Take advantage of a great program dedicated to bringing the highest-quality, non-chemical-processed decaf coffees to market. Our Origin Select Decaf offering is a single-origin coffee selected by cup quality grown by multiple smallholder producers. They are contracted as green coffee and sent by Cafe Imports for decaffeination to a facility in Mexico, which is a break from industry norm. We are proud to offer a Mountain Water Process decaf that hold up to the same high standards of cup and responsible sourcing as our “regular” coffees.
Serra Negra, or “black mountain” is a Brazilian profile that captures the most classic profile from Minas Gerais, the growing region that includes Carmo de Minas.
Mountain Water Process (MWP) – Our water-processed decaf is done in a facility in Mexico called Descamex. In order to remove the caffeine in this process, green coffee is soaked in a water solution, which removes both the caffeine as well as other solubles in the coffee (flavor compounds, for instance). The water is removed from the seeds and run through a special filter that captures caffeine molecules and allows them to be strained from the solution. The solution—now containing flavor compounds but no caffeine—is then reintroduced to the green coffee seeds, which reabsorb the soluble materials. The coffee is then dried once more, and prepared for reexport.
