  • Abstract

    Bacterial endophytic flora from Coffee arabica L. was screened and evaluated for caffeine degrading experiments. Among the endophytes isolated bacterium belonging to Pseudomonas sp., exhibiting 98.61% caffeine degradation. The bacterium was capable of growing luxuriantly when caffeine was supplement as a sole source of carbon and nitrogen. Induced cells were capable of degrading caffeine. This is the first report on any endophytes being evaluated for caffeine degradation. Obtained results are promising enough and can be an alternative method for existing conventional methods employed in caffeine removal. Further study in this area will give an insight on the facile route in biodegradation of caffeine and also the possible role for these endophytic bacteria in the biology of the coffee plant.
