Product information "ATAGO PAL-COFFEE (BX/TDS)" For a barista, the refractometer is an essential tool in making the perfect cup of coffee. Making coffee is science. Is the coffee not too weak or too strong, too bitter or too sour? Many factors play a role in the formation of taste: the amount of coffee, the grain size, the freshness, the water (hardness), the temperature, the contact time, etc. And yet we all want a nice cup. By measuring the Brix value, which can be used to determine the degree of extraction, the refractometer gives an indication of the acidity/bitterness of coffee. This is a reliable way to reproduce the same taste again. 

With the help of the ATAGO PAL-COFFEE refractometer, the concentration (Brix) can be easily and accurately determined. A few drops of coffee on the prism and after starting the value can be read in seconds with two digits after the comma. The PAL-COFFEE is also available in 2 other versions: TDS scale or TDS/Brix scale. For iOS users, there is even a free app to download (MY COFFEE RECIPE-ATAGO). We will give you a free product instruction at Amsterdam Coffee Lab! Recommended add on products are: Pipets, alcohol wipes and distilled water drop bottle.
