Swiss Water Process (SWP) is a method of decaffeinating coffee beans without the use of chemicals, such as solvents or chemicals. It is a natural and environmentally friendly process that involves removing caffeine from coffee beans using only water and osmosis.

The Swiss Water Process begins with green coffee beans that are soaked in water to dissolve the caffeine. The water is then filtered through activated charcoal, which captures the caffeine molecules but allows other flavor compounds to pass through. This process is repeated until the desired level of caffeine is achieved, typically resulting in coffee beans with 99.9% caffeine removed.

One of the key aspects of the Swiss Water Process is that it aims to preserve the flavor characteristics of the coffee beans, while removing the caffeine. This is achieved by using the same water-soluble compounds responsible for the coffee's flavor and aroma to extract the caffeine, which helps to retain the natural flavors of the coffee.

Swiss Water Process decaf coffee is known for its smooth and balanced flavor profile, similar to regular coffee, as it retains most of the original flavors of the coffee beans. It is a popular choice for those who want to enjoy coffee without the stimulating effects of caffeine, while still savoring the taste and aroma of coffee.
