Why is temperature so important?
Temperature varies the sensitivity of our taste and tactile receptors. High hot or high cold temperatures make our receptors less sensitive. There is a golden zone of temperature range where our receptors become most awake.This golden zone and peak also vary between each receptor; our hot tactile receptors peak sensitivity at about 45 degrees celsius. Our sweetness receptor speak around 37 degrees, and salt sensitivity peaks closer to 32degrees. These changes in sensitivity causes the same products taste to keep changing. You can use temperature as a guide to control or draw attention to certain aspects and moments in a coffee.
The Compass’ infra-red temperature sensor allows for precise and accurate readings while remaining out of the way of the beverage and user.
With its adjustable height, the Compass will fit a variety of different sized cups. Perfectfor mugs and cups designed for filters and espressos.
