Swiss Water Decaf - Colombian ExcelsoColombia
About the coffee
Swiss Water® Process uses the elements of water, temperature and time to create some of the most intriguing decaf coffee. First, they start with small batches of amazing coffee and green coffee extract. Then they add local water and a dash of loving attention by monitoring time and temperature until the coffee is 99.9% caffeine-free, whilst protecting the unique origin characteristics and flavour and remaining 100% caffeine free!
This Excelso bean is smaller than it's sister the Supremo grade, but it packs a sweeter punch and has a deep body,which is characteristically smooth and mellow, with a slight caramel flavour note and pleasant acidity. The SWISS WATER® Process is a taste-driven and really enhances the original and natural flavour of this roast.
There is a new dawn occurring on the popularity of Swiss Water Decaf, as it is the ideal choice for coffee lovers for many reasons, e.g, pregnant and breast-feeding women are advised to limit their intake, while many find that caffeine disrupts sleep or can make some people more anxious, or for some people who enjoy simply drinking lots of coffee, but without the usual after effects.
About the growers
Colombia is the fourth largest country in South America and the only country in the region to have both Atlantic and Pacific coasts. The highland area which runs down the central-western part of the country is made up of three mountain ranges that form into the single Andean range in the south. To the east, and comprising almost half the landmass, is a vast area of flat plain-land and Amazon jungle. Colombia has been persistently disrupted by political violence for decades, funded in recent years by huge illicit revenue gained from drug trafficking. Oil and agriculture (including coffee) form the basis for legitimate export revenue.
