The key to roasting great coffee lies in the ability to build on your recent triumphs and learn from your past mistakes. Index cards and roasting logs do a fair job of recording details, but Roastmaster puts that data to work for you in each roasting session — giving you the freedom to experiment and see your results in a real-time graph of your past and current roasting data.
Equipped with the optional Data Logging option and a supported Thermocouple, Roastmaster is a powerful automatic hands-free roast-tracker.
In short, Roastmaster is a digital toolkit for the home or professional coffee roaster...
It's a full-featured database that enables you to easily track, organize and quickly retrieve information about your beans, blends, roasts and cuppings...
It's a faithful roasting assistant with a smart timer — at your side during a roast, showing you vital details about past roasts, and the progress of the current roast...
It's a roast alarm — alerting you when your roasts are reaching important stages. Simply drag the interactive alarm marker around the roast gauge to set an alarm — no calculation necessary!
It's an inventory tracker — faithfully keeping your green bean database inventory in sync with your actual green bean supply — automatically. All you have to do it tell it when you buy more.
It's a profile library — maintaining a comprehensive archive of all your roasting profiles and programs, and the roasting curves they contain, linking this information to the graph in each roasting session.
Of all the things it does, though, Roastmaster's main goal is amazing coffee, and helping you to maintain consistency between roasts. It's equipped with a smart gauge that automatically displays the estimated time to first crack, second crack, or a pre-determined roast degree, based on the cumulative data of your past roasts. It also shows you this information in a live timeline, based on criteria you choose, complete with your first and second crack data, durations, and roasting curve data - both past and present.
Designed for both home-roasting enthusiasts and professional roasters, Roastmaster is always ready to help by launching context-sensitive knowledge base or help files from anywhere in the application.
Need to maintain multiple databases? Roastmaster has you covered! Those who roast for friends, family or work will appreciate Roastmaster's ability to keep all of this data and inventory completely separate.
So what are you waiting for? If you're tracking your roasts with a card file or notebook, chances are they aren't as accurate as they could be with Roastmaster.
