can also use decaffeinated coffee if you prefer. Decaffeinated
coffee is made by soaking the unroasted green coffee beans in a
methylene solution until 97% of the caffeine has leached out.
The remnants evaporate at 104 degrees Fahrenheit during the
roasting process. Look for Swiss water-process decaffeinated
coffee if you are at all concerned about the use of chemicals.
Very hot, high pressure water and charcoal filters are used in
the Swiss process. Although it is a more natural method, there
is some flavor loss.
