Get a jump on learning, profiling, and buying

Before your production roaster is even ordered, you can use the IKAWA to begin learning about flavour, roasting, and cupping. And begin to purchase your first coffees.

Enrol in an online live SCA Foundation Class from CoffeeMind that uses IKAWA to get a jump on learning to roast.

A time and money saving roastery companion

We've seen small roastery employees doing everything from order intake, production scheduling, roasting, packing, and more.

To keep quality up, ensure you’re buying the best coffees, you need to spend a lot of time cupping, and often that’s hard.

IKAWA’s are perfect because they’re essentially hands-free, and save time, allowing you to easily add sample roasting into a busy day, alongside emails, production roasting, and more.

Click here to learn more about why IKAWA’s make a great fit in a roastery.

Consistency throughout the team

Whether it’s you or a teammate roasting the latest samples, you can ensure you’re getting the same roasting results and have confidence at the cupping table.

Our customers love the automation IKAWA provides to bring maximum consistency between batches, and people. It gives them more flexibility in sharing the sample roasting, and more confidence when it comes time to cup.

No previous roasting experience needed

Unlock insights about your coffee from cupping, and calibrate with buyers around the world using our sharable roast profiles.

We continue to hear how valuable the IKAWA is during harvest, both to visiting buyers at the farm, and to the farm.

Roast samples immediately, anywhere

In your offices or on the road, you can turn on an IKAWA and have a roasted sample in less than 10 minutes.

Our customers love that they can receive a last minute sample and it’s not issue to include it in the cupping.

Additionally, creating and sharing IKAWA roast profiles for your coffee samples will help your roaster customers get the best out of their cuppings, and let them find the perfect coffee for them.

Get a jump on your production profiling

You can learn a lot about a coffee with a few roasts on the IKAWA. Does it prefer a quick roast, or a longer roast? Lighter, or darker? If you have the Pro100x you can even get a graph to see where and how quickly the moisture is released from the coffee.

If your first few batches of a new coffee are not representing your company or coffee well enough, try a few batches in the IKAWA first.

Discover the best in each coffee

Don’t wait until your last few production roasts to find the best flavours in your coffee. After a new coffee arrives in the roastery, use the IKAWA to run a few quick roasts that explore varying lengths of roast, shapes, or end temperatures, and get a target flavour profile for production before your first test batch.

Buy the best coffees for you

Take full control of which coffees you purchase, and cup with confidence. The IKAWA was designed for green coffee evaluation and purchasing, and has industry-leading calibration to ensure each roast is the same as the last. It lets you cup and score with confidence.
