The Watertower Decaf
The Watertower Decaf
The Watertower Decaf is a Swiss Water Processed decaffeinated coffee from Guatemala. It comes from our friends at the Asociación Barillense de Agricultores (ASOBAGRI) in Santa Cruz Barillas, Huehuetenango.
During the Swiss Water process, the green coffee is hydrated to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The hydrated green coffee is then introduced to Green Coffee Extract (GCE), a unique solution of concentrated coffee solubles that allows the caffeine to leave the green coffee via osmosis while minimizing the loss of desired flavor compounds. Once the caffeine has been removed the green coffee is re-dried and re-bagged for transport to our roastery, and the GCE is filtered of its caffeine through proprietary carbon filters and recycled to be used again.

The Cup: This coffee is an amazing Swiss Water Process decaffeinated coffee from Guatemala. In this balanced coffee, the flavors of milk chocolate and peanut butter are combined with the citrus fruit flavors of mandarin orange and hint of cayenne pepper. The coffee is just as amazing as its non decaffeinated cousins we had roasted recently.
Big chocolate taste but not a big coffee taste. I’m new to needing decaf only, and trying to find bold flavor and decaf is hard. I do like that this is water processed, but it doesn’t have any more flavor than a $6 bag at the grocery store.
