About Our Decaffeinated Flavored Coffees
- SERC: Many of our flavored decaffeinated coffees are Socially and Environmentally Responsible Coffee (SERC™). SERC coffees are organically-grown, providing adequate shade and shelter to birds, and purchased from the farming cooperatives at fair trade prices (25-45% above regular natural coffee prices).
- MWP: Decaffeinated using the Mountain Water Process (MWP). MWP immerses the green coffee beans in the clear, pure water from the glaciers on the highest and most beautiful mountain in Mexico, the Pico de Orizaba or Citlaltepetl, to extract the caffeine. The water contains the soluble components of the flavor, so that, during the extraction of the caffeine, the beans maintain their original components. To separate the caffeine from water containing soluble components, the water passes through a special filter which removes the caffeine. This results in "flavor changed water" saturated with flavor components but free of caffeine, which is used again in the extraction process.
- SWP: Decaffeinated using the premium SWISS WATER® Process (SWP), which uses only water when removing caffeine.
