Hub Blog Release

Hub Tag! Remember that coffee and EVERYTHING about it!

created by Ines K

That's a bold claim, but Hub’s latest feature is a big one! And we believe that claim holds up. Hub now connects your real world coffee work directly with the online world.

If you have a smartphone, you have everything you need. You simply pull it out and scan the coffees you are interested using your smartphone's camera an any QR code reader it has installed (or built in with iOS and some newer Android phones).

Hub Tag simply helps you remember interesting coffees!

The best part? Once you scan the QR code you can add your own evaluation. Choose from a quick: yes, no, maybe; Plus, thanks to the notes section you can remember anything you noticed during your cupping. Easily add your own flavor notes or any other comments you think will be useful about the coffee and you are good to go. Another highlight, you can even add the coffee to your wish list on Hub (remember, Cropster users are already members of Hub and anyone can simply register for free - it takes seconds to set up). Finally, you can simply enter your Email address and you’ll get all the details and your own notes about the coffee(s) you are interested in sent to your inbox. This means that you can easily share all the details with your team straight away or go back to all the ratings you've made in your Hub account at any time. BTW - your email address is not shared with sellers, that way the decision is completely yours regarding the sellers you want to get in touch with and when.

Evaluate the coffees you're interested in and add flavour notes easily & quickly

 

Set up a cupping session with Hub Tag quickly & easily and get feedback from your buyers!

If you are a green coffee seller using Cropster Hub Tag to present your coffees in the real world (as well as online) you can get near instant feedback on the performance of your coffees. You’ll see which coffees buyers are interested in and how many buyers at an event are interested. With this latest release, you can now get clear and professional labels for a cupping event of any size. Set up a cupping session at origin, at your roastery, in your lab, at a trade show, etc. Simply print your coffee labels in a few clicks. Just head to "Manage coffees" on your overview page on Hub, select your coffees and print the labels. Each label now automatically includes a unique QR-code so anyone at your event can scan, evaluate, save and share your coffees in a few simple steps. Not only will you improve the buyers cupping experience but also make sure they have complete information about your coffees saved to their inbox.

Get beautiful labels for any cupping with a few simple clicks and connect your buyers directly to all the coffee details automatically!

An added bonus - get feedback on the flavor notes you’ve added to your coffees. You can see how many people agree that your coffee “natural lot 1” tastes like “caramel”, “dried fruit” or “cherries”. (the number next to the flavor note indicates how many cuppers agreed). You can also learn about new flavor notes if cuppers have added something and critically, if you are roasting multiple times you can learn a bit about consistency of your roasts/sample roasts based on this information.
