The decaff process

The decaffeinated coffee beans process using the MC Decaff method. MC stands for Methylene Chloride. This is a transparent and sweet liquid.

Firstly Colombian and Peruvian coffee beans are steamed.  Steaming causes the caffeine to move. From the innards to the outside of the green bean.

Secondly the MC is applied and removes the caffeine. The coffee is then re-steamed to remove any remaining Methylene Chloride.

Further the decaffeinated coffee beans are dried out. Prior to roasting in the usual way.

As an aside MC evaporates at anything up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Coffee is roasted at 350 to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Therefore very little is left behind.

Moreover the solution is ideal. Because it leaves the majority of the flavour in place.
