Mountain Water Decaf ®
these Mountain Water Decaf processed beans come from Latin Americaâ€™s first decaffeination plant that opened in 1983. Situated in CÃ³rdoba, Veracruz; the operation has grown and today is recognised worldwide for its quality control, research and development and innovation.
Mountain Water isnt just a name, the water used is melted glacial water from Pico de Orizaba , Mexico s highest mountain.
The process is highly complex but put simply the green beans are steamed gently then immersed in water saturated with flavour compounds of coffee. As osmosis occurs, the only property that leaves the beans is caffeine. The essential flavour elements in the beans stay there, balanced by the water already containing the flavour elements. The beans are then dried, analysed and cupped.
Mountain Water knows their coffee, selecting grades and origins that come through the decaffeination process with body, flavour and aroma.
In June 2017, the The International Taste & Quality Institute based in Brussels with judges selected from 15 of the most prestigious European culinary and sommeliers associations awarded Mountain Water Decaf a gold star Superior rating.
