We all know how vital that perfect cup of coffee can be in the morning to get your day started on the right foot. But for those aficionados who want to enjoy the very best coffee, current roasters might not be cutting it for your specialty beans. Even worse, the process of finding the ideal roasting profile to match your coffee is as wasteful as it is tedious. That’s where Røst, the innovative sample roaster comes in to make sure your brew is perfect each and every time.
The creators of Røst may be some of the biggest coffee fanatics out there, which allows them to put both their passion and expertise to work. Arriving out of Norway, Røst has been in the works for around 4 years, but is now ready to come to market.
You may ask yourself, what goal does something like Røst strive to accomplish? Well with coffee, each assortment of beans have its own unique flavors, which is even more the case when it comes to specialty brews.

Even with all the bells and whistles, Røst claims to be easy and intuitive to use. Thanks to all the technology incorporated into the roaster, it’s able to balance the demands of both coffee snobs and those new to the hobby alike. The combination of sensors and software allow you to focus more on the flavor of the coffee, and not on maintaining the roasting process.
For those looking to take their coffee bean roasting skills to the next level, Røst starts at just $5,500, although you’ll have to request a quote from the company’s site to actually purchase. There’s no word on shipping times, but due to the higher-end nature of Røst, is made to order for each coffee fan.
