Swiss Water Process
Coffee Exchange decaf coffees have been decaffeinated by an all water process which uses no chemicals. Green beans are soaked in water, separating the caffeine and flavor elements from the coffee bean. After filtering through activated charcoal, the beans are returned to the filtered hot water, where the flavor elements are reabsorbed by the coffee
Coming from a region with exceptionally high heat and humidity, Sumatran coffee is renowned for its full body and rich earthy notes. This popular lot comes to us from the Permata Cooperative, growing in the Gayo Mountain region, at the northern port of Aceh. Traditionally prepared to Sumatran standards, this deliciously earthy coffee ferments overnight to then be washed the next day. Afterwards, their coffee gets dried to 40% moisture, where the wet parchment is removed before further drying is achieved. This is a classic Sumatran style coffee incorporated with blends of varietals custom to the area.
