Cropster users have been able to add roasts manually by entering important values like duration, machine, start and end weight, etc. for years. With our new Roast Designer recreating curves from other systems is even simpler. You can add all the key data about your roast and instantly get presented with a beautiful curve that you can edit and adjust easily.
All of our existing Cropster users also have access to this powerful new Roast Designer and can now modify existing curves that were created automatically by Roasting Intelligence 4 (RI 4). There are practical and creative reasons users have asked for this feature. You may want to modify your curve when the start time wasn’t detected correctly or you might have forgotten to edit the duration time in the RI immediately after the roast was finished. This happens to the best. ;-) Life is now a little easier as you can change the duration of your roast within C-sar now. In only a few simple clicks you can adjust your curve making it easier to compare to other curves. Plus, a calculation in the background updates your curve automatically, which means your curve still looks beautiful. Another use, you can also add or edit comments and decide if they should be displayed on your curve or not. A very useful feature if you’re working with another person or a team.
It seems like a small feature, but we're already working on adding more functionality to the new Roast Designer. A little teaser: an importer is on the works so you can upload files and create your roast curves even faster. Stay tuned and keep an eye out for the next update! In the meantime, we'd be happy to hear your feedback. As you know, collaboration is key here at Cropster and we love working with coffee pro's around the world to make your life in your coffee business easier. If you have any thoughts about this new feature or ideas that we should look into for future updates, please let us know.
