A clean cup of coffee can make your day, so brew Bulletproof Original Decaf coffee. This medium roast features distinct notes of cinnamon, plum and orange with a cocoa hazelnut finish.
Pre-ground for your convenience. The after 2pm coffee. Drinking coffee in the late afternoon or evening can disrupt sleep. Granted it's a great tool to stay awake when needed.
CERTIFIED CLEAN COFFEE Expertly-picked and sorted for the highest quality beans Thorough, sustainable washing and drying technique Tested for toxins before it meets your mug
Ordinary Decaf vs. Bulletproof® Decaf
Supermarket decaf coffees, as well as many boutique decafs, are routinely made from less desirable Robusta beans which contain high levels of natural bitter compounds associated with increased cholesterol.
These low-grade beans are moistened during the normal decaffeination process and may then remain unroasted for months, giving moulds opportunity to form mycotoxins that contaminate normal decaf coffee.
Another problem is the frequent use of toxic chemicals in the normal decaffeination process.
Bulletproof® Upgraded™ Decaf Coffee is made of high-end Arabica beans and processed with Swiss Water process. Then these premium decaffeinated beans are roasted as quickly as possible in order to minimise any contamination with mycotoxins.
The Bulletproof® Coffee Decaffeination Process
Our Arabica beans are first cleaned and pre-soaked in pure water to hydrate the beans.
We create Green Coffee Extract (GCE), minus the caffeine, from premium Arabica coffee beans by simple water extraction.
Our green Coffee beans are then placed in the GCE which is saturated with ALL the desirable coffee molecules, minus the caffeine.
The concentration level and the stability of the soluble coffee components in the GCE is maintained at equilibrium with the green coffee beans – critical to our process.
We carefully monitor time, temperature, and flow, and optimise the high pressure caffeine specific driving force between the bean and the GCE. The result is a net extractive process in which only caffeine is removed by osmosis, leaving the coffee’s unique “origin flavour” characteristics intact.
This process is repeated for 8 – 10 hours, until the coffee beans are 99.9% caffeine free. Close monitoring of this process is critical to Bulletproof specification.
After our Upgraded™ Coffee beans are decaffeinated, they are removed from the holding tanks, dried, bagged, tagged, and ready to be roasted.
The Bulletproof decaffeination process stipulates a markedly narrow interval between the decaffeination process and the Bulletproof roasting process.
Swiss Water Process is Green
Our Swiss Water process received several certifications from the green movement. No chemicals and no waste! Most important to coffee drinkers, Swiss Water process yields a deep, flavourful tasting coffee that is naturally invigorating.
Bulletproof® Coffee is Rainforest Alliance Certified
The Swiss Water® Decaffeination 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. The decaffeination facility itself must conform to the OCIA’s rigorous standards. The organic integrity of our operation ensures organic coffee beans are decaffeinated using the Swiss Water® Process maintain their organic certification. Rainforest Alliance Certification
We decaffeinate coffee that is Rainforest Alliance Certified. This guides and rewards continual improvements on farms, linking sustainable farm management with coffee quality – connecting responsible producers and traders with innovative companies and better markets. The seal ensures that forests, rivers, soils and wildlife are conserved and that workers and their families are respected, paid decent wages, and have access to education and medical care.
Coffee is the number one source of antioxidants for Australians (Bulletproof Dieters are an exception). The antioxidant molecules in decaf coffee are numerous, and even caffeine is an antioxidant. Roasting increases the antioxidant content of the beans and we carefully control our roasting process to maximise antioxidant content as well as minimise any mycotoxin contamination. Decaf Coffee delivers a bottomless cup of benefits.
