Coffee oil

Aromatic oils are used in perfumery, cosmetics, flavoring of food, and in aromatherapy.

Coffee contains many aromatic oils, which we refer to as coffee oils. These oils give coffee the specific flavor and aroma, and they are extracted into the beverage during brewing. Coffee oils are relatively volatile, and they get lost as coffee beans get get older. Coffee oils also evaporate from the hot coffee. Over-extraction also causes the evaporation of the oils.
