In order for coffee to qualify as decaffeinated, it must have at least 97% of its caffeine removed.
Maragogipe processors use safe methods to remove caffeine, namely Swiss water. A few different techniques are available, and understanding them may help allay your concerns about coffee contaminants. Coffee beans are decaffeinated by softening the beans with water and using a substance to extract the caffeine. Water alone cannot be used because it strips away too much of the flavor. The goal is to extract the caffeine with minimal loss of flavor. Substances used to remove the caffeine may directly or indirectly come in contact with the beans, and so the processes are referred to as direct or indirect decaffeination. Coffee beans are soaked in water to soften them and dissolve the caffeine.
