Is our decaf chemical-free?

When it comes to our single-origin organic decaf, we frequently get asked whether it's chemical-free? Safe?

The short answer to both of these questions is YES!

We will explain where your decaf coffee is coming from, so you can enjoy your coffee both without stress and toxins ; )

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 water. This process was invented and patented by Mexico-based company Descamex.

Mountain Water Process involves sourcing the natural mountain water from Pico De Orizaba (one of the largest mountains in Mexico). They use this pure water to create steam and a pressurized 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 roasted this coffee medium-dark to accentuate the sweetness and natural flavors of coca, spices, and apple.
