Removing caffeine from coffee

Removing caffeine from coffee

Coffee beans are first softened in hot water or steam. Then caffeine is dissolved from the beans by using a solvent such as methylene chloride, ethyl acetate, or a gentler solvent such as water itself.

Liquid carbon dioxide is a much more expensive alternative, but has the added advantage that it does not remove the flavour molecules.

The solvents used to obtain decaf coffee also remove some of the flavour molecules. These are then added back.
