Why you should choose Water Processed Decaf

Millions of Americans drink decaf coffee to satisfy their desire for coffee without the jitter of caffeine. But is decaffeinated coffee really free of caffeine, and why do some of them taste boring or even flat? And what about chemical residue in decaffeinated coffee?

Here is the truth about decaffeination. FDA regulations specify that for coffee to bear a decaffeinated label, 97 percent of the original caffeine must be removed from the beans. The coffee we use here at Tico Coffee Roasters is actually decaffeinated to European Standards which requires 99% caffeine removal.
