Any Keurig K-Cups Decaffeinated via Swiss Water Process?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 03, 2011 at 7:48 PM

Might be a bit out there, but I'm curious. I've started drinking more decaf and we've got a Keurig coffee maker. I'm wondering if any of the decaf flavors provided by Keurig use the Swiss Water Process method of decaffeinating the beans. I'll keep looking myself, but this seemed like a good spot to ask my fellow black coffee hounds (or even those using heavy whipping cream or coconut milk)

Kind of wrecks the convenience factor which is why many buy K in the first place.

I have one of those and I like it, but when I grind my own coffee beans it's a ton of work for a single cup of coffee, he he he

I'm only interested after reading some of the process of decaffeination...seems that the "swiss water process" SEEMED to be the one involving the least chemicals...I usually have 2-3 K-cups of decaf every day or other day

They're mighty expensive, though... Personally, I would go with Oranges' suggestion of a refillable pod with a good Swiss-decaf. This is my favorite brand: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001E5DZWK/ref=rcx_subs_dp

You'll get a lot more than 24 cups of coffee for your money.

If anything, you can find a coffee that you like which does use the process you need, and use one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Solofill-Refillable-K-Cup-Keurig-Brewers/dp/B004CXG07S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1304475285&sr=8-1

Get two, it makes it a lot easier if you can fill one for the next cup while one is brewing (at least for me.)

From what I've read, "swiss water process" is not the big differentiable variable for why decaf is unhealthy. Chemically, there are not leftover, and CO2 type methods cannot leave anything bad in either.

Most of the bad stuff in coffee was already there, and it is just a matter of how it is handled and what was originally in it. The most likely reason seems to be that higher oil content beans must be used to make decaf, because of the loss of flavor caused by any adulteration.

Since you are using k-cups your already talking about the most polluted source of coffee anyway.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/04/110413090012.htm

But still, its not going to make a difference if your just drinking 1 or 2 a day (k-cup drinkers probably drink so much less coffee than drip brewers that any differences in overall consumption are academic). Just don't worry about it to much, the biggest health issue with coffee is when you screw up your sleep.

I haven't found any, but I wouldn't stress over such a little thing. A couple cups a day won't kill you.
