Our collaboration with SCAE and the University of Copenhagen engages us in several research activities. From our office at the Department of Food Science, numerous research ideas are created ranging from the field of arts and sciences, behavioural economics, food chemistry, biochemistry to sensory and consumer sciences.

Loring Smart Roast: Sensory profiling and aroma analysis of coffee roasted without oxygen
Anne Bech Risum: Aroma analysis of coffee treated with different processing methods
Primarily a method development project, with a focus on sampling of coffee volatiles for GC-MS analysis. Sampling methods using various combinations of dynamic headspace (DHS) and stir-bar-sorptive-extraction (SBSE) are tested and evaluated, as well as the optimum sampling time for SBSE sampling. Based upon the results, a preferred method is chosen, which is then used in a study of the effect of different processing treatments on the aroma profile of roasted coffee.
Julie Ohrt Jensen: The influence of water quality on aroma profile of coffee studied using NMR and GC-MS.
In an earlier study of coffee brewed on different types of water a sensory difference was observed. It will be interesting to investigate the differences by analysing the aroma profile of the coffees.
Sarah Kofod-Nielsen: From coffee cherry to the final brew – effects of processing on coffee aroma and taste explored by instrumental and sensory analysis.
The processing method used on the particular coffee is important as it effects the taste and aroma profile of the final coffee. The aim of this thesis is to elucidate the effects of processing methods – going from the coffee cherry to the final coffee – on the aroma and taste properties. Other factors such as country of origin will also be taken into account. The taste and aroma profiles will be analyzed using NMR, GC-MS and a sensory panel. Based on these analytical data effects of processing will be explored by multivariate data analysis.
