Oxfam decaf coffee: a delicious flavour without adverse health effects

This organic, fair trade, decaf coffee is made from at least 90% Arabica beans. It’s balanced in flavour, with a mild body and a fruity aroma: a tasty espresso, free of caffeine.

To extract the caffeine from the coffee beans, Oxfam Fair Trade avoids the use of chemicals. Instead, we apply the CO2-method, which is 100% organic and therefore healthier. How does this work? The unroasted beans are immersed in water. As a result, they swell and the caffeine component in the beans becomes ‘mobile’. The caffeine is then dissolved under high pressure and at low temperature using carbon dioxide (CO2). Finally, the beans are dried, causing the carbon dioxide to evaporate.

Decaffeinating the beans does not affect the taste: the coffee remains wonderfully aromatic and of high-quality.

Making a difference – this is how Oxfam Fair Trade does it

Oxfam coffee offers you a guarantee of direct, fair trade. And by choosing our coffee you make an immediate contribution to this.

  • We buy directly from our cooperatives, not from plantations, and enter into a long-term relationship with our partners. This implies a better income guarantee and better growth opportunities for the farmer.
  • In addition to the fair trade minimum price and premium, the partner also receives an organic and quality premium.
  • Coffee expertise: we execute our own quality control and provide feedback to the coffee cooperatives.
  • Pre-financing opportunities: if necessary, up to 60% is paid in advance to the cooperative, enabling it to buy its members’ crop at a decent price.
