Does A Temperature and Humidity Data Logger Need To Be Used For Coffee Bean Storage?
The answer is YES absolutely. Green coffee is extremely porous and easily absorbs flavors and aromas, which means it’s important to be careful during storage and transportation. Producers, buyers, and roasters shouldn’t overlook factors such as humidity and temperature. Freshliacne BuleTag series bluetooth temperature and humidity data logger can monitor environmental factors during the transportation and storage of coffee beans in case they go bad.
In many parts of the world, growers only harvest coffee once a year. After the bagging process, growers ship the unroasted coffee to their customers, who store the green beans until they need them for production. To avoid mold growth and other quality losses that occur with time, coffee should remain in a climate-controlled environment. Coffee storage experts agree that humidity and temperature are among the most important variables.
The ideal temperature range for coffee storage is 20-25°C (68-77°F). Temperature impacts coffee by modifying water activity inside the bean. Changes in the energy status of the water molecules in coffee can affect flavor and freshness. In some conditions, vast fluctuations in temperatures can cause condensation inside a bag of coffee, which can ruin coffee. Similarly, studies have shown that environmental humidity, the measure of how much moisture is in the air, can affect coffee by traveling in and out of bags of coffee. Too much humidity can also cause mold or mildew growth, ideal relative humidity (RH) is 60%.
