The CM-100 Plus Coffee Roast Color Analyser allows you to classify the roasting degree (or delta) between whole bean and ground to better understand the roasting curve and end result. The goal is for better quality control, whether you're a coffee roasting vendor, coffee shop owner or passionate home roaster. The CM-100 Plus supports fast key, has high accurate measurements, works on long hours (up to 6 continuous hours of use), and is easy to carry and store.
The CM-100 Plus is the latest version of the Coffee Roast Colour Analyser, and comes in Black, with red infra-red LED lights.

Using the CM-100+ is simple:
1. Fill the tray with whole beans or ground coffee.
2. Using the metal ruler, ensure the coffee is evenly spread and as level as possible.
3. Once the CM-100+ has warmed up, select your application (ground or whole bean) and place CM-100+ over the coffee.
4. Then press enter. You can rotate the device at 90 degrees to check an average of measurements.
The CM-100+ measures the roast by both colour and the distance between the light sensor and the surface of the beans. If you are experiencing inconsistent readings on the CM-100+ even after calibration, ensure that the beans are spread evenly in the dish. The beans must be at a consistent height and width within the dish and must not exceed the height of the dish. We suggest using a ruler (as shown above) to evenly spread whole beans and ground beans to achieve a correct reading.
The CM-100+ plays a crucial role in cupping standards, as delineated by SCAA. Click here to read the specifications.
