Topic: Robusta beans colour (6 msgs / 99 lines)
1) From: Rubens Gardelli
I've noticed a very big difference of colour between robusta and arabica
green beans.
All the robusta beans I bought were whitish while arabicas were greenish.
Were all the robusta beans I bought very old crops or is it a robusta colour
characteristic?
Best regards,

It is very possible the robusta you bought is old. I have some nice robusta
from India and they are dark green.

I still have some Indian Monsooned Malabar AA Gold. They always looked gold,
but they roasted to a normal color. They appear in espresso blends from
reputable sources. Just start out pale yellow or gold, lacking most of the
blue component that makes normal unroasted beans look green.
Guess the eye sees RGB, but the 4-color printing process uses Cyan, Magenta,
Yellow and Black halftone separations. Just the artist's palette? Go figure

It's the difference between additive and subtractive synthesis, Ray.
With the black thrown in both because of the limitations of practical
inks/dyes as well as cost savings.
