The SWISS WATER® Process is a 100% chemical-free coffee decaffeination process that produces robust, great-tasting decaf. Most other processes use chemical solvents like methylene chloride to remove caffeine from coffee beans. This is not only unhealthy but also removes more flavor than necessary! Conversely, the SWISS WATER® Process uses only water when removing caffeine, producing pure, water-processed decaf coffee.
All of the fine Flavorbean coffees are available in Regular or Decaf, and as always remain Natural. It takes about 8 hours to naturally remove 99.9% of the caffeine, and it is worth it. For example, my friend Howie was here in San Francisco for the holidays and he has some issues with caffeine and his stomach. I am a good host, but seriously I do not need a gassy guest stinking this place up. That is what would happen- trust me, it’s not a pretty sight and hats off to the Swiss Water Process for saving the day! Smelling the aroma of freshly brewed Organic Flavorbean Hazelnut Coffee was a win-win!
