How much caffeine is really in decaffeinated coffee?

How much caffeine is really in decaffeinated coffee? Decaffeinated coffee has been in the news because, shock horror, it turns out that decaf coffee has some caffeine it. This has led to various over the top silly “news” website announcing the “scandal” that decaffeinated coffee contains some decaf coffee.

One of these new-fangled websites said:

“Something even the most seasoned coffee lover may not be aware of, though, is the fact that decaffeinated coffee is not, in fact, 100 percent caffeine-free. That’s right, folks: There is caffeine in your decaf!”

Frankly, these articles are not news worthy and the amounts of caffeine in decaffeinated coffee.

Decadent Decaf Coffee Company focused on roasting Swiss Water Decaf Coffee, so how much caffeine is in Swiss Water Decaf Process decaffeinated coffee beans? Read on!

Coffee decaffeinated using the environment-friendly Swiss Water Process is 99.9% caffeine free. Guaranteed. Indeed, the Swiss Water Decaf Company issues a Certificate of Analysis (COA) for every batch of beans decaffeinate using its chemical free water decaffeination process to a 99.9% caffeine free basis.

So, a typical 12oz cup of caffeinated coffee can be anywhere from 120 mg to 180 mg of caffeine whilst a decaffeinated cup of coffee of the same size has max caffeine levels just 2mg for Swiss Water Decaf. It’s miniscule.

In essence, the caffeine in a cup of single origin speciality Swiss Water Decaf is negligible.
