Roasted Medium, full of flavour but without that caffeine hit.

TASTING NOTES: Aroma of dark chocolate, caramel and nectarine aroma. Flavours of dried fruits, chocolate and roasted nuts with a light stone fruit acidity. Medium lingering body with a clean finish.

Essentially, the Swiss Water® Process removes caffeine by gently soaking green beans in a water solution for just over 8 hour. The solution absorbs caffeine from the beans, and is then repeatedly carbon filtered until 99.9% of the caffeine is removed.


 

Locally grown sugarcane is fermented to produce Ethyl Acetate compounds. Green (unroasted) coffee is steamed then soaked in water with the EAs which remove the caffeine. The water is drained and the coffee is rinsed, re-steamed (to remove any traces of the EAs) then sent to us for roasting.

Until recently most roasters would buy beans made using the Swiss Water method which is a patented method that can only be done in Canada.
This meant the beans were grown in Brazil then shipped to Canada for decaffeination, then shipped to NZ.

The Sugarcane Decaf coffee is sourced and decaffeinated in Colombia and shipped directly to us. This saves thousands of food miles per shipment and means a higher proportion of earnings is retained by the farmer. Best of all, it tastes incredible.
