Brazil Paves the Way for Naturally Decaffeinated Coffee Boom!
– TASTE THE ORIGIN –
Naturally decaffeinated coffees are a big hit for coffee lovers who are sensitive to caffeine. However, there are not many stores selling these products on the market. Because growing them is quite difficult due to the lack of caffeine content, which reduces the pest resistance of these coffee plants. However, a group of researchers in Brazil conducted a series of studies on how to grow Naturally Decaffeinated Coffee. Currently, research is about to enter a decisive phase.

Brazil has undertaken a project to develop naturally decaffeinated coffee varieties
According to a new report by Market Research Future, the global decaffeinated coffee market is expected to be worth approximately $26.2 billion by 2027, following a compound growth annual rate is 4.45%. This growth attracts a series of scientists to promote research on naturally decaffeinated coffee varieties on a commercial scale. In particular, a series of large-scale studies on developing coffee plants with naturally low caffeine content were conducted in Brazil.
Market trends drive research into naturally decaffeinated coffee varieties on a commercial scale
This project was developed at the Instituto Agronomico de Campinas (IAC) – the oldest coffee research center in Latin America. This research institute has played a key role in Brazil’s rise as a coffee powerhouse, providing over a third of the world’s commercial coffee. To develop the project, IAC compiled and used the gene bank at the research institute’s facility. Then, they crossed potential Arabica varieties to create plants and coffee that naturally produce very low amounts of caffeine.

Research on naturally decaffeinated coffee is entering a decisive phase
IAC said researchers have been pursuing the project of developing low-caffeine coffee plants in Brazil for more than 20 years. Currently, the project is entering the decisive phase. Specifically, naturally decaffeinated varieties developed from research have begun to be planted around different growing regions in Brazil. According to the São Paolo state government, after the coffee cherries are harvested, the research agency will begin to evaluate the possibility of producing on a commercial scale certain coffee varieties. However, the official results still have to wait two to three years until the coffee matures and has its first harvest. Researchers believe that the prospects for growing and expanding low-caffeine coffee varieties are promising.
Research into growing and expanding naturally decaffeinated coffee varieties is reaching its final steps
Based on the forecasts of project experts, coffee with naturally low caffeine may soon appear and popularize on the market. To receive the earliest information, follow 43 Factory Coffee Roaster’s news channel!
