Having the schedule is such an improvement, as are the improved RoR calculations. I love the new Roasting Intelligence layout.
The biggest new addition for us is to be able to see the roast schedule during roasting so we can prepare the next green beans for roasting. Just makes things so much easier.
Installation was a breeze and instructions were spot on. I loved the gas control. Indicators of flame volume by increments were also very helpful.
We use Cropster to record each roast that we do. We like the consistency we’re able to achieve with each roast using Cropster. We use it to record every cupping that we do. It’s really handy to go back and see what we scored a coffee from last year.
We use Cropster everywhere! It is an essential tool because it brings our coffee roasting to its perfection.
It's a critical part of all of our roasting operations. The integrated set of systems is pretty much a holy grail for us.
With Cropster, I can monitor all the processes that are going on inside the drum in real-time. If there is any deviation I can immediately notice it in the cup. The interface and features are constantly expanding.
It is very useful for me to be able to log everything, each roast, and all the details of what I am doing every day. The ability to compare every roast is very useful. I think it is one of the most important tools that a roaster should have in their roastery today.
You can't go back to other softwares, it is so well built, there is no need for anything else. At every point, you know what the coffee's data, such as density and moisture, development time, cupping notes, etc. It is the perfect tool to be a great roaster.
For me, Cropster is the best log profiling software. When I cup a coffee I can record everything in the app, it is a very useful tool. It helps with controlling every second of my roast and then I can review and save profiles I want to save.
We’re loving Cropster’s Order to Roast! It has completely changed the game for us. No more spreadsheets or mistakes on roast day. It was super easy to integrate with our Shopify eCommerce site, and takes about 2 minutes to import our orders, set a roasting schedule, and sync to Cropster’s profiling software. On the production end, we can easily see how many of each product to bag, as well as whether to ship whole bean or ground coffee. I don’t know what we’d do without it!
Having access to Cropster Cafe allowed me to communicate with my teams in Berlin whilst here in Seattle even with such a huge time difference (being 9hrs behind). I was able to gather up to date recipes and lots of information from my teams that allowed me to serve our coffees to the same standard we hold here in Berlin, on the other side of the world!
