Coffee trends fuel increased demand

One of the most popular beverages in the world today is coffee. In the U.S. alone, 60% of consumers drink coffee daily, more than any other beverage, including water. As evidence of its popularity and reach, coffee varieties and trends have increased. These include nitro coffee (coffee with added nitrogen gas), adaptogen blends, or alcohol-infused coffee, with variations even extending to the exotic mylks or m*lks used in specialty coffee drinks, which are generally plant-based stemming from soy, almonds, hazelnuts, or coconuts, to name a few. Projections show coffee growth to continue with an anticipated CAGR of 5-7% over the next five years.  

Gently convey coffee materials from beans to powders

The moisture content of a dried, processed coffee bean ranges from 10-12%. This makes beans brittle and sensitive to shock, vibration, or changes in humidity. Ground coffee’s fine texture also renders it a delicate material that requires careful handling—hundreds of coffee roasting and packaging facilities around the globe trust Cablevey for gentle coffee product conveyance. A tubular drag conveying system significantly reduces product damage to minimize the waste of delicate coffee beans and other coffee products.

Maximize productivity while maintaining product quality of green coffee beans, roasted beans, ground coffee, and powdered (soluble) coffee with a tubular drag system conveyor. Choose from among our 2-, 4-, 6- or 8-inch diameter systems depending on the desired volume of up to 80,000 lbs./hr. Solid circular discs attached to the central flexible steel drag cable, staggered at precise intervals, push the product through the tube without air or excessive force for gentle transport.
