The Specialty Coffee Association (SCA), a body merged from EuropeanSpecialty Coffee Association (SCAE) and American Specialty Coffee Association(SCAA), promotes using infrared analysis to assess the degree of coffee roast. Themethod used is called an Agtron number. A lower Agtron number indicates a higher caramelization and a deeper roasting degree. On the other hand, a highernumber would indicate a lower caramelization and a lighter roast degree. Thisquantitative way can assist roasters in determining the degree of coffee roastmore precisely which is a great aid for them in managing the quality andconsistency of their products.This product is a professional precision instrument for measuring the degreeof coffee roast. It is suitable for both coffee beans and ground coffee. This productprovides a user friendly interface with an excellent quality exterior. The built in optical technology complies with the SCA Roast Color Classification System whichenables a coffee roaster accurately measuring the coffee beans Agtron numberand the roasting degree name.
Agtron numbers are defined as two scale expressions designed to meet thespecific needs of different types of coffee roast.
Agtron Commercial Scale: This was originally defined as a roast scale, developed primarily for largecommercial plants, corresponding to the carbide ratio of soluble organic m a t t e r,in order to evaluate soluble coffee in the form of dehydration. The measuringvalues ranging from 0 to 100, indicates deep to shallow degree. However, as themarket evolved, this type of measuring method is gradually replaced by othermeasuring equipment that turned to the primary use of assessing the degree of roasting. Agtron Gourmet Scale: To meet the development of better roast machine performance and moreextreme market roast demands, this higher resolution scale was born. This scaleis typically ranging from 0 to 133, which has a wider measurement ranges thanthe Commercial Scale.Most products on the market now are fixed with Gourmet scale. Dipper meter supports both scales and can be selected on demand, in order to meet a widerrange of application needs.
