The International Milling Directory (IMD) is always interested in its clients’ technology. Modern Process Equipment has over fifty years of experience in precision coffee grinding, and its machinery is industry-leading.
As anyone who’s brewed a cup of coffee can tell you, flavour extraction is a tricky art to get right.
Brewing with capsules, pods and pads has become a significant business in recent years, and with this change in delivery comes a change in grinding. A traditional brew takes four minutes for flavour to be extracted from the coffee particles. With a coffee pod it takes 20 seconds.
To extract flavour this quickly requires incredible precision in manufacturing. Too coarse, the particles are too large and 20 seconds will produce a weak, tea-like brew. Too fine and you get the opposite problem, a bitter and unpleasant taste.
Grinding these beans is like walking a tightrope: the key to success is in balance and control. Walking in a straight line is not particularly difficult, but doing so on a rope 40 feet off the ground needs all a specialist’s skill and precision. MPE grinders provide the proper balance between coarse and fine coffee particles, while achieving the right density for the perfect single cup brew.
With the MPE family of capsule grinders, users can actively monitor and adjust roll position, temperature, density and output rate, all in real time. The superior technology of MPE grinders provides the precision needed to walk the tightrope, every morning.
