Four types of green coffee beans (Robusta and Arabica) were roasted in a laboratory roaster and in an oven. The samples were analysed for acrylamide using liquid chromatography with UV detection. Significant difference in acrylamide content was observed in different coffee types. Robusta coffee beans, roasted to different degrees of browning contained more acrylamide than Arabica varieties. Roasting time and temperature had a great influence on the acrylamide formation in coffee beans. Coffee beans roasted for longer time had less acrylamide. Additionally, coffee beans roasted at higher temperatures contained less acrylamide compared to those roasted at lower temperatures.
