Swiss Water® is the innovative craft of using pure water to gently remove caffeine. Our 100% chemical free process decaffeinates coffee in small batches. This means we can remove caffeine from very select amounts of Specialty Coffee. Coffee that is grown and harvested with the utmost care. Coffee that we’re excited to taste. Coffee that once decaffeinated, will still taste every bit as delicious as it did before we got our hands on it. Promise.
Swiss Water® Process is certified organic by the Organic Crop Improvement Association, the world’s largest organic certification agency, in accordance with standards developed by the USDA National Organic Program. Our decaffeination facility conforms to the OCIA’s rigorous standards. The organic integrity of our operation ensures organic coffee beans maintain their organic certification through the decaffeination and onto the coffee roaster.
We offer a variety of Fairtrade Certified decaffeinated coffees. Because we believe being fair with the people who make coffee possible at ground zero is the only way to do business. Fairtrade connects farmers, businesses, and consumers in sustainable and meaningful ways. Fairtrade principles are there to ensure fair prices, fair labor conditions, democratic and transparent organizations, community development, and environmental sustainability.
Swiss Water® Process meets the strictest standards of kosher law – Kashrus. And we are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Rabbinical Council of British Columbia. BC Kosher is recognized throughout the world by all rabbinical associations. Mazel tov!
Rainforest Alliance Certified™
Being Rainforest Alliance Certified™ isn’t just about the trees. It’s about the people who live in the Rainforest – and the farms they work on. With continual improvements, such as linking sustainable farm management with coffee quality, connecting responsible producers and traders with innovative companies, and creating better markets, the seal ensures conservation of forests, rivers, soils, and wildlife. It also guarantees that workers and their families are respected, paid decent wages, and have access to education and medical care.
UTZ certification has many requirements of its coffee growers and in return helps ensure farmers get the resources they need. Certified producers train employees on health and safety procedures, plus the correct use of pesticides and emergency procedures. It also helps implement proper record keeping and encourages the use of sustainable energy sources. With UTZ, agrochemicals are used responsibly and certified producers protect trees and prevent soil erosion, which all adds up to more sustainable farms.
