Ethiopian Sidamo Swiss Water Decaffeinated
Sidamo Coffee is from the southern highlands of Ethiopia. The region is one of Ethiopia's major coffee bean growing areas, and includes within it the Yigacheffe valley, which has it's own distinctive coffees. Sidamo Coffee Beans have pleasant tangy flavour with a deep, rich, earthy, syrupy and chocolaty body and finish. If you love Ethiopian coffees, this one is a must.
The Swiss Water Method (a brief explanation)
Unlike many other decaffeination methods Swiss Water relies on no chemicals and produces a coffee that is 99.9% caffeine free. On the beans arrival in Vancouver they are washed and hydrated using fresh water, They are then soaked with caffeine free (of course) green coffee extract and then moved to a holding tank where they remaining caffeine is extracted under high pressure in a proprietary carbon filtering system which traps the caffeine molecules and nothing else. This process takes between 8-10 hours to complete. They're then dried, bagged & tagged ready to come for roasting.
Sidamo is up there with one of our all time favourite coffees, namely Yirgacheffe. This is as chocolaty and rich as you would expect from a mocha bean and the caffeine takes none of that delicious taste away
Swiss Water - This is the most amazing coffee crafted without caffeine, I don't and won't buy any other decaffeinated coffee. This is simply the best and it doesn't take out the flavour like other inferior processes, meaning that you can have all the flavour of single origin coffee with 99.9% of the caffeine carefully extracted.
