What computer requirements do I need to run Cropster?

Cropster runs in Windows, Mac and Linux environment. The web platform can be accessed through any web browser.

Does Cropster work with my roaster?

Cropster works on any drum roaster or barrel sample roaster. The Cropster data bridge (RI box) connects to the temperature sensors of your roast machine (both ungrounded thermocouples of types K, J, T, E or RTD Pt-100/PT-1000 probes). 

Data, Security & Integration

Who owns the data?

The data is yours. Anytime. This is secured by our privacy policy.

Do I get my data back if I want to quit using Cropster?

Yes. You can export most data directly from your Cropster account as a csv file.

How secure are my inputs?

Whenever your data is in transit between you and us, everything is encrypted, and sent using HTTPS. The same standard that banks use.

Can I export data from Cropster?

Cropster provides many reports that let you export data as excel or pdf file. Among these are inventory (by green lot and location), roast output (by profile or green lot), quality results and many more.

How is my data protected?

All data is written to multiple disks instantly, backed up daily, and stored in multiple locations. The data is stored on our own servers to which only authorized personnel has access.

Features & Functionalities

How easy is data input? What data do I need to input manually?

We try to make data input as easy as possible. Roast monitoring, storing, organization and inventory adjustment happen automatically. Green coffee needs to be put in manually, but there are bulk features that make your life easy. Bulk cupping features make it easy to tie quality results to your roasts and green coffee.

Does Cropster handle multiple users and workers?

Yes. In your Cropster account you can handle multiple users. Invite them via email and they get a login to your account. As admin you can give them different permissions to view and edit information. Besides users, you can also manage workers like roasters and cuppers. They can, but don’t have to be users of your Cropster account. Workers help you trace who roasted which batch and to calibrate your cupping panel.

I sometimes have bad internet where I roast. Can I roast offline?

Yes. Keep roasting with the RI even if you are offline. Roasts are stored locally and synced to the server when you go back online. However, we recommend having a more or less stable internet connection where you roast to get most out of Cropster.

Can I trace processes between roasting, green coffee and cuppings?

The Cropster platform is based on integration and traceability between processes. Any process or processing result can be linked between the according steps of the coffee between origin and cup.

Can I connect my multi-barrel sample roaster?

Yes. The Roasting Intelligence visualizes up to 4 sample roaster barrels on one screen with only one piece of hardware. Read more on our blog.

Does Cropster handle multiple locations like roasteries or warehouses?

Yes, and all processes between them are fully traceable. Transaction reports visualize any movements between them. You can manage roasteries, warehouses or even virtual warehouses for e.g. contracted coffees.
