RoastRite has developed a new, more affordable product for roasters looking to understand roast degree better. The RoastRite Coffee Roast Analyzer!
First though, a quick video that shows the comparability between the RA-710BF model, aka RoastRite Coffee Roast Analyzer - BigFoot Edition, and the well-known Agtron M-Basic II. Here we also tested the measurement results consistency of both machines:
Now, introducing the RoastRite RA-710BF! It comes with a special aluminum alloy carrying case that when packed with all accessories, weighs in at only 2kg (4.4lbs), making it lightweight and easy to travel.
The Tiffany Blue Analyzer uses only 2 AA batteries for on-the-go use. With no warm-up period and no need to calibrate each time you power on, the RA-710 is always ready to go!
The BigFoot extension works to reduce measurement errors due to uneven sample surfaces and silver-skin, making the final result more stable.
The BigFoot extension is powered via a provided Micro USB cable which comes with an included wall adaptor. Interchangeable US and UK regulation AC adaptor heads included as well so there's no need to by another travel plug!
The aluminum level and scrapping cards have the SCA defined Roast levels and names for your easy reference.
Other assorted accessories: Calibration disc, Cleaning brush, Bean ring
Testing Coffee Beans
Creating a flat surface without gaps is almost impossible with whole coffee beans. The BigFoot extension works to eliminate this issue with a 9cm diameter sampling area, reducing the potential for a few gaps to affect the end result. Check out a quick demonstration here:Testing Coffee Grounds
After you have tested your coffee beans you can see the inner roast levels by checking the roast level of your grounds! Just grind your beans to your usual fineness for cupping. Then, as it is easier to get a flat surface with coffee grounds, take the base cup and fill it with a mere 20 grams. Check out some of our other tips for using your RoastRite Analyzer:
More consistent, less waste, easier to use; the RoastRite RA-710BF will be your next best friend! (After your roaster) Why use an Agtron?http://www.roastrite.com/
