How do They Decaffeinate Coffee?

There are several methods of decaffeinating coffee, but generally it starts with the green, unroasted bean and either steaming or soaking in water for a period of time. Once the beans are steamed, they are then rinsed and thrown out. New beans are added to the liquid and soaked or steamed again until they are 99.9% caffeine free. The decaffeinated beans are then dried and processed for sale. To find more information click here:
