Here is the summary of our blog for its very first year. Lesson learned, more celebrities!
While we’re here, I may as well summarize 2010 for RoastLog. In early January of 2010, we didn’t have a product. We had a prototype circuit board, very very rough prototype which I had demo’ed at the previous year’s SCAA show and a few beta testers. A year later we have 34 paying customers, a Best New Product award from the SCAA and almost twenty one thousand roasts logged on our site.
Every day I wish were were moving faster…developing new features faster and adding new customers. However, I’m still extremely proud that we’ve taken the idea of RoastLog and been able to put it in the hands of real roasters all over the world. For me, as an engineer, it’s flattering that people use the software that I’ve written.
What’s next for 2011?
- Four channel Data Bridge
- A kick-ass inventory system built specifically for coffee roasters
Those two items are our main focus right now. Look for both of these things to land at the SCAA show in Houston this year.
2010 was fun. 2011 will be monumental!
