Arabica coffee has been classified for trading according to the New York Board of Trade (NYBOT) green coffee classification. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the physiochemical and sensorial characteristics of coffees classified by NYBOT as NY2 (specialty coffee), NY3/4 and NY4/5 (commercial coffee). The density of green coffee was higher for the NY2 sample. The amount of total solids in brewed coffee increase as the green coffee grade decreased and the pH levels decreased as the coffee grade decreased. Descriptive analysis using a 15cm line scale was carried out by 12 trained panelists prepared by espresso coffee and consumer preference tests were carried out by 168 consumers. The NY2 sample had the highest fruity, acidity, sweetness and aftertaste characteristics. In addition, green, rio, sour and astringency characteristics increased as the coffee grade decreased. Acceptance of aroma, flavor, taste balance and overall were higher for the NY2 sample. In the consumer preference test, the NY2 and NY4/5 samples had a similar distribution, but consumers between the ages of 20 to 30 who like to drink brewed coffee more than instant coffee preferred the NY2 than sample over the NY3/4 sample. In conclusion, significant differences were observed among the three groups of green coffee classification in all physicochemical and sensory parameters.
