How Does Moisture Content Affect Coffee Roasters

Jun 10, 2019There is no official standard for ideal moisture content in green coffee, although the ICO recommends 11% as a good target. However, it's commonly accepted that 10-12% is a reasonable range. Anything less than 10% is likely to result in loss of cup quality, while humidity at higher levels begins to create a risk of mold growth.

Influence of moisture content on physical and mechanical

Abstract. This study aimed to investigate the influence of moisture content variation on 12 mechanical properties of the Cedrelinga catenaeformis species. Of the 12 properties, four were significantly affected (based on analysis of variance at 5% significance level), and the compression and shear strengths in the direction parallel to the fibers exhibited the greatest difference in values from

When a soil is fully saturated, water will drain easily into the underlying unsaturated rock. When such drainage stops, the soil still retains capillary moisture and is said to contain its field-capacity moisture content. Further drying of the soil (e.g. by evaporation) creates a

Wood Moisture Content

Wood moisture content between 0% and about 28% is dependent upon the relative humidity (RH) of the air. As the air's RH increases, so does the moisture content of any wood exposed to the air. Wood exposed to air with a RH of about 90% will reach a Wood Moisture Content of about 20%. Above 90% RH or 20% WMC, mold can grow on the wood.
