This sweet, chocolatey decaf was first naturally processed in Brazil, then decaffeinated with the Mountain Water process in Mexico. The coffee is soaked in pure water from the highest mountain in the region, Pico de Orizaba, to first extract caffeine and flavor compounds. Once the compound-rich water is filtered to remove 99.9% of the caffeine, it’s reintroduced to the beans so they can reabsorb their flavors.
The Minas Gerais state is one of the most prolific coffee-producing areas in Brazil. Some of the highest quality specialty coffee is grown here, particularly in the Cerrado and Sul de Minas regions, where each harvest consistently yields high-scoring lots and impressive cup profiles. Although the regions closely neighbor each other, Sul de Minas boasts a mild climate and an average altitude of 950masl, while the Cerrado biome enjoys distinct seasons and heights from 800 to 1300masl.
Cerrado is a model ecoregion for modern agriculture, led by the entrepreneurial spirit of farmers searching for a fresh start when crops in Parana and São Paulo were devastated by disease and pests in the 1970s. Backed by intense research from government agencies and supported by Cerrado’s ideal coffee-growing environment, the region thrives and continues to pave the way for innovative farming as a sustainable business.
Choose your roast!
Light Roast is great for pour-over or drip if you enjoy more of the sweetness and subtle acidity a coffee presents.
Our medium roast brings more of the nutty and chocolate flavors forward and is extremely versatile for cold-brewed or hot brewed coffee drinks.
the darkest roast we offer of this origin has developed more of the rich chocolate flavors. It’s perfect for anyone who enjoys a dark roast coffee as well as someone who enjoys a medium roast.
Pick your Brazil Mountain Water Decaf grind
If you have a coffee grinder at home we suggest you choose the whole bean option. To read more about whole bean or pre-ground coffee click here.
Our Northside Coffee pour over grind is best for anyone who enjoys manual brew methods. We choose a more fine grind to ensure the best extraction using any pour-over method.
If you have an automated drip machine, choose the drip grind option. We set this grind to produce a high-quality cup of coffee on all automatic coffee brewers.
The cold-brew grind option is our most coarse grind. Since the cold brew extraction method takes a longer time, the large grind allows for more surface area and balanced extraction.
Our Northside Coffee espresso grind is dialed in for our machine at our cafe downtown. It might not be as compatible with every espresso machine so we recommend for most espresso drinkers grind it themselves. We know that may not be an option for everyone so we will provide a fine grind for your convenience.
We hope you enjoy your coffee and appreciate your feedback.
