Peru MWP Decaf


This coffee is medium roasted creamy, and we are tasting notes of milk chocolate and citrus. 100% Mountain Water Process Decaf. Zero Chemicals. Ever!

Organized farmers run the Cautivo Cooperative of Northern Peru, and they have formed a legal association. The co-op members strive to improve the standard of living for all involved. They promote water management, environmental protection, and the production of organic materials, such as fertilizers. Through these sustainable practices, the Cautivo co-op has achieved its organic certification.

A batch of coffee in the Mountain Water process is soaked in hot water to extract caffeine. Of course, this also removes elements we want in the final coffee, such as fruity acids, sugars, fats, and oils. This solution, containing both caffeine and tasty molecules, is referred to as “Green Coffee Extract.

The Extract next passed through a charcoal filter. The filter collects just the larger caffeine molecules, allowing the water and the tasty stuff to pass through. — now 99.9% caffeine-free.

This decaf Extract now becomes the water base in which future batches of beans are soaked. Already at the maximum saturation of the good stuff, the Extract will now dissolve just the caffeine from this second batch of beans. The cycle can then continue until an entire lot of coffee has been decaffeinated.

Not only is this method performed with no added synthesized chemicals, but it produces some of the most consistently delicious decaf possible.
