cropster roasting


Innsbruck, Austria, 01 September 2021

The recently launched PIII series models by our partners Probat are 100% Cropster Control & Replay assist ready from the factory for all customers.

That means Cropster customers planning to buy or who already own a PIII series model can:

  • Read all key measurements used for roast profiling with our Roasting Intelligence
  • Control gas and also airflow of the machine directly via the Cropster interface
  • Replay roasts using Cropster’s Replay Assist semi-automation, as an option next to Probat’s built-in automation
  • Use Cropster’s AI-driven smart predictions for bean temperature, RoR, first crack and flick

How will you benefit from this integration?

  • Simple controls, full flexibility

With the full integration to the PIII series you can both control your machine and monitor the roast through the Cropster interface and replay a recorded curve. You can also revert back to the Probat control and automation whenever you’d prefer to do so.

The Cropster powered controls in the Roasting Intelligence are incredibly helpful as you can change your settings while keeping a precise eye on the curves at the same time.

On top I can use Replay assist to make my life easier! It is a perfect version of a semi-automatic function, leaving you in control at any time if you desire. Therefore, you can choose to leave the automatic mode when roasting a coffee you know by heart, and for more efficiency; as well as using a reference curve (that matches the characteristics of your green) as a springboard and modulate it as you go. -Jérémie Vergne- SAS Belco

  • Easy, plug & play setup

The goal of our machine manufacturer partnerships is to make the connection to Cropster simple, feature complete and stable for all Cropster users. Our standardized connectors ensure that you can just plug in a cable, confirm your machine setup and off you go. They are also fully supported by our support team.

I’ve really appreciated the evolution of the ease of installation. Today, an increasing number of machines are equipped to connect to Cropster in only a few steps and benefit from all the features instantly. A real “Plug and Play” solution.”-Jérémie Vergne- SAS Belco
