Further Information: To prepare the beans for caffeine removal, they are first cleaned and hydrated with pure, local water; the beans are then introduced to an internally developed Green Coffee Extract (GCE), and caffeine removal begins.
The coffee is left to extract until the ratio of soluble compounds in the GCE to the compounds in the coffee reach the point of equilibrium. Caffeine and GCE flow continuously through carbon filters until all the caffeine is trapped and separated from the GCE, which is refreshed so that it can be used again and again to remove more caffeine. The process is monitored for around 10 hours until the coffee is 99.9% caffeine free.
