Abstract
The author defines some of the principles involved in the preservation of coffee quality during storage. On relating these to the climatic conditions in Kenya, he explains why the indiscriminate use of natural air for ventilating coffee is undesirable.A system is described for selecting only suitable natural air, which uses a differential thermostat to control a ventilation fan.This will maintain coffee in a silo at as cool a temperature as possible for any given climatic region.It is hoped that this will preserve the initial quality of the coffee over extended periods of time.
