Coffee Bean Destoners
During the coffee production process, beans go through various stages where they can become contaminated. Even with thorough sorting, some impurities can go unnoticed. That's where a destoner comes in — and you've got choices.
- A traditional destoner utilizes a combination of gravity, airflow, and vibration to separate the coffee beans from unwanted materials, with about a 60% success rate.
- A fluid-bed destoner removes stones by floating them over a bed of air, with close to a 100% success rate. Particles that are denser than the roasted beans sink to the bottom and stay on the screen for easy retrieval.
We favor the fluid-bed destoners, so we carry the AAE DeStoner (portable and classic). We think they're an essential tool for every coffee roaster, but it's also like that friend that always has your back. An AAE DeStoner safeguards against potential damage to your roasting equipment and preserves the taste and aroma of the final brew. With cleaner beans, you can achieve a consistent and superior flavor profile, resulting in a more satisfying cup of coffee for your customers.
