Abstract

The use of entomopathogen as a controlling agent is one way to avoid the negative impact of chemicals on the environment. In Indonesia in the 19th century the use of entomopathogenic fungi which is one of the important elements in biological control began to grow rapidly, especially on plantation crops. The combination of chemical compounds contained in coffee beans greatly affect the taste of coffee while the H. hampei attack can cause the defective coffee beans and also negatively affect the composition of chemical compounds contained in coffee beans, especially in caffeine and reducing sugar.
