Moldy / Musty

Vietnamese Coffee Exporter

Moldy means unroasted coffee beans are stale; mold spores develop with a characteristic pale green or white fluff-like texture. Roasted coffee beans affected by mold have a distinct flavor called “Musty.”

Musty refers to the characteristic taste or aroma of mold. In coffee, a musty smell occurs when the beans are dried too slowly or stored in a humid environment that allows mold to grow.
