Profile Templates

Automatic Save


Did you know that you can instruct Artisan to save roast profiles automatically such that none can get lost? In combination with automatic batch numbering and batch reports, Autosave is a powerful tool to document your production.

More On Digital Noise


In my previous post on Digital Noise I demonstrated that a low temperature resolution produces a noisy rate-of-rise (RoR) curve. Here I hint on a simple way to get a less noisy RoR signal on systems with limited temperature resolution. Just increasing your sampling interval.

Digital Noise


This small note argues that temperature resolution matters even if it transports mostly noise. Continued in the post More On Digital Noise.

Probat Probatone: Adding ET


The first generations of the Probat Probatone 2, the ones without touch display as well as those with the small touch display, came with a bean temperature (BT) probe only. Now that Artisan can be connected directly to those machines to read the BT and to control the burner level, only a simple way to additionally log the environmental temperature (ET) from an additional probe fitted to the exhaust is missing. Just adding a simple electronic device to this setup and a small configuration can easily achieve this.

Probat Probatone



Probat is opening up to 3rd-party roasting software. The Artisan team is proud to be picked as one of their first collaborations. Thus, in the last weeks we worked together with Probat engineers to establish the connection between Artisan and their Probat Probatone roasting machines.

Recent Roast Properties



Remember that day when you had to roast 100Kg of that Colombian bean on your 5Kg machine? You might have become tired re-entering all the same roast properties over and over again to document your roasts. A new feature in Artisan v1.1 allows you to store and recall up to 20 recent roast properties.
