The Mountain Water Decaf process is an all natural decaffeination method that bears some similarities with the Swiss Water Process. First, green coffee beans, which are packed with caffeine, are soaked in the crystal clear waters of Mexico's highest mountain, Pico de Orizaba. This removes most of the caffeine from the beans. The water is then put through an elaborate filtration system to clear away 99% of the caffeine from the liquid, whilst retaining all the flavours and aromas. The beans are then soaked in the liquid to infuse the flavours back into the beans.

What does natural decaffeination mean?
Natural decaffeination means that the caffeine in a coffee has been removed using all natural processes. The leading natural decaffeination processes currently being used are Swiss Water® Process, Mountain Water Process, Sugarcane Process, and CO2 Process. All our decaf coffees are naturally decaffeinated 😃
How long does roasted decaf coffee last?
An unopened bag of roasted decaf coffee beans can last for up to 2-3 months, less if the beans have been pre-ground for you. The ideal time to enjoy your roasted decaf coffee is 7-21 days after the roast date, as roasted beans experience a 'degassing' phase after they have been roasted, during which time carbon dioxide is naturally released from the beans.
The one-way valve that is common in most coffee packaging allows carbon dioxide to be released from the bag, while preventing oxygen and moisture from entering it. Once the degassing phase ends the beans begin absorbing oxygen. This process causes a slow and gradual decline in freshness and aroma.
Personal taste and storage methods will also affect the freshness of decaf coffee beans. Coffee should be stored in an airtight bag or container, out of direct sunlight, in a cool dry area.
How much caffeine is in decaf coffee?
The amount of residual caffeine in decaf coffee depends on the process that was used to decaffeinate the green coffee beans. We have found that the Swiss Water® Process and Mountain Water Process result in a 99% caffeine free coffee, while the Sugarcane Process and CO2 Process result in a 97% caffeine free coffee.
When are orders dispatched?
Our decaf coffee roasters send coffee directly from their roasting facility to your home to guarantee freshness. This means that when your order contains decaf coffees from different roasters as part of the same order, each will ship separately.
You will receive an email with tracking numbers once orders are dispatched.
It's important to keep in mind that roasters have individual roasting schedules and most do not roast over the weekend. Orders are typically dispatched 24-48 hours after roasting.
Is decaf coffee safe for pregnant women?
Current Australian Guidelines indicate that "Pregnant or breastfeeding women and children should restrict their caffeine intake."
All decaf coffees on Tasty Decafs have all been decaffeinated using natural decaffeination processes, free of chemicals and additives, and are 97-99% caffeine free.
