Mmmmmmmmm Wake Up And Smell The Coffee With Roastmaster

We all know how serious the US and indeed many parts of the world are about their coffee. Buying coffee beans just does not cut it, now you need to roast ’em, and roast ’em good.

That’s where Roastmaster comes in, this app is a digital toolkit for the home coffee roaster. Roastmaster is 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.

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 super-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 even shows you this information in a live timeline, based on criteria you choose, to let you know when its time to quench the roast.

This is a universal app for use on both iPhone/iPod Touch as well as iPad. It retails for $9.99/£5.99 and you can pick it up here.


Designed for both novices and home-roasting pros, Roastmaster is always ready to help by launching context-sensitive knowledgebase or help files from anywhere in the application.

Need to maintain multiple separate 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. Simply flip the logo over to change databases on the fly.

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.
