The Colombian coffee beans are picked and soaked in a green coffee extract, where in time the caffeine transfers into the solution and removes it from the beans whilst still maintaining the flavour profiles. The coffee extract is then processed through activated charcoal to remove the transferred caffeine, ready to be reused again!
