By choosing one of our many decaffeinated coffees, we promise you the same superior taste and flavor without the stimulating side effects of caffeine.

Decaffeinated coffee contains less than 1/40 of the caffeine found in untreated caffeinated beans. Caffeine is a crystal clear substance that lacks aroma and contains only a slight bitter taste. With our advanced technology, beans that have been through the decaffeinating process should produce the same exceptional taste as caffeinated beans.

Most decaf coffees, including organic decaf coffee are about 98% free of caffeine - enough to be called decaf. Since caffeine is a water-soluble substance, it's not terribly hard to remove the caffeine using water, but it has to be done right to keep the coffee's flavor.

Water is a major component in any decaffeinating process - usually it is used via a steam method or with the water at extremely high temperatures. Non-organic coffee is usually decaffeinated by the Methylene Chloride Method, or the Traditional Method.

Methylene Chloride molecules bond to caffeine molecules during a steaming process and pulls them away from the coffee bean. Methylene Chloride is a solvent and while this decaffeinating process is deemed safe, and the solvent is recycled or reused after the process, worries persist about its overall safety.

The preferred and most commonly used method for making organic decaf coffee is the Swiss Water Process. This uses an activated charcoal filter to pull the caffeine molecules away from the organic coffee bean during a steam process. This method is the most natural way of removing caffeine from coffee and is safe because it uses no chemical solvents.
