What does the Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee Company do?
We decaffeinate coffee using a 100% chemical-free water process that preserves the maximum flavor and character of the bean.
What drives your passion for this industry?
We are a coffee company first and foremost – one that specializes in amazing coffee without caffeine. A strong argument can be made the decaf drinkers are the truest fans of coffee, seeking the flavor, aroma and mouthfeel – the experience of drinking coffee – without requiring the alkaloid boost of caffeine.
The best part of working in coffee is:
There are so many great things about working in coffee; getting to drink coffee all the time (including really good decaf when we’ve had too much caffeine), working with amazing coffee producers, exporters, importers, roasters and baristas, being part of an amazing and diverse global community….
Why did you join the National Coffee Association?
Our membership in NCA brings so many benefits! NCA has its finger on the pulse of coffee sales and consumption, it is the strongest political voice of coffee in the USA, and it brings together leaders from every major coffee and coffee-related company in North America.
What sets your organization apart?
We aren’t here to harvest caffeine for resale to the soda, energy drink and pharmaceutical industries. We produce delicious decaffeinated coffee for roasters around the world.
What’s the most important issue facing the coffee industry?
WCR is focused on ensuring the survival and success of coffee agriculture despite increasing environmental threat.
GFH’s mission is simple: reduce cervical cancer among women in developing nations (notably in coffee-producing regions) by addressing the lack of screening which results in much higher incidence of this disease.
