Coffee is one of the tops consumed drinks worldwide. Trends in drinking coffee becoming a lifestyle. Mainly driven by executives who want to take a sip of coffee during their work, or creating a neutral zone to negotiate with business partners, all those and plenty other reasons give the boost to the coffee’s value.
But in a cup of high-quality coffee, there are moisture-related problems potentials such as mold that potentially ruin the day. Let’s start to trace it back from the cup of coffee, back into the factory, back into the sea freight shipment of the coffee bean, and eventually from the farm.
Coffee bean commonly processed by using the dry method or the washing method. Generally speaking, the washing method used for higher quality grades. However, the washing method would tend to be more prone to the moisture problem, as the coffee bean itself is highly hygroscopic.
Coffee beans commonly packed in a jute bag, as it’s cheap and easy to pack and stack. The ideal moisture content of coffee beans before shipment is 12% at maximum, as it will be safe to transport as per coffee’s attribute in its equilibrium moisture content.
NordicDry has been running hundreds of container testing. NordiDry learned that during the sea freight shipment, it might be exposed to high temperature during shipment, and start to release the moisture during the day. On the night time, the colder air can only hold fewer water molecule, thus the remaining will start condensing and likely dripping into the jute bag. This would cause a higher probability of mustiness and mold growth.
NordicDry is the solution to prevent mustiness and mold growth on the coffee bean during the sea freight shipment, as NordicDry will absorb the humidity inside the container.
