Q: How is the caffeine removed from this product?

A: Hi there,

Many thanks for your query.

Cafe Direct use the Methylene Chloride method of decaffeination, the process is as follows :-

What is Methylene Chloride?
Methylene Chloride is a colourless liquid with a slightly sweet aroma. It has a boiling oint of 104°F.

How is it used to decaffeinate green coffee?
The beans are treated with steam in order to draw the caffeine from the iner bean to the outer surface area. Once this has been done, the solvent (Methylene Chloride) is applied directly to the beans, removing the caffeine. Steam is again applied to the coffee, driving out residual solvent. Then the beans are dried and roasted just like any other green coffee.

Why is this method supposed to be so good?
Methylene Chloride is a selective solvent, removing only the caffeine and wax from the beans, leaving the coffees flavour intact.

Does any of the chemical remain on the bean after the decaffeination process is complete?
Minute traces. Methylene chloride evaporates at 100 to 200°F; beans are usually roasted at a temperature of 350 to 425°F and coffee is brewed at 190 to 212°F. Any amounts of methylene chloride left in brewed coffee would be less than one part per million.

I hope this helps.
