If you want coffee with less caffeine, our Lowcaf is made for you. Notes of maple syrup, pine nuts and chocolate make this coffee a real taste experience.
The green coffee is a variety blend of the Catimor and Sarchimor varieties and grows at an average of 1250 meters above sea level in the Veracruz region of Mexico. We source it directly and without detours from the Rancho San Felipe farm. The De Gasperín family has been running this since 1924 and also works with other producers in the region. If you are now wondering what Low Caf actually means, we have the answer for you: Our roast is a mixture. It consists of 50% caffeinated and 50% decaffeinated coffee beans from Rancho San Felipe. So the bean itself is the same.
The caffeine-free portion is decaffeinated in Mexico using the mountain water process. This is a particularly gentle, chemical-free method. For decaffeination, the Descamex company cleans a batch of unroasted coffee beans and soaks them in water. In the water bath, the pores of the beans open and the water-soluble substances - including caffeine - are flushed out.
Using activated carbon filters, the employees remove the caffeine from the liquid obtained. Now a new batch of coffee beans goes into the saturated but caffeine-free water. The caffeine from the coffee beans now passes into the liquid, while the remaining substances remain in the green coffee. Cleaning takes place again with activated carbon filters and the process starts again until the green coffee has less than 0.01% residual caffeine. The beans are then dried and sent on.
Dieser Kaffe ist perfekt für mich, da ich gerne noch zur späteren Stunde eine Tasse Kaffee trinke. Das Koffein wirkt, aber eben nicht so stark. Super Idee!
Ich trinke ihn als Filterkaffee und auch als Espresso. Super süßer und cremiger Geschmack!
