Benefits of Organic Decaf Coffee
Our Sundown Decaf is organic and fair trade. Along with the lack of caffeine, these qualities provide benefits such as no pesticide use while the coffee is grown. Here are some additional advantages of our organic decaf coffee:
- It's healthier: Caffeine can cause adverse health issues such as headaches, fatigue, and increased anxiety. Choosing a decaf coffee will allow you to enjoy that great java taste without the shakes.
- It's better for the environment: During the growing process, organic farmers forgo pesticides. Avoiding artificial treatment reduces chemical runoff in local habitats to create a healthier environment.
- It's fair trade: When a product has a fair trade label, you can trust that the farmers who grew the product received a reasonable price and respectful treatment. Fair treatment allows farmers to reinvest in their communities through education and health care.
Swiss Water® Decaf Process
To create our Sundown Decaf in the healthiest way possible, our beans undergo a Swiss Water® decaffeination process. Simply put, this method relies on dissolvability and osmosis to remove caffeine from the coffee beans. The Swiss Water® decaffeination process is as follows:
- The raw coffee beans soak in pure water to create a Green Coffee Extract (GCE).
- After creating a GCE, the coffee beans dry. The beans are placed back into the GCE for rehydration and to remove caffeine.
- The GCE circulates around the coffee beans until the caffeine has migrated from the beans to the surrounding liquid.
- Once the coffee beans no longer contain caffeine, they dry again before being bagged and shipped to our roaster.
- After receiving the shipment, our roasters will roast the coffee beans to a medium level to create a delectable full-bodied toasted flavor.
Using the Swiss Water® decaf process creates high amounts of flavor without chemical treatments to make our natural decaf coffee a healthy option for all coffee drinkers, even for those who are pregnant or nursing.
