Leif An Coffee director + Q-grader, Stereoscope Coffee Company Los Angeles Leif loves: The Atago digital handheld pocket refractometer PAL-COFFEE "I chose the Atago model digital handheld pocket refractometer PAL-COFFEE because consistency is key as a coffee roaster. It's small enough to fi t in my pocket to carry around anywhere while being consistent enough to use for quality control. Less coffee to test by tasting means more coffee I can drink and actually enjoy." Kate Seward Owner, Form & Function Boise, Idaho Kate loves: Demitasse spoons "Effi cient precision is the name of the game. In order to most accurately portion our espresso and minimize waste, we started using an espresso spoon to scoop tiny amounts of ground coffee out of the portafi lter to make sure our dose is exact, every time! It was a small thing (get it…) that made a big difference! Waste went down, and accuracy went up. That's my kind of combo." e PHOTO BY AARON JACOBI 82 barista magazine
