Artisan is a software that helps coffee roasters record, analyze, and control roast profiles. When used in conjunction with a thermocouple data logger or a proportional–integral–derivative controller (PID controller), this software can automate the creation of roasting metrics to help make decisions that influence the final coffee flavor.
It is now possible to give Artisan full control of the roaster and to let the roast curve of your own design dictate the way the roast should go. And even, if you want to go super-nerdy, roast by formula. The Artisan math module can come up with a formula that yields your preferred profile and then you can send this formula to a fellow roaster or you can save it to re-create that profile elswehere on the fly later on. This can then in turn be used to navigate precisely along that roast curve, on auto pilot.
