What is Decaf ?
Wikipedia’s definition is ‘Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant of the methylxanthine class. It is the world’s most widely consumed psychoactive drug. Unlike many other psychoactive substances, it is legal and unregulated in nearly all parts of the world.
Decaffeination is the removal of caffeine from the source, such as tea leaves and coffee beans.
Does decaf contain caffeine ?
A common misconception is that there is absolutely no caffeine in decaf, however in most there is still a tiny amount left.
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) states that at least 97% of the caffeine needs to be removed for companies to label their products decaf.
Our fresh coffee is 99.9% caffeine free, so we can guarantee you will feel none of the effects of caffeine.
Pregnancy and decaf
Baby center tells us that when you drink caffeine whilst pregnant, it crosses the placenta and goes into the baby’s bloodstream. Your body can get rid of caffeine, however your baby’s body is still developing, and it will take a lot longer for them to process it. This means that they are exposed to the effects of it for a lot longer.
Therefore, it is recommended to limit your caffeine intake while pregnant. As our Mexican decaf coffee has such a low percentage of caffeine content (0.1%), it is a great option when pregnant for those who still want to enjoy the delicious flavour of coffee.
