Description

These Rwandan wholesale decaf roasted coffee beans have had the caffeine knocked out of them using the natural C02 method explained below. They are a blend of high-quality Arabica beans which are certified as fair trade. They are roasted medium-dark and produce a cup with Rye bread, chocolatey notes that are very polished for a decaf. The blend is a versatile one and depending on how you grind can be brewed up in a variety of styles including espresso, French press and pour-over.

Caffeine-free coffee has come a long way since its early days. The process of removing the magic molecule from beans was invented by German merchant Ludwig Roselius who commercialized the product under the still successful ‘cafe HAG’ brand. Early attempts at removing caffeine relied on treating the beans with solvents such as benzene. This damaged the beans and affected the quality of the coffee, making it harder to roast accurately.

Chemical solvents including ethyl acetate or methylene chloride are still used today, but a new breed of demanding coffee customer has helped drive the push towards chemical-free methods of production. Today’s more natural methods are gentler and do a much better job of preserving the flavour of coffee beans. The two most popular ‘natural’ ways of doing it are called the ‘Swiss Water Process and the ‘C02 Process’ When choosing a decaf, look for these as chemical methods affect compounds key for the flavours and aromas of the magic bean to a much greater degree.

CO2 Process

Our coffee goes through the CO2 process, which is similar to the preparation of washed coffee. However, this method involves using squashed carbon dioxide in water to attract, and then remove, the caffeine from the green coffee. As this approach only uses CO2 and water – and charcoal as a filter – it’s completely chemical-free.
 While the caffeine is extracted, none of the proteins or carbohydrates is disturbed, leaving us with all those tasty flavours. What’s more, the byproducts of the CO2 process are completely natural and recyclable, which is great news for the planet!

The Swiss Water Process

This involves soaking raw beans in the caffeine-free green coffee extract as a solvent. As the beans steep, their caffeine is drawn out into the liquid. The coffee is drained out and the beans are dried and bagged.

While a natural and gentle process, the same solvent is often used to treat a vast number of batches of beans, which some say flattens out the unique flavour and aromas of any individual bean.
