Does my decaf have chemicals?

Many coffee lovers drink decaffeinated coffee for various reasons. Most of those reasons are for better health such as high blood pressure. Although some people are not bothered by caffeine some of us will get an increase in heart rate when we drink coffee. One thing you can do to help offset the caffeine that you consume is to drink at least an equal amount of water within a short time after your cup of coffee. This will help your system to remain balanced. Another thing you should consider is how the caffeine is removed from your coffee. Although there are different methods to remove caffeine there is only one method that is chemical free. That method is SWISS WATER® Process. Our 7 Seas Decaf is Swiss water processed as we at Pirate’s Brew Coffee will never roast coffee beans decaffeinated in any other way. Always read the description of your coffee and insist on Swiss Water Process Decaffeinated Coffee. You can visit their website at for a lot more information but here is a sampling from their website..

Our ecology-friendly water decaffeination process uses simple science to remove caffeine from green coffee beans. Still, it’s a bit more complicated than your average high school science class, so in short let’s just say you’re getting all the things you love about coffee without the caffeine.

Alternatively, the proprietary SWISS WATER® Process uses water from the pristine environment of the coast mountains of British Columbia, Canada to gently remove the caffeine until the coffee beans are 99.9% caffeine-free, while maintaining the bean’s distinctive origin and flavor characteristics.
