The transfer kinetics of three labelled compounds (butanal, 2-phenyethanol, isoamyl acetate) was studied from a liquid medium into the coffee beans during simulated wet processing using four media (M) (M1: contained dehulled beans, M2: contained demucilaginated beans, M3: contained depulped beans, M4: contained depulped beans with yeast). Trials were carried out at 25 °C, under agitation and for five time periods (0, 6, 12, 24 and 48 h), and then the labelled volatiles were analyzed by SPME-GC-MS. The three labelled molecules were transferred into the coffee beans with different mass transfer rates; reaching at 12hrs in the M4, 0. Read More
