Decaf Coffee: Good or Bad?

Decaf Coffee: Good or Bad?

Coffee is one of the world's most popular and widely consumed beverages.

A lot of people enjoy drinking coffee, but they want to limit their caffeine intake for personal preferences or health issues. For them DECAF COFFEE is a natural choice.

Decaf coffee is similar to a regular coffee, however the caffeine has been removed.

What is DECAF COFFEE and how is it made?

Decaf is short for decaffeinated coffee, meaning the intention is to remove most of the caffeine.

There are many ways to remove caffeine from coffee beans. Unlike other brands, at WATTLE CAFE our beans are processed using the Swiss Water Method whereby the caffeine is stripped without the use of chemicals. This is an important distinction since many store bought decaf coffee options use chemicals to strip away the coffee. Together with our roaster - Abbotsford Road we are able to source the best possible beans direct from the farms and they are processed 100% chemical free. This is incredibly important to our mission as we work to support our customers living their best lives. Sourcing and providing clean food is an integral part of what WATTLE CAFE represents.

Decaf is loaded with...

Coffee, in its purest forms can be a powerful source of antioxidants in your diet which are very effective at neutralizing reactive compounds called free radicals.

Cleanly processed decaf coffee usually contains similar amounts of antioxidants as regular coffee, although they may be slightly lower.

In addition to antioxidants, decaf coffee also contains minor amounts of some nutrients-one cup of brewed decaf provides. But more than anything, Decaf coffee is a great way to have a coffee for those of use choosing something that packs a smaller punch in our days.

The Bottom Line

Coffee in its purest forms is one of the healthiest beverages on the planet. However, not everyone wants to drink caffeinated coffee. So for those of us, decaf coffee is an excellent way to enjoy our daily cup of coffee without the side effects.
