Peru Mountain Washed Decaf
Our Mountain Water Decaf beans come from Latin America’s first decaffeination plant
that opened in 1983, situated in Córdoba, Veracruz. This decaffeination process is highly
complex but put simply the green beans are steamed gently then immersed in water
saturated with flavour compounds of coffee. As osmosis occurs, the only property that
leaves the beans is caffeine. The essential flavour elements in the beans stay there,
balanced by the water already containing the flavour elements. The beans are then
dried, analysed and cupped.
