Moisture Meter for Coffee & Cacao Bean
Moisture range for coffee bean: 0 ~ 22% Moisture range for cacao bean: 0 ~ 18%
Technical Strength & Key Points: MD-CC is a professional 2 in 1 moisture meter that can measure themoisture content of any type of coffee & cacao beans quickly andaccurately. Equipped with programmed IC control that ensures highaccuracy and provides direct read-out of percent moisture in seconds. Covering from 0~22% of moisture for coffee beans and 0~18% forcacao beans. Moisture content of the beans have great impact on storagelife as well as in establishing parameters for acceptable levels ofmoisture in the beans they buy. This meter is a compact, handy unitsupplied with accessories, in a carrying case. It is housed in a robustcase, shaped to protect the large dial and controls. It comes with afree universal measuring cable for connecting the electrodes to themeter, a free universal electrode holder that accepts almost allinterchangeable electrode heads and a free 9V battery as its source ofpower supply.
Usage & Applications: Measuring the moisture in coffee is done at almost every stage ofprocessing, from the time it leaves the farm to the time it ends up ina brewing machine. With the advent of the specialty and gourmet coffeeindustry, quality control has become more precise. Laboratory grade orhighly accurate equipment such as MD-CC is now used to measure moisturelevels in just seconds. Moisture levels also shed insight in toimproper storage or, "old inventory". Moisture analysis is one of themost important factor in creating an excellent cup of coffee, harm thefreshness of coffee, storing coffee and cacao beans, fermenting anddrying cacao beans, and even in seeding cacao. Like for green beanmoisture should be measured upon receipt not only to ensure it'squality, but also prior to roasting. Lower moisture roasted beans havelonger shelf life, but 5% moisture is believed to be the best level forgrinding, which also has a great deal to do with the final cup taste,especially in the growing Espresso Market.
