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.
