Swiss Water Decaffeinated Brazilian
Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee Co. Inc. is a global leader in environmentally responsible chemical-free decaffeination of specialty coffee and has been since 1989.
The SWISS WATER® Process is a taste-driven, 100% chemical free decaffeination process that uses water from the coast mountains of British Columbia and proprietary caffeine-specific carbon re-generation technology. We promise that solvents like methylene chloride or ethyl acetate are never used to remove caffeine from green coffee beans.
Using water, the SWISS WATER® Process removes caffeine such that the beans are 99.9% caffeine free while maintaining the unique origin flavor, body and aroma characteristics. The best of the bean remains while only the caffeine is removed.
Oberon coffee could be described as the Queen of Brazilian coffees. Only the best and finest coffees from Brazil’s Cerrado region find their way into Oberon.
Cerrado is located in a dry and flat region in southwestern Minas Gerais. Because it is mainly dry and flat, producers can worry less about the elements and focus more of their time and energy on producing great coffee. The cherries are picked at the best stage of their maturation, which allows the bean to absorb as much sweetness as possible. The Oberon is the perfect blend of the three main characteristics found in coffee (acidity, body, and sweetness). This makes for a well-balanced coffee that has pleasant, citric acidity, a smooth and full body, nice sweetness, and a dark chocolate flavor.
