A kinder, gentler cup of decaf
The demand for decaffeinated coffee continues to grow. As consumers become more health-savvy and environmentally conscious, they want to make healthier choices. They are increasingly concerned about the provenance and safety of foods – where the food comes from and how it is processed. Many consumers cannot tolerate the side effects of caffeine, yet they still want to enjoy the taste of coffee and everything that comes with it, hence the growth in demand for decaffeinated coffee.
Right now, methylene chloride and ethyl acetate are the solvents used to decaffeinate approximately 65% of the world’s coffee. When aware of the alternatives, consumers will choose SWISS WATER® Process based on it being environmentally friendly chemical-free, 99.9% caffeine-free, while supporting great taste.
You’re In Good Hands.
Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee Co. Inc. is a global leader in environmentally responsible chemical-free decaffeination of speciality coffee and has been since 1989.
Relax. It’s 100% chemical free.
The SWISS WATER® Process is a taste-driven, 100% chemical free decaffeination process that uses water from the coast mountains of British Columbia and proprietary caffeine-specific carbon re-generation technology. We promise that solvents like methylene chloride or ethyl acetate are never used to remove caffeine from green coffee beans.
Calm down. It’s 99.9% caffeine free.
Using water, the SWISS WATER® Process removes caffeine such that the beans are 99.9% caffeine free while maintaining the unique origin flavour, body and aroma characteristics. The best of the bean remains while only the caffeine is removed.
We continue to improve bean colour and strive for ever-greater chlorogenic and amino acids retention, resulting in truer origin flavour in a decaffeinated coffee.
