This is a 100% chemical free decaffeinated coffee. This is because it is decaffeinated using the slower Swiss Water method. So you can be certain that no chemicals have been used to decaffeinate your beans. It is medium bodied with nutty notes. You can use this bean in your espresso machine or as a drip through or filter coffee, as it is good in all applications. We can grind this for you if you prefer or buy the beans for grinding yourself.
