Measuring pH Level of Coffee

Q.Why measure pH level of coffee?

Coffee beans are originally mildly acidic (acidity level depends on the type of coffee bean). Because almost 99% of coffee is water, its flavor and taste change depending on the pH level of water used.


Q.How does pH level of water affect coffee flavor and taste?

Because coffee beans are originally acidic (around from pH 4.8~5.1), acidic water makes finished coffee sour. On the other hands, alkaline water makes finished coffee milder. The pH level of coffee can be utilized to better understand your own coffee and make the best coffee by adjusting the type of water.


There are many pH meters in the market. But why is ATAGO PAL-pH so special?

With PAL-pH, measurement can be done much easier and quicker!

pH series

Q.What other meters are used for coffee?

Brix%, or TDS% of coffee is a useful parameter to manage quality of coffee. ATAGO offers three different models for coffee control. PAL-COFFEE (BX) measures the Brix% of coffee, PAL-COFFEE (TDS) measures the TDS% of coffee, and PAL-COFFEE (BX|TDS) measures both the brix% and TDS% of coffee in one device.
With two decimal points of resolution, you can find even slight differences in flavor and taste. For daily use, the PAL-COFFEE series also offer thes NFC data transfer function.
