The purpose of this research was to find out the antioxidant potential of Gayo arabica coffee (Coffea arabica L.) extracted by Soxhlet method using n-hexane solvent. The characterization of arabica coffee powder oil includes functional group analysis using FTIR, oil component analysis using GC-MS and antioxidant activity test using DPPH reagent. The yield of soxhletation process was 9.09% with density 0.9240 g/cm3. The FTIR spectrum shows some functional groups with sharp peaks. Coffee powdered oil has many components of active compounds that have antioxidant properties such as methylbenzene, caffein, pentadecanioic acid, 2,3-dimethylbenzofuran, 4,7-dimethylindan and 1,2-benzenedicarboxylic acid, bis (2-ethylhexyl) ester. Gayo arabica coffee powder (Coffea arabica L.) has potential material as a source of natural antioxidant with IC50 value = 421.18 ppm.
