Abstract
Opinion has been divided as to whether the unavoidable use of a polluted water supply in the factory has any effect on the res1.llting quality of the coffee. From the evidence available it could not be said that the use of stream water containing varying amounts of fermenting-tank effluents, pUlp-carrying water and possibly seepage from old pulp heaps always resulted in inferior quality or taint in the coffee; many down-stream estates, in fact, produce untainted coffee. This investigation was therefore arranged to find out definitely what was the effect, if any, of using polluted water supplies in the factory preparation of coffee. In later trials special attention was paid to the role of damaged beans in samples of coffee prepared by various methods.
