coffee has such a low percentage of caffeine content (0.1%), it is a great option when pregnant for those who still want to enjoy the delicious flavour of coffee.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I love coffee and enjoy trying different origins and roasts but for an excellent great daily drinking coffee with great body and taste this is my daily go to, drink it black (never pollute coffee with milk or sugar). Proves if you start with a great coffee bean, organic is a bonus, roast it really well, prepare it well (Aeropress) you get a great coffee.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    First time with a proper Decaf….. and I have to say, we are both very impressed. Whether the old body can cope without the caffeine hit remains to be seen.

    It’s a nice coffee, we like it.
