Does light exposure harm your roasted coffee? In the beer and wine industries, it is known that some compounds degrade when exposed to high energy light from the giant sustained nuclear fusion reaction that we orbit (that's the sun). Alpha acids in beer de-isomerize, leading to skunky 'lightstruck' tastes. Is there a similar reaction in coffee? Rest assured, things like this are on our minds. We're hoping to shine some light on the subject at The Crown.
