Swiss Water Process Coffee
Then I started Sagebrush Coffee and researched decafs I could offer that would hold to the standards that we have for our regular coffees. That's when I learned about SWP coffee and all of what I knew about decaf was entirely wrong. SWP coffee uses water and not chemicals, so the flavor profile stays completely intact and sometimes improves.
But here's the best part, the US standard for Decaffeination is 97% of the caffeine needs to be removed. The Swiss Water process gently removes the caffeine until the coffee beans are 99.9% caffeine-free while maintaining the bean’s distinctive origin and flavor characteristics. If you see a decaf coffee at Sagebrush Coffee, rest assured that it's always SWP decaf coffee.
