Here's a new single origin Mexican decaf!
It's not often we have a new decaf but we're very proud to offer this organic decaf from Mexico. This decaffeination process undergoes the Mountain Water Process. As explained below no chemicals are involved in this process thus retaining the beautiful characteristics of this coffee.
All the coffee is received in parchment, quality controlled and transported to a high tech drying mill in Veracruz. Its quality control standard allows for only 15 imperfections per 300 grams.
We chose to roast this to a medium roast making it suitable for both espresso and filter brew methods.
If you consume coffee for pure pleasure rather than merely the caffeine fix we want to put something mind blowing in your mug! We pride ourselves on valuing the sensory experience of coffee over its pharmaceutical effects.
Mountain Water Decaf
Mountain Water Process is a method of removing the caffeine indirectly. This Mountain Water decaf comes from Descamex, which uses pure water from Pico de Orizaba—the highest mountain in Mexico. The process begins with an analysis to determine optimal conditions, and then the beans are steamed and prepared for extraction. The extraction process uses a water-based saturated solution that removes the caffeine while keeping the coffee's flavor compounds in place.

This means that for every gram of ground coffee dosed into the porta-filter there is 2 grams of coffee extracted. If using and dosing with an 18g porta-filter you can extract approximately 36-grams of liquid (coffee). Still stuck? Check out this link to learn more about brew ratios click here.
