Natural Decaf Coffee

Swiss Water®

Locale Decaf Coffee by Locale is a natural Swiss Water® Decaf. The Swiss Water® Process starts by developing GCE (Green Coffee Extract) from green coffee beans. The GCE includes fresh water and all the solubles found in coffee beans without, you guessed it, caffeine! Next, fresh green coffee seeds that are still brimming with their caffeine content are washed and cleaned. They are also soaked to attain a hydration level ideal for the decaf process. Then, the GCE solution is made to flow around the green coffee beans for 8 to 10 hours. This step usually finds about 99.9% of the caffeine molecules soaked out from the beans and into the GCE solution. Caffeine is then cleansed from the GCE solution with a sophisticated carbon filtering system. That extra caffeine? Burnt away in a special furnace. Now, as the caffeine is burnt away, the GCE solution is purified and can be reused without having to be created again from scratch. The beans are then dried and packaged, ready to be shipped and enjoyed as Swiss Water Decaf Coffee.

FAQ

  • How can I get free shipping?

    We agree, free shipping rocks! Simply add two or more bags of coffee to your cart and free shipping will be applied to your entire order 🙂

  • What does natural decaffeination mean?

    Natural decaffeination means that the caffeine in a coffee has been removed using all natural processes. The leading natural decaffeination processes currently being used are Swiss Water® Process, Mountain Water Process, Sugarcane Process, and CO2 Process. All our decaf coffees are naturally decaffeinated 😃

  • How long does roasted decaf coffee last?

    An unopened bag of roasted decaf coffee beans can last for up to 2-3 months, less if the beans have been pre-ground for you. The ideal time to enjoy your roasted decaf coffee is 7-21 days after the roast date, as roasted beans experience a 'degassing' phase after they has been roasted, during which time carbon dioxide is naturally released from the beans.

    The one-way valve that is common in most coffee packaging allows carbon dioxide to be released from the bag, while preventing oxygen and moisture from entering it. Once the degassing phase ends the beans begin absorbing oxygen. This process causes a slow and gradual decline in freshness and aroma.

    Personal taste and storage methods will also affect the freshness of decaf coffee beans. Coffee should be stored in an airtight bag or container, out of direct sunlight, in a cool dry area. 

  • How much caffeine is in decaf coffee?

    The amount of residual caffeine in decaf coffee depends on the process that was used to decaffeinate the green coffee beans. We have found that the Swiss Water® Process and Mountain Water Process result in a 99% caffeine free coffee, while the Sugarcane Process and CO2 Process result in a 97% caffeine free coffee.

  • When are orders dispatched?
