Bacterial endophytic flora from Coffee arabica L. was screened and evaluated for caffeine degrading expts. Among the endophytes isolated bacterium belonging to Pseudomonas sp., exhibiting 98.61 % caffeine degrdn. 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 degrdn. 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 biodegrdn. of caffeine and also the possible role for these endophytic bacteria in the biol. of the coffee plant.
