You will need either an iOS or Android mobile or tablet device to install the IKAWA Pro App.
IKAWA Sample Roasters emit very little smoke when roasting and do not require installation of extraction facilities. However if you’re roasting repetitively, or have a very sensitive fire alarm, we recommend placing your roaster near an open window (or two) in a well ventilated room.
During roasting, the chaff is blown across and contained in the collection jar. At the end of the roast, empty the chaff before expelling your coffee.
No more than a few moments. IKAWA Sample Roasters will arrive ready to ‘Plug and Play’ – simply connect your roaster to the power, connect your device and you’re ready to go. For more information visit the Pro App Guide.

You have complete control over how long the sample roast will be, up to a maximum of 20 minutes. Many users will develop their own sample roasts in order to achieve their desired outcomes, with a typical range of 5 to 10 minutes including the roast itself and cooling time.
The integration facilitates communication between the IKAWA App and the Cropster web platform csar.cropster.com. You can read the guide here.
As with any sample roaster, scaling up your roast profiles isn’t an exact science. This said, there are a few great places to start. Firstly, taking advantage of the many sensors in the IKAWA Sample Roaster, the IKAWA Pro App captures a great deal of data.
Using the Roast Log, you’re able to access Inlet and Exhaust temperature curves, mark colour change, view time and temperature of first crack, development time, DTR and rate of rise curves – all of which can help translate your experiences.
This information, combined with your sensory skills and knowledge of your production roaster are super valuable.
