  • What is a "roast event"?

    A roasting plan that combines [green coffee beans] and [roasters] is called a roast event, and includes information such as the raw green beans, the roaster who will roast them, the degree of roasting, and the flavors to be brought out.
    When the desired roast event that the customer participated in reaches the roasting start amount, the roast event is established and the roaster starts roasting.

    You can buy raw beans in bulk and store them on the cloud. By using the stored beans, you can participate in roasting events at a discount.
