Excelso is a coffee grading term in Colombia. The beans are large but slightly smaller than Supremo coffee beans. Colombian coffee is graded before shipment according to bean size. It is possible that Supremo and Excelso coffee beans are harvested from the same tree, but they are sorted by size.

Decaffeinated coffee has come a long way since its invention in 1903. Unfortunately, though, some of us are still drinking in the dark ages. You see, most decaffeination processes employ chemical solvents such as methylene chloride or ethyl acetate to strip caffeine molecules from the green coffee bean.

Swiss Water Decaffeination uses water from the coast mountains of British Columbia to gently remove the caffeine until the coffee beans are 99.9% caffeine-free while maintaining the bean's distinctive origin and flavour characteristics.
