Decaffei Nation

Concern with the physiological effects of coffee prompted early consideration of ways to decaffeinate the product. The first commercial plant was established by the firm Kaffee HAG in Germany in 1906 and in the United States a few years later. The U.S. plant was expropriated by the government during World War I, terminating production of decaffeinated coffee in the United States until 1932. Only one brand was available until the mid-1950s and solely as the instant product. Consumption later increased rapidly and in 1997 accounted for 35% of the instant product and 12 to 14% of ground roasted coffee. Decaffeinated tea appeared on the market in 1978. In 1997 it accounted for approximately 15% of leaf tea consumed in the United States and 20% of pure instant tea.
