When thinking about how to make an excellent decaffeinated coffee you have to first focus on the coffee before decaffeination. The original quality of the green coffee before decaffeination is extremely important, surprise surprise.

What Makes a Great Decaf - Mike Strumpf - Swiss Water Process
We've been delighted with the outcomes from the coffees we've sent to Swiss Water Process for decaffeination. Our current decafs are no exception and offer a range of possibilities.
Antelope across the prairie, clearly unconcerned with caffeine content
Each time we send off new coffees for decaffeination at the Swiss Water Process factory like antelope sprinting across the prairie, we're looking carefully through our coffees for great candidates and new possible blends. We have have a wonderful example of a decaf version of one of our Proyecto Xinabajul coffees as well as 2 new blended decafs which provide truly unique and remarkable decaf profiles.
