College. Coffee comes from a shrub-like tree that grows in almost any soil and prefers the climate between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. The coffee tree bears flowers, ripe fruit, and unripe fruit at the same time. For many, coffee is first and foremost the favored source of caffeine. 1.1.1 Effects of Processing Beans Two seeds or beans are found within the fruit of the coffee tree. The first step after harvesting is to remove these beans from the fruit. This is done in one of two ways; by dry processing or by wet processing. Wet processing is much more expensive although it is not true that dry processing always leads to an inferior product. 1.1.1.1 Roasting coffee beans Roasting is the most critical and difficult stage in processing coffee.

Do not rely on software to do your proofreading—automated features may not work as the user intends.  Pagination. Check all pages in thesis, from beginning to end, one at a time to ensure that no pages are missing and that all pages are numbered consecutively. (Title page is page i; first page of main text is page 1.) All pages other than the copyright page (if included) and the title page should display page numbers.  Proofread the title page by itself for spelling errors.  Verify that the title and degree on the title page match the title and degree recorded on the Thesis/Dissertation Approval (TDA) form.  Proofread the Table of Contents by itself for spelling errors.  Check the chapter titles and section headings (if included) that are listed in the Table of Contents against those found in the text. For each title or heading, first check that the page number listed in the Table of Contents is correct. Next, check that the wording, spelling, and numbering of the title or heading listed in the Table of Contents exactly matches that found in the text.  Check the items contained in a List of Figures/Tables/etc. (if included) against those found in the text. Perform the same check as for the Table of Contents. Repeat check for each List.  Check the headings found in the text. Go through all chapters and chapter equivalents (e.g., Bibliography, Appendix, etc.) and verify that all chapter titles are formatted consistently, that all main-level headings are formatted consistently, and that all sub-level headings are formatted consistently.  Check figures. Turn through the pages of the thesis from beginning to end to verify that figures are numbered and placed consecutively and that all pages of multi-page figures have a “Figure x.x (cont.)” label.  Check tables. Perform the same check as for figures.  Check margins. Finally, look through the pages of the thesis one last time to make sure that no material in the thesis (other than page numbers) extends into any of the margins. For student’s use only—this form will not be turned in. Use of this form does not guarantee that no changes will be requested by the Graduate College Thesis Office.
