Our Ethiopia Decaf Swiss Water Process is cooperatively grown in the surrounding towns of the city of Djimma. It is a traditional dry process Ethiopian, but the beans are bit smaller in size than most, due to the decaf process which accounts for a small percentage of weight/moisture loss. This Ethiopia Decaf Swiss Water Process produces a nice cup with a slight earthiness, good acidity and a medium body. It’s grown at altitudes between 1300 and 1800 meters, and produces a nice cup with a slight earthiness, good acidity and a medium body.
Decaffeinated coffees are notoriously difficult to roast due to their unique cell structure, composition and moisture content as a result of the decaf process. Roasters should be mindful of drum temperatures as decafs have the tendency to develop significantly faster than non-decaf coffees; this should always be taken into consideration when roasting coffees like the Ethiopia Decaf Swiss Water, as well as our other specialty green decaf offerings.
The Swiss Water Process is a patented, eco-friendly, chemical-free process that removes 99.9% of the caffeine from a lot of green coffee. Each lot of decaf is immersed in clean water to extract the caffeine through osmosis and passed through activated carbon-charcoal to remove the caffeine molecules.
