The tools you need to run your coffee business

Mobile App

Origin Mobile App

An offline-first tool that allows users to record the weight of coffee received from suppliers at the mill or collection points.

Register suppliers

Register a new supplier on-the-fly directly in the app at the same time as you record the weight of coffee you receive from them. Suppliers can be pickers, fields, farms or communities.

Record weights

Record the weight of coffee received from each supplier. Identify individual batches based on harvest date, variety, farmer community, and more. This is the first step in creating fully traceable lots.

Browse batches

All batches that have been belonging to the current harvest are available to view from the app. The list is sortable, and batches that have not yet been synced may be edited.

Sync data

Upload your data when an internet connection is available. There are multiple failsafes to guard against data loss, and a sync log gives you an overview of all the status of all your uploads.

Help center

In the event you have any difficulty using the app, a built in help center allows you to contact support directly, send the raw data, and reset the app when necessary.

Supported devices

Works on Android and iOS devices.


Mill permissions

Managers or coffee collectors register batches linked to a mill (washing or drying station) where they are processed. Multiple users may be associated with a single mill.

Custom processing methods

Define how coffee will be processed. You can describe the process and control expected yield factors between states when coffee is weighed.

Supplier details

Capture supplier details; be they pickers, fields, farms or communities. This includes optional contact and location information.

Register batches

Record deliveries of coffee from one or more suppliers, usually in an unprocessed state, such as cherry. These are later updated with the dried volumes, and include details such as variety.

Batch division

Divide received cherry into separate batches based on quality. When dry weights are recorded you gain an overview of the proportion of ripes, underripes and overripes associated with each cherry delivery.

Yield factors

Determine yield factors between states of coffee. You can control the expected yield factors depending on the processing method, and override these for individual batches. Compare expected with actual factors after processing is complete.

Yield estimation

Estimate the amount of parchment and green coffee from each batch as soon as you start receiving cherry. You can use these estimates to begin assembling your lots even before drying is finished.

Update dry weights

After coffee is dried you may update the actual weights that resulted from a particular batch. This is used to calculate efficiency and guard against theft by comparing it to the yield estimation.

Batch groups

Group batches to create larger volumes that will be converted into a lot. Batch groups can be used to represent how the dried coffee is stored in the warehouse, and gives you an overview of your total volume by coffee type.

Convert to lot

Once coffee is finished with processing and stored in a warehouse, you can convert it into a lot. Lots inherit all the information from the batch group. Lots can be sampled, marketed, milled and sold.



Maximizing the quality potential of your coffee requires action before a batch is ruined due to poor drying or storage. You can view the entire history of the conditions during processing and anticipate which lots might be damaged before you present them to buyers.

Sensor notifications

Set target temperatures, humidity and/or air pressure for any sensor location and receive a notification if that measurement exceeds or falls below your given thresholds. With Cropster, you’ll know right away if something is wrong.

Sensor tracking

Keep track of an unlimited number of sensors and locations directly in Cropster and analyze that information against all other quality aspects of your business.

Sensor reporting

Create reports summarizing your AmbientSensor data and see where you need to adjust your roasting or your facility management to maintain the quality of your green coffee.

Warehouse sensing

Cropster’s AmbientSensors allow you to monitor exactly what is going on in your storage facilities 24/7. Track changes in temperature, humidity and/or air pressure over time and make decisions based on that data.


Track temperature and humidity during processing and storage. This helps you achieve perfect post-harvest handling and ensures no bad batches end up on the cupping table.

Real time view

Monitor the drying and storage conditions of your coffee in real time. Consistent quality means responding to problems before they occur, even in changing weather conditions. Just a few hours of too much heat or moisture can ruin your coffees’ flavor.

Automatic alerts

Automatically receive alerts if the temperature or humidity passes outside of your ideal range. You can predefine the minimum and maximum thresholds for each environmental indicator.
