Cafédirect's Fairtrade and Organic Decaffeinated blend bursts onto the coffee scene with no apology: it packs quite an aromatic punch to the palate. Bold, boisterous, with a full body and sustained balance of flavours, it keeps a certain caramelly charm and shows a slightly spiced edge. This coffee does not fade or grow bitter on the finish nor does it short-change the tongue: pick it, always for perfect drinking pleasure.
Coffee beans of the highest quality are grown in the rich soils of Latin America, Africa and the Caribbean, at altitudes of up to 6000ft (1830m). They are then medium roasted and blended by experts to give you the highest quality coffee taste.

Q: Is this coffee organically or chemically decaffeinated?
A: Hi, the Decaffeinated Organic coffee is chemically free and listed below is a simplified version of the steps in the decaffeination process that Cafédirect use:
The coffee beans are mixed with pure water, which causes their pores to open making the caffeine particles within the beans mobile.
The moistened beans are put into a drum with pressurised liquid carbon dioxide. The Carbon Dioxide attracts the caffeine particles like a magnet and clings on to them.
The Carbon Dioxide is then removed from the beans in an evaporator. The caffeine is also removed during evaporation as the caffeine particles attach themselves to the Carbon Dioxide molecules.
The coffee beans are then gently dried to their original moisture content.
The decaffeinated beans are then ready for roasting and packing.
I hope this helps, Robyn.
