Coffee, along with tea, are the two most consumed caffeinated beverages in the world. Coffee is primarily known as a morning drink that people consume to start their day. The popular belief that coffee provides energy to start your day is steeped in the fact that it contains a fair amount of caffeine. Lately, coffee has gained more popularity than ever as a social drink, the world over, mainly because of host of chain and non-chain coffee shops that provide gourmet and specialty coffee drinks.
The objective of this Special Issue is to publish original research and review articles on the various as aspects of coffee. The main aspect that this issue will try to address is the phenolic compounds and other antioxidants present in coffee and their health implications, if any. The effects of various stages in coffee processing on composition and aroma generation is another area that this Special Issue will also try to address. Finally, this issue would like to provide readers with information on the impact of processing on the sensory properties and consumer acceptability of coffee.Dr. Koushik Adhikari
