There are many ways to decaffeinate coffee, but most K-Cup® pod roasters use the Swiss water process. Caffeine is a soluble compound, and with the aid of carbon filtering, the caffeine is removed while the oils, flavors, and aromas remain. The process begins with beans that have not yet been roasted (some call them green at this stage due to their color).
According to this article in Medical News Today, decaf coffee poses no health risks, “Is decaf coffee bad for you? Caffeine content and health benefits”. That is to say, the coffee itself is harmless but, several coffees on the market use chemicals to decaffeinate their products. There is a concern as to whether or not these chemicals are harmful.
Yes, but don’t worry, it’s not much. There is usually about 7 mg of caffeine left in an 8 oz cup of decaf. For comparison, there is about 95 mg in a regular cup of coffee. Read this article to learn how much caffeine is in Keurig® K-Cup® coffee.
