HARVESTING & PROCESSING

The Decaffeination Method

This unique non-chemical decaffeination process uses the clear pure waters from the highest mountain in Mexico, the Pico de Orizaba, known as Citlatepetl is the indigenous language. 

The process works by immersing the green beans in water in order to extract the caffeine content. The water preserves the soluble flavour components of the green beans, and this protects the original characteristics of the coffee. 

In order to remove the caffeine from the water containing these soluble flavour elements, the water is passed through a filtration system. This produces a solution comprising the origin mountain water and the soluble coffee flavours, now free from caffeine. 

The resulting green coffee is 99.9% caffeine-free. The beans are then dried to the required moisture content, packed and ready to export in 69kg bags.
