Cocoa Lab Release Blog

Cropster brings roasting and quality control together for cocoa businesses

created by Paul B

For a few years now there has been a growing number of people in the specialty cocoa business using Cropster. Thus, with each release we've focussed on improving all the features & functionalities of our Cocoa products. Please read on to get all the details of the latest update in which we integrated two key functions for cocoa businesses.

Cropster has a Lab product specifically for cocoa businesses called Cocoa Lab which has been designed alongside top cocoa businesses. What is less well known is that there are also a number of cocoa businesses who use our Cropster Roasting Intelligence daily to roast their raw cocoa. These people have been working to get many of the benefits coffee roasters enjoy but, until recently they have been using a coffee focussed roasting tool to do it. With this latest release that is changing. In Cropster’s latest update for cocoa businesses we are bringing cocoa roasting into it's own and focus on integration for these customers. Cocoa is growing quickly and as the numbers increase it's clearly time to move on from a number of creative workarounds early adopters in the cocoa business have adopted. Where have we started?

Easier workflows for cocoa businesses with Cropster's new integration of
physical analysis & cocoa roasting

In our latest release for cocoa businesses, we've been focussing on integration. To improve the workflow, we've integrated two key functions - cut tests or other physical analysis and cocoa roasting. As of today, cut tests can now be done from within the same account as roasting. This means a single streamlined process for cocoa businesses, less workarounds and easier access to key information. It also means it delivers even greater access to all of Cropster's roast and lab features for cocoa businesses.
