HOW DECAF COFFEE IS MADE
There are three key methods for removing caffeine from regular coffee beans: The most common use a chemical solvent, another uses liquid carbon dioxide (CO2), and the last simply use water.
They take green coffee beans, soak or steam them until the caffeine is dissolved or their pores are opened, and then extract the caffeine from the green coffee beans.
While the CO2and water methods are considered chemical-free, the solvent method relies on synthetic chemicals such as ethyl acetate (naturally found in some fruits) and methylene chloride (commonly used in industrial applications such as in adhesives, paints, and pharmaceuticals).
The Swiss Water Process used to make the best decaf coffee, tends to produce the most flavorful coffee, Ristenpart says, because it’s good at removing caffeine and without stripping other flavorful compounds from the green coffee beans. But it’s also more expensive to use the Swiss Water Process to remove caffeine from coffee beans, and the process is difficult to produce at scale.
How much caffeine in decaf coffee is a question we are asked, and none of these methods scrubs the bean of caffeine completely? While the Food and Drug Administration requires that at least 97 percent of caffeine be removed from coffee beans, some decaffeinated coffees can still contain between 3 and 12 mg of caffeine per cup of decaf coffee.
DOES DECAF COFFEE HAVE CAFFEINE IN IT?
The answer is yes. Decaffeinated coffee has caffeine. Take a look at the chart above, you will see there is caffeine in decaf coffee, although negligible in brewed decaf coffee it can still be significant in decaf espresso. How is decaf coffee made? Thedecaffeination processdoes not remove caffeine entirely from the coffee bean and since the espresso-style brew has a higher rate of extraction due to grind size and temperature your best best is either hot decaffeinated coffee or cold brew decaffeinatedcoffee.
