Produce great coffee

Tools to help the specialty producer achieve excellence

Cropster Origin is a complete information management system for coffee producers. Record raw cherry delivered to you with the Origin mobile app, monitor drying and storage conditions with Cropster AmbientSensors, and use built-in cupping and green grading tools to ensure consistent quality. This data is easy to share with clients. Origin delivers more control, greater efficiency, and ultimately more profit from your coffee production.

Mobile app
Capture coffee weights
  • Record weight of coffee received from suppliers
  • Separate coffee into batches based on harvest date, variety, farm, and more
  • Select processing method and estimate yield
  • Works offline on Android and iOS devices

Designed for wet mills and drying stations, the Cropster Origin App is an offline-first tool that allows managers to record the weight of coffee received from farms, fields, or pickers. This information can be used to estimate yield, encourage lenders to extend credit, and/or guard against loss from theft or mishandling. It's also the first step in creating fully traceable coffee lots.
