Within this course of action, various solvents are used which include chloroform, dichloromethane, plus benzene. However due to undesirable factors to be considered such as health and safety, it was substituted with a less hazardous method of extraction.

 

Within this approach referred to as filtering, coffee beans are submerged in standard water. After that the water which contains the caffeine together with various other substances undergoes filtration via activated carbon. Caffeine will be removed from this technique. The water filtrated will be brought back into the coffee beans. This will be let to dry out for the flavor to penetrate again from the coffee. The caffeine which was allowed to remain during infiltration can be sold to manufacturers of soft drinks.

 

Coffee with caffeine provides superior flavor and aroma compared non-caffeine coffee.
