Caffeine in decaf coffee

Decaff coffee is not actually entirely caffeine free

You may be wondering: just how much caffeine is in decaf coffee anyway? Is decaf coffee caffeine-free or does it just contain a reduced amount of caffeine?

Although decaf coffee (decaffeinated coffee) has gone through a process of decaffeination to remove the caffeine, decaf coffee is not actually entirely caffeine free. To be labeled as decaf, coffee must only meet the international standard of being 97% caffeine free (EU standards are stricter at 99.9%).

The Arabica coffee bean contains about half of the caffeine content of the Robusta bean and is thus more suitable for making high quality decaf coffee. There are rare types of Arabica that naturally have very low caffeine levels as well.  But in any case, every glass of decaf coffee you drink is going to have a minimum amount of caffeine.

The NESCAFÉ range of decaff coffees has very little caffeine

If you’re looking for a decaf coffee with very little caffeine, look no further than the NESCAFÉ range of decaf coffees.

Although there are numerous ways to decaffeinate coffee, NESCAFÉ uses a natural water decaffeinating process in several countries to retain the smooth taste and aroma that is unique to NESCAFÉ. That means, with NESCAFÉ decaf, you’ll get the same “coffeeness” that you’d get in a caffeinated coffee.
