This Decaf is processed using the Swiss Water Method (steam) to get rid of the caffeine. A complicated process where the flavour and caffeine is removed and then filtered before the flavour is put back.
Other methods use Methelene chloride (paint stripper) Ethyl acetate or Carbon Tetrachloride (dry cleaning fluid). Best to avoid them!

Ethiopia where coffee was discovered aprox 1200-1500 years ago is still one of the world’s best coffees. Generally dry processed because of a lack of water, which can be a great advantage as it produces a unique sweet taste.
