Mount Hagen is an organic instant coffee brand from Hamburg, Germany.

Comes in two primary types (based on a 2 gram serving):

Organic fairtrade instant

40 mg up to 110 mg per serving - average is 70 mg.

Organic fairtrade decaf

6 mg caffeine per serving.

Mount Hagen produces its instant coffee using a method that begins with organic coffee beans and ends with freeze-dried coffee granules. Here’s a clearer breakdown of the process:

1. Organic Beans:
The process starts with selecting coffee beans that are grown organically, avoiding synthetic fertilizers or pesticides to support sustainable agriculture.

2. Roasting:
These beans are then roasted, a crucial step where the flavor, aroma, and color of the coffee are developed. Proper roasting is essential for achieving the right taste.

3. Brewing: The roasted beans are ground and brewed, resulting in a concentrated coffee extract. This is similar to making coffee at home but on a larger scale.

4. Freeze-Drying: Next, the coffee extract is freeze-dried. This involves freezing the liquid coffee and then lowering the pressure around it so that the ice changes directly into vapor, leaving behind dry coffee granules. This method preserves the coffee’s original flavors and aromas.

5. Granulation: Finally, the dry coffee is broken into small pieces or powdered, ready to be packaged. This instant coffee can be quickly reconstituted into a cup of coffee by adding hot water.

The key advantage of Mount Hagen's process, particularly the freeze-drying step, is that it retains the coffee's quality and taste, offering a convenient yet flavorful cup of coffee.
