At the Specialty Coffee Exposition in Atlanta, the CSC Scientific product offerings received enthusiastic responses.

CSC Scientific Company, Inc. presented three new products at the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) 41st Exposition in Atlanta, during the second week of April 2009. Products to measure moisture and color in coffee were presented to the industry for the first time. These new instruments, together with coffee grind-size analysis equipment were the focus of the Company's exhibit.

Two new moisture products were shown. A hand held bean moisture analyzer was introduced to an eager audience of coffee growers and traders. The Coffee Moisture Pro is simple to operate and produces a readout of moisture and temperature in seconds. The instrument was so well received that all of the available items were sold by the middle of the show. Many of the growers were talking about the ability to take the unit into the fields and get an instant analysis of their crop.

The other new moisture instrument was specially designed for the difficult to measure high moisture levels often found in parchment coffee. The Coffee Moisture Probe is also battery operated and portable. The technology is very focused on this difficult high moisture coffee.

The Laser Color Track detects coffee color. Color is most important as a determinant in the quality of coffee roasting. The Laser Color Track is base on patented laser color technology. It takes prodigious numbers of reading from a coffee sample and develops an accurate map of the color. The tracking software, included with the instrument, relates the results to any of several industry reference standards.

Each year the SCAA showcases several dozen new industry developments. This year the Laser Color Track was judged The Best New Coffee Product of 2009.

The CSC exhibit area was a hub of activity and requests for these new products exceeded any previous SCAA show. The response to the Coffee Moisture Pro, the Coffee Moisture Probe and the Laser Color Track indicated that the focus of these instruments was on target for the need of many sectors of the Coffee Industry.

CSC Scientific Company, Inc. produces and distributes test equipment for the measurement of moisture, particle size, surface tension and color. It has had a concentration on coffee for over 20 years. To view the CSC product range for the coffee industry go to
