Let us give you some more information on the decaffeination process used for the specialty top coffees. It is quite fascinating.
Sparkling water (CO2) decaffeination process:
This process was discovered by Kurt Zosel at Max Planck Institute in 1988. Natural carbon dioxide ( which comes from prehistoric underground lakes) is combined with water to create 'sub-critical' conditions which creates a highly solvent substance for caffeine in the coffee. It is gentle, natural and organically certified process and good caffeine selectivity of the carbon dioxide guarantees a high retention level of other coffee components which contribute to taste and aroma.
