SCA Podcast #19: The Science of Coffee Freshness

This week on the SCA Podcast, we feature a talk by Samo Smrke, Research Scientist at the Coffee Excellence Center of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences. Samo covers research he conducted in collaboration with the SCA on the effects of carbon dioxide degassing on coffee freshness and espresso extraction.

Research by Samo and his colleagues at the Coffee Excellence Center can be found in the SCA’s newly published Coffee Freshness Handbook, a publication that contributes to the body of scientific evidence on freshness in roasted coffee and serves as a practical resource for specialty coffee professionals.
