Precision & repeatablility.

HOW IT WORKS

IKAWA have spent the last 4 years designing a roaster that solved one of the greatest issues at the core of the evaluation process: repeatability and therefore reliability.

Bringing digital precision and automation via the IKAWA PRO app to coffee roasting allows for greater control, efficiency and speed, and for finer adjustments to be explored.

IKAWA PRO APP

Delivers hands-free roasting with digital precision and control.

APP BENEFITS

HANDS-FREE PRECISION

The IKAWA Pro App delivers hands free roasting with the incredible precision and control. Set a profile on the app, press go and the roaster will execute that roast with precision.

SMARTER SAMPLE ROASTING

The IKAWA Sample Roaster will automatically adjust heat and airflow to match your roast profile. This means consistency between your roasts and everyone else on the team, over and over again.

CREATING A COMMON LANGUAGE

Not only will you have access to our Roast Profile Library with profiles from around the world, but you can create a company set of roasts. This means from location to location, day to day, the roasts you and your team sample are the same.

IKAWA PROFILE LIBRARY FOR PROFESSIONALS

A global library of roast profiles. Explore and create a whole new world of roasting.

Are you a green buyer? Many coffee producers are beginning to have access to an IKAWA Sample Roaster, and the ability to be able to share the cupping notes and a roast profile for you both to evaluate the coffee together is extremely powerful.

ROASTING

After the Roaster begins a profile, it will automatically begin to “Pre Heat” the roast chamber. You will see the live temperature read out of the sensors on the App screen as they rise to the start temperature.

When the roaster stabilizes at the correct start temperature, the greens are added into the roast chamber by turning the doser, and as soon as it closes again the roast will automatically begin.

DURING THE ROAST

The IKAWA Pro App will track the progress of your roasts live over top of the template.

Add markers for:
1. Colour Change
2. 1st Crack
3. 2nd Crack

After 1st crack has been marked, the App will automatically begin calculating the Development Time Ratio (DTR).

After Roasting

Automatic Cooling

When the roaster has completed the roast it will immediately begin to cool the coffee by shutting down the heating element and pushing room temperature air into the chamber (even if you’re in the other room!).

An average roast is cooled in 2 to 3 minutes at a normal room temperature.
