Moisture, colour and density were determined in a total of 574 samples of monsooned coffee periodically drawn from different grades and lots at different curing works in 4 different seasons. The range of values for all samples for moisture, colour and density were 8.8-16.8%, 11.0-34.0 (y-values), and 0.66-1.12 g/ml, respectively. The studies revealed that it is advisable to keep the moisture content of monsooned coffee at a level less than 14.5% in order to prevent mould growth during storage.
