In the state of Chiapas, you will find Mexico's oldest and largest coffee producing regions, some farms can look back on a history of more than a hundred years. With the influence of the Atlantic Ocean on one side, and the Pacific Ocean on the other, the mountain slopes of Sierra Madre Chiapas cross the region dividing the state, and creating various special microclimates.
This coffee is decaffeinated using the Mountain Water Process which involves sourcing natural mountain water from the Pico Orizaba (one of the largest mountains in Mexico). Before going into process, a detailed physical chemical analysis is performed to determine optimal conditions. Beans are steamed and prepared before the extraction. Using a water-based saturation solution of solid soluble from the coffee beans, the caffeine is extracted under controlled conditions of flow, temperature, pressure, and vacuum. After the extraction takes place, the coffee is dried gently through the triple drying system and ends with the coffee beans being polished. This natural process leaves a full flavored coffee without any chemical residue.
