Spotlight on Origin

This decaffeinated coffee is made using beans sourced from Central America. Coffees from throughout Central America are used interchangeably to ensure taste consistency year in year out.

Methylene chloride is a solvent used in the direct decaffeination of coffee beans. The methylene chloride process is thought by some in the coffee industry to maintain coffee flavour better than other processes. Based on extensive research data, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that methylene chloride is safe for use in coffee decaffeination. While the FDA regulation allows up to 10 parts per million (ppm) residual methylene chloride, actual coffee industry practice results in levels 100 times lower than this amount.

Expert Answers

If the hot water removes the caffeine from the beans, why are they then soaked again in a solution with a solvent.


The hot water is used to open the pores in the beans and allow the solvent inside, the caffeine then dissolves into that solvent before it is washed off
