Coffee Science: Coffee Processing and Practices

Post-harvest practices are the subject of most of these coffee research papers, fermentation, drying coffee, roasting coffee and procedures to maximize quality

There is a lot here, everything post harvest. Articles on fermentation and drying abound.

There are specific articles from Brazil about studying local techniques and new advice around drying naturals in particular

I have included a short section of roasting science articles and presentations near the bottom.

This is one of 5 groupings of articles. Head back to the main Coffee Science page for links to the other sections!

I have collected over time from a variety of “open source” sites, shared directly with me, or other public archives. I am pretty fascinated with the research work focused on coffee and related issues. I am also not a scientist, economist or involved in Academia. I have an MFA!

If you are an author or are aware that any of these papers should not be available here, please contact me and I will respond promptly. I think it’s possible some work here that was emailed direct to me might not have been published for public access, but it’s hard to tell by the file itself. So please just communicate with us: [email protected] -Thompson

Coffee Roasting Science

Surprisingly there is less here as much roasting research is proprietary I guess. A couple of these are just slides from presentations, and not too sciency.
