    • MC PROCESS DECAFFEINATED
    • Methylene Chloride (MC), or KVW  (Kaffee  Veredelugs Werk), also called the “European Method” of decaf, is a decaffeination process that uses a solvent to decaffeinate coffee. Coffee is soaked in near-boiling water, then washed with methylene chloride (the MC particles bond to  the caffeinated molecules of the coffee), and finally the MC solvent is removed and the beans arereintroduced back into the liquid to reabsorb the oil/flavor of the beans. This decaffeination process, while using chemicals, has been deemed  safe by the US Food and Drug Administration.
