Hi all,

 

So I am looking for a little help here please. 

 

I am working with a site that roasts coffee and I am preparing them for an audit/implementing a system.

 

They are looking to start calibrating the roaster annually, but would you expect to see this verified maybe daily or weekly using a calibrated master probe somehow? It is not a CCP but does make part of the recipe. 

 

Anyone have any thoughts here, or am I over cooking this?

 

thanks

Kate

We have two coffee roasters and that do not calibrate yearly - they calibrate every quarter. Is this a small production facility?


Kind regards,

Are you doing a food safety or Quality Certification?  To my understanding this would be a quality specification.  What happens if gets out of calibration?

Food safety, but the previous consultancy found this to be a CCP but i think more OPRP?

IIRC GMA issue a detailed publication on Validating (nut) roasters. Attached on this forum (somewhere).

Did the previous consultancy mention what hazard this CCP should address? Biological hazards would be hardly the concern here, so I would assume chemical hazard due to improper roasting hence the need to calibrate?
