We were looking for something that tastes like graham cookie and has no aftertaste of the decaffeinated process. Not all coffee can support the water Process and keep their flavor and aroma. This one was a big surprise for us.
This is the one. The coffee that caffeine addicts won’t notice it’s decaf, and those who want to avoid caffeine will doubt that this is really a decaffeinated coffee. Without chemical residue and solvent-free, it is decaffeinated with the Mountain Water Process. We love this natural extraction process that removes caffeine while maintaining the aromatic compounds from the coffee.
