Odors - Beans which have been stowed in the same compartment as goods which give off strong odors may retain the smell. Once the coffee has been contaminated by odorous goods the smell may remain throughout processing.
Loss of Color and Weight - Often beans lose their color without external interference, but this is in no way to be considered as damage. It is usual in the trade for contracts of sale to bear a clause to the effect that color cannot be guaranteed. Beans have a natural loss in weight. It is therefore necessary to note the delivered weights of a representative number of sound bags so that a comparison between the average delivered weight of a sound bag and one with apparent shortage may be made to determine any loss by pilferage or leakage.
