Most coffee companies use toxic chemicals to decaffeinate their beans. In fact, if you don't see the natural process on your bag of decaf beans, odds are they are done the easy way, with similar chemicals to those used in nail polish and paint thinner! Chemicals we can hardly spell, let alone pronounce.
Our decaf is decaffeinated using a Mountain Water Process. Mountain Water Process Decaffeination is a unique, natural process; using the clear, pure water from the glaciers on the highest and most beautiful mountains in Colombia.
In the decaffeinating Mountain Water Process, the green coffee beans are immersed in water in order to extract the caffeine. The water contains the soluble components of the coffee beans which holds the elements of the flavor, so that, during the extraction of the caffeine the beans maintain their original components.
To separate the caffeine from the water containing the soluble components, the water passes through a special filter that removes the caffeine. This results in “coffee solid solubles charged water” saturated with the flavor components but free of caffeine, which is used again in the extraction process.
As a result of this process, we obtain coffee beans that are 99.9% caffeine-free. Once the decaffeination process is finished, the beans are dried and packed, and ready to export.
This coffee is really good
Organic Decaf Colombia
I honestly was never a fan of coffee, but it turns out that I didn’t find the perfect cup. I have been to Black River Roasters quite a while ago and I remember how much that I liked the coffee I ordered and I also wanted to help out a small business so I decided to place an order online after browsing my options. It’s such a rich and smooth taste and I love the different options of coffee grounds as well as the specific flavor notes. I will definitely be making future purchases.
Great service - fast and efficient - coffee tastes wonderful
The decaf is another excellent product from Black River. Just ordered 2 more pounds Monday.
