- The caffeine is then removed through the use of dichloromethanol, a solvent whose low boiling point dissolves the caffeine and is easily removed through evaporation, leaving almost no trace on the roasted beans
- Once the caffeine has been removed, illy repeatedly tests the final product, ensuring extremely low levels of both dichloromethanol and caffeine – as well as ensuring a cup of coffee that even an expert couldn''t tell was decaffeinated.
- The decaffeination process uses illy''s best blend of 100 percent Arabica coffee, certified by Qualite France
- The process itself is certified by the Det Norske Veritas
