A fresh new decaf has arrived! This decaf is Honduras Rain Forest Alliance (RFA) Mountain Water Process (MWP). This process uses water rather than chemicals to remove the caffeine to create this delicious coffee. This decaf is chocolaty with just a touch of floral sweetness.
Decaf Honduras RFA Copan Royal Select Water Process is curated from lots that the Royal team has selected based on cup profile, physical preparation, and potential to express excellently once decaffeinated. During the water process, the green coffee is pre-soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The hydrated green coffee is then introduced to a unique solution of concentrated coffee solubles that draw out the caffeine while minimizing the loss of flavor compounds. Once the caffeine has been removed the green coffee is re-dried and re-bagged for transport, and the extract solution is filtered of its caffeine and recycled to be used again.
