This coffee comes from the Medellin region, one of the larger coffee growing areas in Colombia. This region produces the majority of Colombian coffee that is categorized by bean size grade (eg Excelso). Medellin coffee typically has a medium body and are known to produce well balanced cups. After harvesting, the coffee was processed using the EP (European Preparation) processing menthod which means that the green beans are all hand sorted to remove any defective beans and foreign material.

After drying, on patio, this particular Lot has been decaffeinated using the Swiss Water process, a very effective and non-chemical way of removing the caffeine from coffee, but at the same time maintaining the original flavour and characteristics of the coffee.

The Swiss Water decaffeination process uses water to gently remove caffeine from green beans while maintaining the bean's distinctive origin and flavour characteristics. The Swiss Water Process was originally discovered in the 1930s in Switzerland and is now patented and utilised by the Swiss Water Decaffeination Coffee Company in British Colombia, Canada. The process ensures that 99.9% of the caffeine is eliminated, while leaving the best of the bean behind. They call it 'decaffeinated coffee without compromise'.

The Swiss Water Process honours the decaf drinker by preserving the chlorogenic and amino acids in the bean, which result in better body and flavour.
