RoastLog vs Cropster?

Posted on April 30, 2012 at 1:32pm 0 Comments

We've been wanting to add a profile monitoring system like Roastlog or Cropster to our roaster. We gave both a good look at Expo last week but am still not quite sure which direction to go. There seems to be more similarities than differences.

Our primary uses would be for roast logging and profile monitoring. The cupping feature on Cropster would be useful, but it looks like Roastlog is working on that also.

Any opinions about preferences, functionality, etc. would be greatly…

You can go direct with any number of manufacturers. I would try to do one multi boiler machine like La Marzocco and go with another machine perhaps Rancilio or Astoria for a heat exchange machine. You will need to make sure you can sell in your area and see about training and support.
