Mountain Water Process (MWP) is a non-chemical decaffeination process using glacial waters from the highest mountain in Mexico, the Pico de Orizaba to gently remove the caffeine from the green Caterra and Bourbon beans.
In basic terms the process works by immersing the green beans in water in order to extract the caffeine content. The water preserves the soluble flavour components of the green beans and this protects the original characteristics of the coffee.
In order to remove the caffeine from the water containing these soluble flavour elements, the water is passed through a filtration system. This produces a solution comprising the original mountain water and the soluble coffee flavours, now free from caffeine.
The resulting green coffee is 99.9% caffeine-free.
