Mountain Water Process Decaffeination is a unique, natural process; using only pure water from glaciers on the highest mountain in Mexico, Pico de Orizaba (Citlaltépetl).
The decaffeination process is done by immersing the green coffee beans in water in order to extract the caffeine. The water contains the soluble components of the coffee beans which holds the flavor elements, so that during the extraction of the caffeine the beans maintain their original components.
To separate the caffeine from the water containing the soluble components, the water passes through a special filter which removes the caffeine.
This results in coffee solid solubles charged water saturated with the flavor components but free of caffeine, which is used again in the extraction process. As a result of this process we obtain coffee beans that are 99.9% caffeine free.
