I'm a big fan of the misunderstood, the vilified, the underdog, the breaking of myths.” -Dominic Monaghan
We decided a long time ago that if Coava was going to be involved in something, it was going to have to be excellent. Not sometimes, but all of the time. Whether it’s the farmers we partner with, the importers who help us transport our coffee, the amazing small coffee shop baristas who use our beans, or the non-profits we are honored to support; they all carry an undeniable work ethic and care for quality.
This is why when it came to the often overlooked subject of offering a decaf, we partnered with Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee Company. They see coffee like we do. If a coffee farmer is going to meticulously hand pick and prepare every cherry, we show them respect by ensuring their coffee is represented with the same care on our end.
This decades-long pursuit of excellent decaf has led Swiss Water to invest their time and resources in science and coffee culture.They've expertly developed and refined a 100% chemical-free decaffeination process that manages to remove 99.9% of all caffeine while maintaining the highest standards for flavor in the industry. On top of that, they've made themselves an educational resource to the public, worked with farmers and importers, and have insisted on environmentally sustainable practices throughout their supply chain. Swiss Water has not only upped the quality of decaf around the world, but also demonstrated that the black sheep of our industry can stand on its own.
The proof, however, is in the cup. With coffee from our partners at Las Capucas in Honduras, Swiss Water has created the most delicious decaf we have ever tasted. We hear baristas and coffee lovers all over the United Stated praising its quality and ease of use. For once the coffee underdog has been given a fighting chance through the Swiss Water Process.

Swiss Water’s people, coffee, and environmentally friendly practices mirror so many of our own values that our partnership with them as our sole decaffeinator was obvious.
