Background Details

Colombia Royal Select Swiss Water Decaf is decaffeinated using the Swiss Water Process (SWP). In this method the green beans are pre-soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The beans are then introduced to Green Coffee Extract (GCE), a solution concentrated with coffee solubles that extract the caffeine without extracting the coffees particular flavor.
