How decaf coffee beans are created
Ever wondered how decaf coffee beans are created and how caffeine is actually removed from coffee beans? We are huge fans of the Swiss Water decaf process as it is 100% chemical free, environmentally friendly and keeps the beans tasty. The process only uses coffee, water, time and temperature to decaffeinate the coffee.
A coffee bean consists of many compounds. However, only the soluble compounds including caffeine can be dissolved by water. So, the biggest challenge is removing caffeine without removing the other tasty soluble compounds.
The Swiss Water process uses a clever ingredient - the caffeine deficient green coffee extract concentrate called Green Coffee Extract (GCE). Think of the GCE as supercharged water which is packed with the coffees’ solubles however deficient in caffeine - the solubles minus the caffeine.
When green coffee beans are immersed in the supercharged water (GCE) which is already packed with solubles however deficient in caffeine, the caffeine moves from the coffee bean into the super-charged water. The end result? Decaf coffee beans – with all the tasty flavour but without the caffeine hit.
Happy caffeine-free sipping!
