Know your brews and your business

With Cropster Cafe you can improve and share brewing standards, track coffee quality, plus manage cafe-related tasks across locations, staff and equipment. It’s mobile ready, accessible from anywhere and includes full support from Cropster.

Actionable insights across your cafe business
  • Spot quality problems and take action quickly
  • Report brew consistency by time, parameter and/or equipment
  • Review cafe output, tendencies and overall performance
  • Tie brews to roasts, green coffee and origin information

Is your equipment reaching capacity? Why is brew quality inconsistent at one station? When is maintenance due? Cropster Cafe integrates brew data, recipes, sensorial results, roasts, staff, locations and equipment. Cafe specific reports give you the information you need, when you need it and before it becomes a real problem.  

I like the ability to share recipes across all our cafes and to constantly improve them with the help of all our baristas across all shops.
