Swiss Water Decaf Coffee Bean
Our quality decaf beans won Bronze at the Royal Sydney Coffee Awards in February 2016.
Over the last decade have found that the best quality Decaf coffee is the Colombia Swiss Water Process.
Each pack is 500g of 100% Arabica certified Swiss Water Process (SWP) whole coffee bean medium roasted coffee - excellent for Espresso style, plunger, stovetop and even filter coffees.
This is, without doubt, the best decaf you can buy - we have a reputation for producing the best-roasted decaf coffee beans in Australia.
This coffee is authentic chemical-free Swiss Water Process De-Caffeinated coffee.
The caffeine is extracted using a patented process that retains all the flavours of coffee.
This is a premium decaf bean sourced from one of the best farms in Colombia - rich, smooth, creamy with the full chocolate finish.
Decaf Vs Traditional Coffee Beans
Decaf coffees are significantly darker in the green bean state when compared to traditional coffee beans.
Once roasted, Decaf coffees appear very dark (almost black) and may emit a sheen of oil 2-3 days after roasting.
This dark colour of roasted decaf does not mean the coffee was over-roasted or is stale.
We have developed a reputation for roasting some of the best decaf beans in Australia and it starts with selecting and using the absolute best quality decaf green beans.
Most roasters struggle to roast decaf as they don't do it very often and it's lighter, darker and different moisture and density to traditional coffees.
For this reason. most roasting companies end up over-roasting their decaf making it bitter and ashy.
Our roasting equipment has finer control of air and temperature enabling us to produce a wonderfully soft heat that really suits the decaf roasting process.
We have been roasting Swiss Water Process (Chemical Free) Decaf for 10 years and over that time we have tried many of the different types - from various origins and even different brand of chemical free decaf including the Mountain Water coffees.
Without doubt, the Colombian SWP Decaf has been the constant standout - consistent, reliable and always presenting in a way that would fool anyone in a blind taste test.
This is a cracking good decaf and to be honest, I love roasting it - the aromas from the roasting process are far sweeter and more intoxicating that non-decaf.
Expect to taste a nutty, chocoate and caramel flavour - somewhat like a snickers bar.
It's really very nice and for those of you who think Decaf is not real coffee - try this baby !
