Swiss Water® Process Decaf 24 Count
XO Coffee's Swiss Water Process Decaffeinated Coffee uses an all-natural, chemical-free process to remove the caffeine. Because it uses an all-natural process, all of the flavor of the high-quality coffee remains in your cup. Most other decaffeinated coffee has caffeine removed using chemicals like formaldehyde. This affects the flavor of coffee and the “purity” of the brew. The patented Swiss Water® process leaves you with incredible coffee – without the buzz. Our pods K-cup® brewer compatible.
XO’S Swiss Water® Decaf
In our competitor's decaffeinated coffee, caffeine is captured through the introduction of a volatile solvent such as methylene chloride or ethyl acetate (um...yuck!), which allows the caffeine to attach to the solvent and then can be removed through dehydration. However, in the Swiss Water Process, no chemical solvents are used
Our decaffeinated coffee beans are are soaked in caffeine-free green coffee extract, allowing the caffeine to be extracted from the bean and into the solution while the flavor components are retained in the beans. The now caffeine-saturated green coffee extract is then processed through activated charcoal to remove the caffeine, thus becoming caffeine-free again and ready to extract caffeine from a new batch of coffee. The coffee beans are then dried to their originating moisture level and re-bagged. The Swiss Water Process results in coffee that is 99.9% caffeine free.
ORGANIC, FAIR TRADE IN BIODEGRADABLE K-CUP®* COMPATIBLE PODS
XO Coffee uses no synthetic fertilizers or chemicals used in growing or production, which means cleaner beans, air, land, and water. XO Coffee organic beans are richer in healthful antioxidants – and most people can even taste the difference. Your health and the health of the planet, both get a boost – as well as your taste buds.
Why Fair Trade?
Why BIODEGRADABLE COFFEE PODS?
The only part of our coffee pods that still aren’t biodegradable is the internal filter mesh. To date, we haven’t found a biodegradable version capable of withstanding the heat of our production process. But we’re not giving up!
Some people ask us why we bother if we can’t achieve 100% compostability yet. Well, because all reduction in permanent waste makes a huge difference. Together, we can reduce the garbage being generated by single-serve coffee.
