Santos SWP Decaf
Brazil is one of the worlds’ biggest producers and exporters of Arabica coffee varietals. Famous for their smooth, chocolate, and nut characteristics with low acidity, Brazilian coffees are a favorite for forming the base of coffee blends.
The term ‘Santos’ is generally used as a way of grading coffee, referring to the higher quality coffee Brazil is known for. The name originates from the port from which most of Brazil’s best coffees are exported and specializes in the Bourbon variety of Arabica.
The SWP process works through diffusion, not osmosis. Initially, green coffee beans were soaked in water until all the caffeine and flavor compounds were extracted. The beans were then discarded, and the solution they created was run through a carbon filter that removed the caffeine, leaving behind only the flavor compounds—what SWP calls its green coffee extract, or GCE.
