BEANROAST
BEANROAST

One of the fundamental reason that coffee brings various tastes is due to roasting time. From unroasted to fully roasted takes about 10 to 15 minutes. However, roasting beans can be categorized into three general states (Light, Medium, Dark). BEANROAST is an idea of taking advantage of roasting time to induce coffee lovers to focus on process of coffee making and enjoying the moment rather than killing time through social media on smartphone while waiting for their coffee. Choose amount of roasting time by rotating the dial of BEANROAST with your smartphone. Removal of phone will stop roasting. Your phone becomes key to the proper roasting.
