Title (EN) PRE-WETTING OF GROUND COFFEE PARTICLES
(FR) HUMIDIFICATION PREALABLE DE PARTICULES DE CAFE MOULU
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A process for pre-wetting ground coffee prior to extraction. The ground coffee is introduced into an elongated mixing zone where it is mechanically agitated while transported through the elongated mixing zone. An aqueous fluid is also introduced into the elongated mixing zone to wet the ground coffee as the ground coffee is transported through the elongated mixing zone. This causes gases to be released from the ground coffee. The released gases are removed from the elongated mixing zone. The ground coffee leaving the elongated mixing zone is uniformly wet and has little entrapped gas.
(FR)On décrit un procédé d'humidification préalable de café moulu avant extraction, lequel consiste à introduire du café moulu dans une zone de mélange de forme allongée, à agiter mécaniquement celui-ci pendant son transport à travers cette zone; à introduire également un fluide aqueux dans cette zone afin d'humidifier le café moulu pendant le transport à travers celle-ci, provoquant ainsi la libération de gaz à partir du café moulu, et à extraire ces gaz de la zone de mélange, le café moulu quittant ladite zone en étant humidifié uniformément et en emprisonnant peu de gaz.
