Is our decaf chemical-free?

When it comes to our Single Origin Organic Decaf, our new customers are always asking us "how is your coffee decaffeinated?" and "is your decaf chemical-free?"

The short answer to both of these questions is YES!

Our decaf coffee originates from a plantation in Mexico, decaffeinated using pure natural mountain water only, so you can enjoy your coffee stress & caffeine-free without any harmful toxins or chemicals.

Mountain Water Process

While there are still many chemical-based decaffeination processes used and considered to be harmless, the Mountain Water Process is one of the safest decaffeination methods as it uses pure glacier water from the largest mountain in Mexico. This process was invented and patented by Mexico-based company Descamex.

Mountain Water Process involves sourcing the natural mountain water from Pico De Orizaba. They use this pure water to create steam and a pressurised environment to extract the caffeine from the coffee. This natural process leaves a full-flavoured coffee without any chemical residue, which is exactly how we prefer our decaf.

Mexico El Tucan Organic

In the state of Chiapas, you’ll find Mexico’s largest and oldest coffee-producing regions - some farms can look back on a history record of more than a hundred years. The region is surrounded by the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and divided into various microclimates thanks to the lush mountain slopes of the Sierra Madre Chiapas.

We source our coffee from a number of small producers within the area, who grow and harvest organically. We roast this coffee medium-dark to accentuate the sweetness and natural flavours of molasses, cocoa, spices, and apple.
