As the holiday season approaches the need for a great tasting decaffeinated coffee to end an evening becomes an important consideration. Sonofresco has a range of 5 excellent decaffeinated coffees for you to choose from. All of them have great flavors and have managed to retain similar taste profiles as their underlying coffees have prior to decaffeination.
As we all know, decaffeination is the removal of caffeine from green coffee beans. To have the label decaffeinated in the USA means that 97-99.9% of the caffeine had been removed. Swiss water Processed Decaf coffees are guaranteed to be 99.9% caffeine free.
There are 4 distinct ways to remove caffeine, several of which invoice the use of chemicals. All coffees sold by Sonofresco is 100% chemical free. They are either Swiss Water Processed in Vancouver, BC or Mexican Royal Select Water Processed.
