Methylene Chloride (MC)

The only difference between decaf coffee and regular coffee is most of the caffeine has been removed to make wholesale decaf coffee beans. Methylene chloride is the traditional method to decaffeinate bulk coffee beans. Coffee beans are washed in a solvent, and when the solvent is removed, the result is decaf coffee beans. The caffeine is removed while maintaining the coffee bean’s flavor oils.


Decaf coffee is short for decaffeinated coffee. Decaf coffee comes from bulk coffee beans that have had approximately 97% of their caffeine removed. There are several ways to remove the caffeine from wholesale coffee beans. The most common methods use water, solvents, or carbon dioxide.

In the methylene chloride (MC) method, the solvent is added to unroasted coffee beans and the solvent bonds with the caffeine in the coffee beans. When the solvent is removed, the caffeine is removed with it, and the coffee beans are considered to be decaf coffee beans. The amount of caffeine will vary between different coffee beans. A cup of decaf coffee contains anywhere from 0-7 mg of caffeine, and a cup of regular coffee contains between 70-140 mg of caffeine.

When buying bulk coffee beans from Java Bean Plus, rest assured that all decaf coffee beans are always decaffeinated before roasting. After the caffeine is removed from the coffee beans, the next step is carefully roasting the decaf coffee beans.
