Ratings and Reviews
I fully agree that both the app and Danny are extremely helpful. It is really comprehensive in covering so many aspects of roasting coffee. But there is one feature that really brought me back after a year or so of using it, then a couple of years of not using it. It now generates, DURING A ROAST, a curve of any reading or setting that one wishes to time plot. In other words, at any desired moments, one can enter data that are read from any source, and the data will be graphed vs time. That is great for observing the progress of, for instance, beand mass temperature. (But you could also use it to generate a time plot of the outdoor temperature, if you so wished, though I haven't checked for the upper time limit on such a plot.) Some roasters spend a lot of time and money on fully automatic roaster control from their computer. This is for the simpler person like me who wishes to do things more manually, and get a nice 'feel' for things. It is also helps remind those like me who need to do certain manual things during a roast, but sometimes miss because of inattentiveness. I like it!
If you roast- you NEED this ap! UPDATE!
I wrote the first review for this app when it was released, and just did my 303rd roast with it. The features just keep getting better! Keep up the good work! Here's my initial review, for grinds and grins! ☕️
I was sitting at home this morning meditating on the full city+ Sumatra I roasted last night thinking, you know, I should make an app that let's you keep track of your roasts, so you can duplicate the art you just created the day before. I, however am not the programming type, so I figured I should see if there was "an app for that". Indeed, there is! This program is a must for any serious roaster. The UI is polished, and shinier than the finish of a French Roast out of the oven. It let's you track what kind of beans you have, how you have roasted them in the past, cupping scores, and stuff I never thought about, in a simple to use way. Now I can stop using my iPhone timer to keep track of what I consider vital information. Keep up the good work! And thanks for nit releasing a half-baked app!
Prior to the update over 800 roasts were logged in our cafe using this app. I was on the verge of abandoning roastmaster and had already installed both artisan and typica on an extra MacBook. The lack of a ROR curve was a primary factor. As a novice roaster I can use all of the data possible. Plotting the ROR post roast for analysis was tiresome and less helpful then a live read. This has been addressed.
Along with a whole lot more!
Expectations of the update were far exceeded. The roast analyzer is insanely rich with features that improve and enrich workflow. Building a profile pre roast is a welcome feature. I'm sure more will be discover as I continue to explore the new functions.
For now the iPad/iPhone will continue to handle the bulk of work in the cafe, handling transactions, managing inventory, playing music, running acaia coffee scales and roasting.
The one improvement could come from us, the user community. The unused forums at rainfrog could be an amazing place to share knowledge, collaborate and grow in our craft.
