Roastmaster’s Prime Mission.
Helping you learn, hone and improve each roast – that’s what it’s all about.
Roastmaster gives you the means to store all types of information about each and every roast. This ensures you have the data you need to replicate that roast any time in the future. Paired with good cupping data, your past roasts become a road map in the analyzer – an easy way to see what’s working and what isn’t.
You might only need track roasted weight and crack times. You might go further and save your roaster control settings as they change over the course of a roast. You might have demanding needs and want a comprehensive way to track custom roaster settings along with multiple control curves and probe-bound temperature curves – targeting one of your own custom profiles.
Whether your needs are simple or complex, Roastmaster ensures this data is there for you to easily build on in future roasts. Track as little or as much as you like – it’s all about flexibility and fitting into your own custom workflow.
Track and store the following details of your roasts:
- Roasted items and weight of each
- Customizable Roaster Settings
- Roaster Profile
- Roaster Program
- Resting Ambient Roaster Temperature
- Line Voltage (for Variac users)
- Roast Duration
- Onset of first crack
- Onset of second crack
- Environmental Temperature
- Environmental Humidity
- Final Roast Degree
- Agtron Number (for Agtron Inc. tiles)
- Recent Blends
- Recent Cuppings
Roastmaster’s roasting console provides sophisticated tools for finding, viewing and targeting the data you want to match in a roast.
The console graph is equipped with a smart selector strip. Criteria buttons provide an easy way to find similar roasts in your past roast library to target. If you’re looking for specific roasts, you can select those manually instead.
As your library grows, you can create custom profiles from your best roasts – suited for any type of bean, and target those in future roasts instead
Starting a roast is a simple as pressing the start button in Roastmaster as you start the physical roast.
You can add curves for recording control or temperature data beforehand so they’re ready to record data – then worry about the other details as you roast. Profiles and programs offer several workflow enhancements to make setting up a new roast a two-tap affair.
Entering data is a breeze. Basic roast details are entered in the familiar iOS table fashion. Crack times are entered via dedicated crack buttons. Curve data is entered by simply tapping the digital readout. The value you enter will be recorded in the selected curve at the current time in the roast, and the graph and analyzer will reward you by showing your data as it evolves – overlayed on your target data for easy comparison.
Whatever your target, the Analyzer makes sticking to it a simple affair. Customizable deltas, differential temperature projections and interactive data provide sure-fire ways to keep your roasts on track – no matter what you’re targeting.
Integrated cupping data makes it fun to switch target modes and browse past roasts as a roast progresses – looking for patterns and ways to experiment in the current roast.
Roastmaster offers many different tools to help you gauge a roast’s progress and provides alerts for preset control curve changes. You can even set custom alarms for a reminder during a roast.
When the roast is complete, make sure to cup it!
Break the crust, brew a pot or pull a shot. Whatever cupping means to you, it’s the best way to ensure your roasting efforts are reaping a reward as you continue to build your library.
Cuppings can be easily browsed, and found by several criteria. More importantly, though – cupping data is integrated in the Roast analyzer graph. This is the best way to identify which roasts stand out above the rest – either by browsing cuppings or browsing the data of past roasts in the roast analyzer.
