Why 100% Chemical-Free Decaf Matters
Unlike most commercial methods that use chemical solvents to extract caffeine from the beans, SWISS WATER® Process only uses pure water and GCE (described below); therefore, ensuring that decaf organic coffee stay free of chemicals. Better for you and the environment! And, in line with Trees Organic’s coffee standards, the process is certified organic and their decaf coffees that we get are Fairtrade certified.
SWISS WATER® Process was pioneered in Schaffhausen, Switzerland in 1933; hence, the name’s origin. In 1989, the SWISS WATER® Method was developed and introduced to consumers by the Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee Company, based in our own backyard of Burnaby, British Columbia. Their decaffeination process (illustrated below) removes caffeine from the green coffee beans using four elements (coffee, water, time, and temperature) and based on the concepts of solubility and osmosis. More uber-details about the method are available here.
Preserving Benefits, Flavours and Aromas
With the SWISS WATER® Decaf coffee, you can still enjoy coffee to the fullest because the nutritional value and range of health benefits of decaf coffee are considered the same as regular coffee. Similarly, the distinct aromatic and flavour qualities of a coffee bean varietal are largely preserved by the unique, chemical free water process.
