The roasting characteristics of different grades of coffee, viz. triages, bits and blacks belonging to Arabica and Robusta varieties, Plantation B and Plantation CT grades as well as cherry coffee, have been investigated with special reference to finishing temperature, colour, roasting loss, water extract and organoleptic quality. The roasting characteristics of the coffees have been found to differ from grade to grade ; the optimum range of finishing temperature for different grades is indicated. The beneficial aspects of blending Arabica and Robusta varieties are discussed and the importance of test roasting of different grades of coffee before blending or roasting is stressed.
