Rice is one of the most important food crops for many countries around the globe. Around 60% of the world’s population depends on it for daily sustenance, especially in the East and Southeast Asian regions, where it is a dietary staple. Unfortunately, even though rice is regarded as such, a large portion of it still goes to waste due to challenges in post-harvest handling and management.
The moisture content of coffee beans can determine the resulting quality of a brew. This is why it’s important to make sure that each batch of harvested coffee has just the right moisture content, which is recommended to be at around 11.5% when the beans are ready for storage and shipping. Considering that various circumstances such as climate and altitude in different regions of the world would also affect coffee’s moisture content, it’s essential to take note of the proper way of handling the beans in all the stages of processing.
