How can we measure the humidity in our beans and alter that humidity if it
is needed?
I live in a very humid climate (NC) so I have not worried with beans drying
out as one might expect in an arid zone. My greens may even be absorbing
some humidity. Most of the time, my 1Cs are clear, but occasionally
something like this Harar comes along.

I have taken wimpy beans form 30% to 65% and the difference was dramatic.
1st went from wimpy to dramatic & made the resulting finished roast
considerably more flavorful.
Seems to be easier to control the roast.
I now monitor moisture as part of the process.
