Improving coffee extraction

A US company has developed a new coffee grinder that allows users to control the average grind size and introduce a percentage of smaller particles or "fines", into the grinding process to improve coffee extraction characteristics. Specifically for pod producers, the system allows for an increase in the extraction time, packing density and amount of froth created during extraction without ruining the optimal flavoUr profile. For all coffee producers, the system keeps coffee temperatures low and increases grind consistency, achieving a better end product.
In addition, the company also recently launched the Model RT ("Real Time") Coffee Granulizer. The Model RT measures ground coffee size and density immediately upon exiting the grinder. This eliminates the need to capture samples, perform lab analysis and make manual adjustments.
With the Model RT, producers can increase product consistency, reduce "off-spec" material and improve coffee characteristics.
The company is a leader in coffee processing equipment and also offers pharmaceutical grinding equipment.
