  1. Dear Rich,

    I’m a fellow coffee fanatic and recently came across your site. I operate a coffee gear blog where I discuss coffee makers and coffee gadgets. The site is targeted towards a more general audience, and I’m always looking for resources to point readers toward. I think my visitors would be interested in Coffee Troupe.

    Would you be interested in doing a link exchange? I can give Coffee Troupe a link on my blogroll, which would appear in the right column of every page.

    All the best,

    I looked up Probatino. Nice unit

    Questions: Are probes installed right now? Is there a control unit connected to probes?

    Any appropriate probes could be connected to a datalogger such as the Omega HH506RA. Probes are pretty generic as they are analog devices.

  3. Hello,

    We are vacuum packing the ground coffee to retain its freshness. But Im having problem
    with loose-packing after storing it . Is 24 to 48 hours de-gassing process enough to get rid of it ? Hope you can enlighten me on this matter.

    Thank you,


    1. The question is are you grinding? Ground coffee is degassed in 12-24 hours. If you are doing whole beans they will degas for a week. That is why almost all vacuum packed coffee is pre-ground
