Coffee Facts

This CO2 processed decaf coffee comes to us from the department of Nueva Segovia in Northern Nicaragua – the CO2 process leaves much of the coffees character intact so that there is good body and balance in the brew.

The Sparkling Water CO2 Process was first discovered by a scientist called Kurt Zosel at the Max Planck Institute for Coal Research in 1967 as he was looking at new ways of separating mixtures of substances. In 1988, a German decaffeination company called CR3 developed this process for decaffeination whereby natural carbon dioxide (which comes from prehistoric underground lakes) is combined with water to create ‘sub-critical’ conditions which creates a highly solvent substance for caffeine in coffee. It is a gentle, natural and organically certified process and the good caffeine selectivity of the carbon dioxide guarantees a high retention level of other coffee components which contribute to taste and aroma.
