Coffee in Nicaragua

Today, coffee remains a key Nicaraguan export, and it was a significant economic force throughout political instability in the 20th and 21st century. However, despite its status as an established origin with a coffee sector that employs more than 330,000 people, the country’s economic growth is expected to fall by 5.9% in 2021, largely as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Decaffeination Process

The methylene chloride (MC) decaffeination process is relatively simple. The coffee beans are moistened with water and MC is circulated throughout. The MC binds with the caffeine in the bean and extract it while leaving most of the other flavor compounds. After the desired caffeine level is reached, the MC residue on the beans is removed by steaming them.
