Coffee is a set of colors that are based on the color of coffee beans and variations of brewed coffee. Coffee beans are the pit of the cherry of the coffee plant. The beans are naturally a yellowish green but turn brown during roasting due to a process known as a Maillard reaction whereby amino acids and sugars react to produce flavorful compounds known as melanoidins that give coffee its distinctive taste. Roasted coffee beans are often a dark brown with tinges of red, orange or green. Brewed coffee is perceived as black but is actually a very dark brown. Coffee colors are commonly perceived as classic, urban, rich, warm, honest and conservative. This is rare amongst brown colors that are mostly perceived as earthy, rustic and natural. The following are common coffee colors.
