What process does HOPE Coffee use for Decaffeination?

We believe that the reason our Guatemalan Decaf coffee tastes so good is not only because we start with high quality beans from Guatemala, but also because we use the MC Process for decaffeination.  We often hear, “This is the ONLY decaf coffee I have ever thought tasted good!”  The methylene chloride process is thought by some in the coffee industry to maintain coffee flavor better than other processes.  While the FDA regulation allows for up to 10 parts per million (ppm) of residual methylene chloride, the actual coffee-industry practices result in levels that are 100 times lower than this amount.
