We built our Samples module to give you the ability to track and organize coffee samples to streamline green coffee purchasing and the associated decision-making process.

This article aims to give you a high-level overview of the functionality. Here's what to expect from RoastLog's Sample Management module. With this module, available in Medium and Large plans, you can:

  • Perform physical assessment and grade incoming samples

  • Organize and plan green coffee purchases

  • Monitor feedback — from first impressions through production

  • Capitalize on buying opportunities by keeping tabs on specific coffee lots

  • Bolster your in-house quality assurance programs

RoastLog helps roasters manage sample-related info, simplifying the cataloging and reviewing of incoming samples.

Track sample attributes, as well as producer, cultivar, and contract details

A quick visual inspection is the fastest way to make a go/no-go decision.  Physical defects can be quickly tallied and to determine whether the sample meets the criteria for a Specialty coffee designation.

Perform physical assessment and green coffee grading

RoastLog's samples module provides tools for performing green coffee physical evaluation/grading as well as cupping.

Use built-in cupping forms or create your own

Once the decision has been made to purchase or contract a coffee, the sample info can be seamlessly converted into a RoastLog inventory item.

Keep samples organized and recall what was purchased or rejected

RoastLog sample module provides logical workflows and a methodical approach to green coffee samples management.  The system helps you organize, prioritize, grade and pare down your incoming green coffee offerings systematically.
