[Homeroast] Is Decaf just staticy?

The Ethiopia is water processed.  The SM notes say that it is not Swiss Water.  Donkey is a blend, so I couldn't say how it is decaffeinated.
 
I couldn't comment on how processing might affect static, if it does at all.  I don't even know why I am seeing a difference.

Just out of curiosity. Do you know if the beans were chemically decaffeinated or Swiss water decaffeinated? I catch myself wondering if the two processes would yield a difference in this issue. This would be very interesting pointless trivia to bring home on Thanksgiving!!
