Decaf Ethiopia Yirgacheffe – Swiss Water Process (Single-Origin) – Whole Bean
About this coffee:
About Swiss Water Process Decaffeination (from Swiss Water):
When beans arrive to our facility, they are cleaned and hydrated with pure, local water to prepare them for caffeine removal, these beans are beginning their journey to becoming amazing decaf coffee.
Our internally developed Green Coffee Extract (GCE) is introduced to the beans and caffeine removal begins. Caffeine ventures out on its own, away from the coffee beans into the GCE until the ratio of soluble compounds in the GCE to the compounds in the coffee reach the point of equilibrium. Caffeine and GCE flow continuously through our proprietary carbon filters until all the caffeine is trapped and separated from the GCE. Then the GCE is refreshed so that it can be used again and again to remove more caffeine.
For the next 10 hours, our team continuously monitors the process and caffeine levels in each batch we are decaffeinating. We monitor time, gauge temperature controls, and check the levels on the GCE flow. The result of all this loving attention to detail is worth it -- 99.9% caffeine-free coffee.
Finally, the decaffeinated green beans are shipped to the roasters and the specialty coffee brands we work with, so that the beans can be turned into something special. We’re privileged to be one small stop on the amazing journey that brings coffee from unique places of origin to your cup.

We roast every Monday and Thursday for online orders; any orders placed before 6 PM on a given Sunday will be roasted and shipped out the following day (Monday). Any orders placed between 6 PM on Sunday and 6PM on a given Wednesday will be roasted and shipped out the following day (Thursday).
In other words, 6PM the day before a roast day is our cutoff for that roast day. We are happy to answer any questions about our roast schedule at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Also, please note that all coffees will ship whole bean. We aren't set up with the means to grind commercially for orders, but for locals we are happy to grind single bags at our roastery.
