Whitepaper: Color measurement of roasted coffee using HunterLab spectrophotometers

1 June 2015  •  Author(s): HunterLab

Coffee-White-Paper-final-1_This study was initiated to validate the use of color measurement spectrophotometers (visible spectrum spectrophotometers) for determining the roast color of coffee products. Although color measurement devices traditionally have been the method used to evaluate the degree of coffee roast, Near-infrared (NIR spectrum) instruments have recently become more prevalent in the market and have created some level of confusion with end-users. This study will demonstrate that visual spectrum spectrophotometers can be used to accurately determine the roast color of coffee products and provide additional advantages over NIR instruments.
