Moisture Meter?

Postby JackieBillings on Thu Jul 29, 2010 7:29 am

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good, entry level moisture meter? Nothing too fancy... we're a small company and just looking to measure the moisture content of our green over time.

If looking for green coffee moisture only, I've heard positive things about the Moisture MAC, but have not used it myself. We use a Sinar 6060 for both green and roasted, which works great.

The cheapest and easiest way to measure moisture levels over time that I have found is simply filling a beaker full of green beans and then weighing the result, repeat the process as frequently as desired and note the variations. it does NOT give you a percentage of moisture but the costs are equally negligible.
