Mountain Water Process (MWP) Decaf Process

The Water Decaffeination Process uses water from the mountains to gently remove the caffeine until the coffee beans are 99.9% caffeine-free, while maintaining the bean’s distinctive origin and flavor characteristics. It’s decaffeinated coffee without compromise.

The Water Process is a taste-driven, 100% chemical free, water decaffeination process that delivers to today’s consumer expectations. 

Water Decaffeination Process Steps:

Mountain Water processing takes place in Mexico using water from the Pico de Orizaba Mountain

Beginning with green coffee beans being either steamed or soaked in hot water to expand the coffee’s pores, making the caffeine more easily extractable.

From there, the beans are soaked in water which, over time removes the caffeine while leaving the original flavor oils intact.

That water is then moved to a separate tank and the caffeine is filtered out.

The beans are dried and shipped to our Roastery.
