What is Decaf Coffee
Decaffeinated coffee, or decaf, is exactly what it sounds like: coffee without caffeine. Well, that's mostly true. Decaf coffee does have caffeine in it that is natural to coffee beans, but the percentage is so minuscule that people often drink it with dessert so it won't keep them wired before bedtime.
How is decaf coffee made?
To make decaf, one has to remove the caffeine from the coffee beans. This is always accomplished by using water while the coffee bean is still green and unroasted. First, the raw beans are steamed, then rinsed with a solvent that is meant to remove some of the caffeine. Afterwards, there are several different water-based procedures the beans go through including a Swiss Water Process to absorb caffeine out of the coffee beans, and a Triglyceride Process where the coffee beans are marinated in oils made from coffee grounds before being dried and roasted.
