CDR CoffeLab analyzer for controlling fermentation processes, for defining the chemical profile of green beans, roasted coffee and the drink.

Determination of caffeine in the coffee production chain

Caffeine is one of the most famous neurostimulant in coffee. This substance is part of the alkaloid family and regulates numerous biological reactions, some positive for the body, others responsible for side effects.

The quantification of caffeine in the coffee beverage is crucial, especially in the production of decaffeinated products in which the concentration is regulated by low (<0.1 g/L).

Analyzing caffeine in coffee: why it matters

The analysis carried out on green coffee allow to assess the quality of the product, to evaluate its organoleptic potential and its chemical characteristics. This will allow making the right choices in the following roasting phase and evaluating its conservation over time.

Method

Test Principle

Caffeine is extracted from the coffee through an appropriate solvent. After centrifugation, the extract is read spectrophotometrically and the absorbance of the sample is correlated to the concentration of caffeine.
