In the U.S., decaffeinated coffee has a guideline that requires 97% of the caffeine to be removed from a green coffee bean. This guideline, as opposed to the standard, provides coffee roasters and manufacturers more flexibility in terms of the percent of caffeine removed. However, in Canada and the international community, 99.9% caffeine-free is the recognized standard for decaffeinated coffee based on the maximum caffeine level remaining allowed in a decaffeinated green coffee bean.
The coffee is decaffeinated using the environment-friendly SWISS WATER® Process and undergoes regular caffeine level audits to ensure compliance to 99.9% caffeine-free. We take pride in setting high quality standards and have a Certificate of Analysis (COA) for every batch of coffee beans we decaffeinate with our water decaffeination process.
