Abstract: Roasting is the process where volatile organic compounds (VOCs), responsible for the aroma of a cup of coffee, are generated. This strongly depends on the type of coffee being roasted, as well as on the time-temperature-profile of the roasting process. Proton-transfer-reaction time-of-flight mass-spectrometry (PTR-ToF-MS) allows examining directly and in real-time the formation of the VOCs during the roasting process itself, and in particular of the VOCs responsible for the flavor. In this study, different roasting profiles to a medium roast degree were monitored for five different coffee origins: Arabica from Columbia, Antigua (Guatemala), Djimmah (Ethiopia), Yirga Cheffe (Ethiopia) and Robusta Malangsari (Indonesia). Clear differences in the VOC formation can be seen between Robusta Malangsari, Arabica from Middle America and Ethiopia; only minor differences are observable between Arabica from Columbia and Guatemala. Off-line analysis of the respective coffee brews revealed the differences in the cup, including HS SPME GC/MS for aroma analysis.
