Managing Profiles

This manual explains how to create a single origin Profile and manage Profiles.

Managing Profiles is available for the following products

The following manual and screenshots refer to the Roasting Intelligence (RI5).

In case you previously used the Roasting Intelligence (RI4) we kindly invite you to check the newly improved features of RI5.

To upgrade to RI5, please download the Roasting Intelligence (RI5).

Why use Profiles?

In Cropster we use the term Profiles to refer to the recipe you use to create your final product. 

The method of roasting can be compared to cooking. To cook a delicious meal you need a recipe, which is your Profile in this case. The recipe gives you the ingredients and also the instructions. 

Profiles allow you to track each roast based on how you roast them. Additionally, within a Profile, you can set a Reference Curve.

Creating a Profile

There are three types of profiles in Cropster:

  1. Single origin Profile
  2. Pre-roast blend Profile
  3. Post-roast blend Profile
