What is decaffeinated coffee?

If you love everything about coffee except the caffeine, try a delicious cup of decaffeinated coffee!

What is decaffeinated coffee?

Exactly what it sounds like! Coffee is considered decaffeinated or “decaf” when 97% or more of its caffeine is removed. An average cup of regular coffee contains between 70 and 140 mg of caffeine, while an average cup of decaf contains 0 to 7 mg of caffeine.

So while decaf coffee isn’t caffeine free, it has much less caffeine than its regular counterpart.

Why drink decaf coffee?

For many coffee drinkers, enjoying a cup of joe in the afternoon is simply not possible - the late day jolt of caffeine can have a significant effect on sleep. For many others, reducing caffeine intake is necessary for their health.

Drinking decaf means you can still enjoy a delicious cup of coffee without worrying about the effects of caffeine. In fact, since coffee beans are decaffeinated before they are roasted and ground, decaf coffee has the same nutritional value and delicious taste as regular coffee - you really are not missing out!

How does coffee become decaffeinated?

Caffeine is water-soluble, so producers use water to remove caffeine. Two of the most common methods of caffeine removal are the solvent method and the Swiss Water method.

The solvent method involves washing the coffee beans in a chemical solution. To speed up the process, additional chemicals are added.

The Swiss Water method uses natural green coffee extract, a carbon filter, and time to remove the caffeine. This helps keep more of the flavour, is more environmentally friendly, and does not use chemicals on the coffee beans.
