How Does San Francisco Bay Coffee Get Decaffeinated?


Water Extraction Process

1

Green coffee beans are soaked in hot water to open the pores of the bean


2

The opened pores allow the oils, flavor, and caffeine to flush out of the bean and be taken to filtration


3

Carbon filters remove the caffeine. The flavor and oils are taken back to the soaked beans


4

Oils and flavor are reabsorbed and the beans are dried and polished to be ready for roasting

San Francisco Bay Coffee exclusively roasts Arabica beans to provide the best tasting coffee. Our standard is to remove more than 98% of caffeine during the decaffeination process. No chemicals are used in this process at all.
