    If you give this coffee to someone without telling them it's decaffeinated you will always be greeted with the same look of astonishment when they find out! Firstly because we apply the same criteria for excellence to the coffee we choose to decaffeinate as we do to all of our Grand Cru coffees. Expect flavours of dark chocolate, raisin, plum, liquorice, malt, black cherry and tobacco. Secondly, the method of decaffeination is designed to remove only the caffeine and not the precious flavour compounds that give coffee its character. The Mountain Water Process involves immersing the coffee beans in water to extract the 99.9% of the caffeine. No chemicals are used, and a filtering process allows the beans to maintain their characteristic flavour. The Mountain Water Decaf process uses clear, pure water from the glaciers of the Pico de Orizaba Mountains in Mexico, although often the coffee we choose is not in itself Mexican. This dark roast makes a phenomenally good espresso or base for a latt� and cappuccino.
