How Do They Get the Caffeine out of Decaf Coffee Beans? Your Coffee Questions Answered

In its first episode, Craig Benzine explains how decaf coffee is made despite the difficulty inherent with the caffeine being part of coffee beans. Sadly, he never answers the bigger question of why anyone would ever drink decaf.
