It's here, It's here!!! May I introduce my new Coffee equipment, Voice Systems Technology's LAB Coffee III, 4th Generation Refractometer! It's beautiful and it's all mine!!
While refractometry almost instantaneously raises concerns for some, much of it can be traced back to misinformation. A Refractometer is a tool that measures the deflection of light as it passes through something, in this case Coffee.
In a nutshell, this device helps us figure out things like our Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in the Coffee. With that, we can figure out the amount of flavor extracted. No it can not taste for you, but when dialing in, it CAN help point you in the right direction, with greater speed and accuracy, than your palate alone. - 6 days ago
