Mount Hagen instant organic coffee is organically grown highland coffee made from 100% Arabica beans. It is the first certified organic freeze dried coffee in the world. Mount Hagen is 100% organic certified by EcoCert in accordance with the organic standards of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Mount Hagen has been carefully selected and separately harvested to bring you the highest quality, mild and naturally rich in flavored coffee. The freeze-dried coffee process is achieved without the use of any form of preservatives or additives. Our coffees are from plantations of the best cultivation areas in the world. These highland coffees are quarantined to be organically grown without the use of any artificial chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, fungicides or fertilizers. Mount Hagen Organic Instant Decaffeinated Coffee is made using the CR3 Natural Liquid Carbon Dioxide Coffee Decaffeination Process. In this patented process, the natural carbon dioxide is used under subcritical conditions i.e. in a liquid state at (relative to the supercritical process) low temperature and pressure. This process makes sure the compounds responsible for the flavor and taste development in the roasted coffee are left practically intact. This reduces any health risk since the coffee is contacted only with 100% safe substances: the chemically inert, completely evaporating, carbon dioxide and pure water, allowing Mount Hagen to offer a high quality, 99.99% caffeine free instant decaf coffee to satisfy even the most discriminating taste.
