Each 500g pack contains 100% Arabica Organic certified coffee with caffeine removal by the highly respected chemical-free Mountain Water Process.

This premium specialty-grade, single-origin coffee has been converted to Decaf using the most stringent procedures.

We love its super-sweet toffee flavours, with hints of apricot, black cherry, mandarin, nectarine, black tea, and that long, rich milk chocolate finish.

There is a well-balanced acidity and a smooth finish with this Organic Mountain Water Decaf.

We are the largest Decaf roaster in Australia.

For more than 15 years, we have been roasting quality, chemical-free decaf coffee beans for delivery to customers all around Australia.

Our reputation for producing Australia's best-roasted decaf coffee beans remains today.

Organic Mountain Water is a premium decaf bean sourced from one of the best farms in Honduras. Rich, smooth, and creamy with a delicious chocolate finish.

Decaf Vs Traditional Coffee Beans

Please NOTE:

Decaf coffees have a significantly darker green bean appearance than traditional coffee beans.

Once roasted, Decaf coffee beans will appear very dark (almost black). They may emit a light sheen of oil on the outside surface of the roasted beans as soon as 2-3 days after roasting.

This dark colour of roasted Decaf and the light oil sheen does not mean the coffee was over-roasted.

It also does not mean the coffee is stale.

The dark colour and slight sheen are standard for roasted Decaf coffee beans.

The process that removes the caffeine imparts a higher moisture content inside the coffee bean cell structure, generating a darker shade and oily outer appearance.

We have developed a reputation for roasting some of the best decaf beans in Australia, and it starts with selecting and using the absolute best quality decaf green beans.

Most roasters struggle to produce a pleasant-tasting Decaf as they only do it sometimes. Because raw Decaf has a different appearance, moisture and density than traditional coffees, many coffee companies end up over-roasting Decafs, making it bitter and ashy.

Our roasting equipment has finer air and temperature control, enabling us to produce a wonderfully soft heat that suits the decaf roasting process.

We are famous for roasting some of Australia's best decaf coffee beans, and we are sure you will enjoy them.

Brew recipes are a guide only

Espresso brew recipe

Espresso brew recipes assume professional or commercial equipment (machine in grinder) are used.

For domestic (consumer) grade, please ensure you adjust the suggested values accordingly.

Dose - 20 grams

Yield - 39 grams

Brew Time - 30 seconds

Ratio - 1 : 1.95

Tips - One of the challenges with chemical-free (water-based) Decaf coffee extractions is the higher rates of swelling (blooming) for the ground decaf compared to conventional coffees.
This means you may need to allow for greater expansion in the portafilter of the ground coffee.
It makes for a more challenging experience as the grind and dose must be accurately calibrated to your equipment.
Try first by starting out on the slightly coarser side of medium for standard espresso and then working your way towards a finer setting or compensating using a higher dose to achieve the ideal extraction rates.

How we roast your coffees

light, medium or dark

Each coffee in our store has a unique roast profile carefully engineered and continuously updated to achieve the best balance of flavor, body, complexity, acidity, sweetness and finish.

It's a never-ending process with new lots arriving almost weekly along with the constantly changing Melbourne weather conditions.

We don't use light, medium or dark as our guide. That's so outdated and quite frankly inaccurate with around 20 shades each of light, medium and dark.

The external or outside color is never a true indicator of a coffee's cup attributes (or performance).

In other words, coffee can appear dark outside but have under-developed internals (sour, flat, weak, thin, etc.) if it was roasted poorly.

Similarly, a light exterior can easily mask or hide internal scorching or invalid roasting profile.

The target for all of our coffees (excluding specific filter roast products that are intentionally roasted lighter) is medium.

Think cafe style and coffee that is best suitable for espresso or traditional brewing devices.

What's critically important to us is that we extract maximum goodness for you to enjoy.

After 20 years and hundreds of thousands of batches, we think our Tier 1 infrastructure, skills and experience surpass the market.

did you know about

Ground coffee

Ground coffee will lose around 80% of essential vitality after 15 minutes oxygen exposure. Even ground coffee inside of a sealed, unopened bag will stale considerably within 2 weeks.

Some brewing applications, such as espresso, require roasted coffee in peak freshness to produce a delicious extraction. Other brew methods are less sensitive to the impact of staling coffee.

To ensure freshness, we never hold, store or manufacture any ground coffees. All our coffees are packed as whole beans within 1hr of roasting to lock in freshness.

When a customer orders ground coffee, we take fresh roasted beans, cut the seal, grind, clean and re-seal within 60 seconds. All at the moment your order is packed for dispatch.

We recommend for the best coffee experience to consider purchasing whole beans and grind only enough to brew just moments beforehand.
