Swiss Water Process
The Swiss Water Process involves placing the top grade coffee beans in pure water with soluble coffee components. It is kept in the water for around 12 hours until 99% of the caffeine has diffused out from the bean while maintaining the essential flavours. The absence of chemicals makes this a very popular process as it is the most natural and pure form of decaffeination.
