Try this guidance document for sampling protocol and design your own system.  It may take some time but most of your criteria are not terribly difficult to evaluate visually:

Sanitation & Transportation > Defect Levels Handbook

 

I don't test for moisture but perhaps somebody can speak to the concept of drying the beans completely in a low temp oven (200 deg. F) and weigh the difference to determine the moisture that was left when you began.

DEF safe food!
