Decaf before Death

 Death before Decaf is likely a term you’ve heard before. Some people have a negative view of decaffeinated coffee because they believe that in order to forgo the caffeine, they’ll have to sacrifice quality as well. Others simply think what’s the point? Decaffeinated coffee has come a long way since inception, and gone are the times where taste needs to be sacrificed in order to enjoy a good cup of decaf.  These days, the experience of enjoying coffee offers more than a caffeine buzz – it’s a social event, a discovery of our favorite origins, a moment to appreciate the crop to cup journey. The list of possibilities goes on. Unfortunately, caffeine doesn’t affect everyone the same way.

Pregnancy, sensitivity, and the need for a good night’s sleep are the top deciding factors for consuming less or avoiding caffeine – and no reason is reason enough to suffer through a poor tasting cup of coffee. You already know that great coffee exists, and when coffees are decaffeinated with Swiss Water® Process, great decaf exists too. Keep an eye out for our logo, and check out our locator to find amazing coffee without caffeine near you.

It’s important to acknowledge that not all decaffeination methods are created equal. Certain processes use chemicals, others use water or CO2, and then there’s us. Swiss Water® Process is more than just decaf – its amazing coffee without caffeine.  Starting with small batches of the finest coffees we can source, we use water, temperature, and time, to selectively remove caffeine, while leaving the flavor and the character of the coffee untouched. Our Operators work 24/7 to ensure beans leave our facility tasting just delicious as they came to us, and 99.9% caffeine free.  Our 100% chemical free process allows coffees to maintain their organic certification as well.
