Values for modulus of deformity of coffee (Coffea arabica) fruit at different maturity stages, named by their coloration as 'green', 'verdoengo' and 'cherry', were determined in this work. The values were obtained for the product compressed along three different directions and submitted to different compression speeds. The speed influenced the value of the fruit modulus.
