Coffee Compass – Decaffeinated Whole Beans
Colombia Swiss Water Decaffeinated
The Swiss Water decaffeination process is a very effective and non-chemical way of removing the caffeine from coffee, but at the same time maintaining the flavour and characteristics of the coffee. The superb, nutty and sweet character of Colombian coffee is maintained in a natural and delicate way.
The Swiss Water process involves placing the top grade coffee beans in pure water with soluble coffee components. It is kept in this state for around 12 hours until 99% of the caffeine has diffused out from the bean while maintaining the essential flavours. The absence of chemicals makes this a very popular process as the most natural and pure form of decaffeination.
A little bit about Coffee Compass
The Coffee Compass is a family run coffee roastery on the South Coast of England. Unlike many of the inferior and industrially produced coffee brands that you will find in the supermarket, the fine coffee blends and pure origin roasts that we sell on our website are sourced from farms that have been selected as the best in their region and using agronomy practices of an exceptional standard.
Coffee Compass select from farms and mills that have a passion for producing exceptional coffee beans, farms that care about their practices and the impact on the environment and the care of their employees. At The Coffee Compass they have always found that good farm practices are synonymous with great coffee and that employees that are well paid and are valued by their employers work to a higher standard and help the farm to achieve excellence in the growing and production of gourmet coffee.
The Coffee Compass is exceptionally demanding in ensuring that they only select the very best of the coffee crops from beans that have been harvested at optimum ripeness and have been prepared for export to the highest standard. They then roast on site to order to ensure maximum flavour and freshness or pack unroasted if requested before being despatched by courier for delivery, often the next day. In addition to caffeinated roasted coffee beans, they have carefully selected and are able to provide the finest decaf beans available which are decaffeinated using natural techniques to ensure none of the rich flavour, unique texture or aromatic fruitiness is lost.
