Decaf Flavored Coffee
Decaf flavored coffee is an excellent way to enjoy the strong, rich taste of premium Arabica coffee. The addition of fresh, interesting flavors does nothing to detract from the experience. Rather, the delicious aroma of spices and sweets serve to whet your taste buds before you even taste your drink!
Swiss Water Decaf Process
The decaffeination process uses SWISS WATER. The Swiss Water process is a taste-driven, 100% chemical free decaffeination process that delivers a flavored decaf coffee that is 99.9% caffeine-free while protecting the unique origin characteristics and flavor. Most other processes use chemical solvents, like Methylene Chloride or Ethyl Acetate to decaffeinate coffee beans. This process maintains a clean original taste for our flavored decaf coffee.
Decaffeinated Coffee Is Not Evil
Everyone loves coffee, but decaffeinated coffee, even flavored decaf coffee, has an underserved reputation of being a substandard, inferior product. The fact is; it's possible to enjoy coffee devoid of the accompanying caffeine without sacrificing the volatile compounds and aromatic oils that make gourmet coffee a drink that is a true pleasure to imbibe. The pleasure of having your favorite drink without the caffeine is further enhanced by the wide variety of estate and decaf flavored coffees that are available be from Volcanica Coffee.
Decaf flavored coffee is a much-maligned beverage in some quarters. However, a cup of decaf coffee won't bring about the end of the world. In fact, the reduction in caffeine can even be better for your health, especially if hypertension and its accompanying symptoms is a concern for you! Decaffeinated coffee offers individuals who are allergic to caffeine the chance to try out different flavors that would otherwise be unavailable to them.
Doing It As The Swiss Do Decaf Flavored Coffee
The process that produces flavored decaf coffee is viewed with well-founded suspicion sometimes. This is because there are suppliers of gourmet decaffeinated coffee that use chemical solvents such as methylene chloride or ethyl acetate to remove the caffeine from their coffee beans. Volcanica utilizes a completely chemical-free decaffeination process that uses only the purest Swiss water. This ensures the original taste and aroma of the coffee is preserved while at the same time removing nearly all the caffeine contained.
To go slightly more in-depth into the matter, chemical solvents such as those listed above actually adhere to the caffeine molecules in the coffee beans. This allows the unwanted caffeine to be rinsed away, but sometimes leaves behind a harsh flavor that defeats the purpose of enjoying a cup of gourmet flavored decaf coffee. Caffeine extraction with chemical solvents has also been linked with adverse effects to a person's health.
In contrast, the Swiss water caffeine extraction method sees green, unroasted coffee beans immersed in hot water over several hours. This process, which sees the removal of the unwanted caffeine as the water passes through charcoal filters is, admittedly, time consuming and costs more to carry out than chemical extraction. However, because the original robust flavor remains in the beans with this method, the contrast in flavors is amazingly clear cut, thus allowing Volcanica to provide coffee aficionados everywhere with the chance to buy decaf flavored coffee with the purest coffee taste.
Flavorsome Decaf Coffee
So, what's the big deal with flavored decaf coffee? Flavored coffee is a delicious way to enjoy a large range of flavors. Purists may say it's a travesty to adulterate the strong, pure taste of premium gourmet Arabica beans with flavorings that are more at home in a cake. However, we believe that blending the very same distinctive flavor of excellent decaf coffee with the mouthwatering aromas of cinnamon or creme brulee only serves to enhance your coffee experience.
You don't have to worry about the sugar content or having to count your calories either with flavored decaf coffees from Volcanica either. Our flavored coffees contain no carbohydrates or calories. You don't even have to be wary of ingredients that may be allergenic to you! When you buy decaf flavored coffee from Volcanica, you can rest assured that our beans deliver the sublime flavors such as the smooth, sweet taste of butterscotch toffee with none of the accompanying guilt!
Flavored coffee actually goes back a long way as far the history of coffee drinking is concerned. It's certainly nothing new to Arabs who brewed their coffee in Yemen! They added additional ingredients to it for more flavors, contributing to the evolution of a beverage that was discovered when a shepherd caught his flock of goats chewing on the berries from a coffee bush.
Flavored coffee, both decaf and caffeinated, lets us play around with many flavors. Some of these flavors wouldn't look out of place in a dessert! For instance, our Chocolate Raspberry decaf flavored coffee blends the rich, smooth and velvety taste of dark chocolate. At the same time, the bright flavor of raspberry asserts itself in a sudden, tangy burst that is almost cheeky.
