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.
