A typical green coffee bean is composed of the following: 1.20% caffeine, 25% soluble flavor components, and 74% insoluble components.  With Swiss water process the water extracts the caffeine and the flavor solids from the bean. The beans are first soaked in water to prepare for the extraction process.  Then the beans are are immersed in the flavor-charged water. Initially the water is caffeine free, and as a result the caffeine diffuses into the water.  Since the concentration of the flavor components are equal, only the caffeine is removed and the flavor stays intact.  The water then passes through a carbon filter that traps the caffeine.  Now that the caffeine is removed, the water flows back to the beans to remove more caffeine.  The process takes roughly 8 hours until the beans are 99.9% caffeine-free.  The decaffeinated beans are removed from the water. They are then dried, cleaned, polished, bagged and shipped.
