ABOUT LOWERY’S COFFEES

Lowery's uses an unique hot-air coffee roasting process. A continuous flow of hot air lifts the green beans, simultaneously heating and mixing the beans. Fresh air flows through the beans and carries away smoke, chaff and dust as the beans are roasted.


Since the chaff and dust are not burned in the roasting chamber, as in traditional roasters, our coffee is never burned or smoky tasting. No water is used in the cooling process so all this fine flavor is preserved. The unique flavor of a specific arabica coffee comes through very clean and distinct which helps make Lowery's
Washington State's finest

Gourmet Coffees.


Lowery's uses only genuine high quality arabica coffees. Arabica coffees have less than half the caffeine in the robusta coffees used for most generic canned coffees. For even less caffeine see our
decaffeinated coffees.

Our World of Coffees
 

DECAFFEINATED COFFEE
Lowery's uses the European Water Extraction process. This method is mainly used on green coffee beans that are decaffeinated in Germany and imported to the United States for roasting. Water is

used to remove the caffeine from the green beans. Solvents then remove caffeine from the water and the water is then returned to the green coffee beans to restore any lost flavors. Solvent NEVER touches the beans directly.

All our decaffeinated coffees are 98% caffeine free.
