I don’t really trust the decaf coffee beans being sold by markets. Is it possible to decaffeinate coffee at home? do I need special equipment?
There is no practical way to remove whole coffee caffeine, but there are easy ways for lowering caffeine content:
- Use coarser grounds.
- Use Arabica coffee beans
- Flavour decaffeinated coffee with your favorite coffee beans
- Although dark roast and light roast coffee beans’ caffeine content are approximately the same but dark roast is a bit less in caffeine.
- Decease brewing time
- Try cold brew. Cold-brew caffeine content is lower than other coffee kinds due to its short brewing time
