Creating the perfect coffee: This is your task as a coffee roaster in the solo game Coffee Roaster! During the 5-10 minute game, you’ll use your instincts and nose to get the most out of the coffee beans.
The challenge is to roast the coffee beans, which are still hard at the beginning, evenly and to sort out any unfavourable portions. At the same time, it is important to have a positive effect on the roasting process and to stop it at the right time. The preparation of the freshly roasted beans is followed by the decisive cup test: is this the creation of a true master roaster?
The app implements the solo board game by Saashi & Saashi in a new edition by DLP Verlag.
Try 22 different types of coffee, each with its own individual characteristics, which can be combined for countless roasting tasks.
Compete with the community in the weekly high-sorelists and collect all achievements!
Are you a real coffee junkie? Then the game is a must have for you!
But also all other board players who appreciate a good solo game will get their money’s worth.

With your active user feedback we have been able to improve some points in the app. We have improved the help, and added a context help that is triggered by a long press. The selection of the joker tile has been improved. The sound error is also fixed and new sounds have been added. Furthermore we have fixed some bugs when continuing the game. We hope this will give you a better game feeling.
Im not sure why people are complaining about this game, its not buggy and the randomness is fine. This game follows the board game rules and there are specific action windows where you can only do certain things. This game is a great rendition!
Love the game. Didnt think the tutorial was very helpful but games was simple enough to figure out. Only thing is that we cant listen to podcasts or music while the app is running. Also some times it seems like the game takes a second to process touches and causes us to touch a check mark when we were only intending to confirm we want to take the action not execute which beans to through it the trash. Very excited to have this game in our phone. Please add ability to listen to other apps while playing.
We have found a consistent issue with Sao Paulo in level one. For some reason the exchange token doesnt activate during this level only. Please test and resolve this issue.
Im new to this game. The rules were a bit hard to understand but we read the rules of the board game online and was able to piece it together. That said, from what we read, we should be able to use flavor tokens on either side of the board, at any time, as long as we can perform the associated action (right?). For some reason, it frequently doesnt let us place a token where we believe we should be able to place it (unless Im mistaken but we cannot figure out why, if thats the case). Similarly, we were playing a game at one point and it wouldnt let us place a 1 token on the upper left spot to claim the wild flavor token. We know that should be allowed to happen at any point so we do believe that is a glitch. Fun tho. If they can work the glitches out, it feels like a keeper. Also seems to be some issues in recording high scores as we complete full 3-bean games and it doesnt seem to keep a record of those games in the high score menu.
Yes, after you check your current coffee card goal on a drop down menu, if you accidentally hit main menu is closes out the current game. Did it several times by accident. If there is a way to fix it on the game, its not obvious. We did not see a reload button like you commented on another reviewers complaint on the same issue.. Maybe could use a landscape mode too. Other-wise a nice looking chill game. Good Job. Thanks.
This game could be fun, but for some reason we cant add the flavor tokens to the slot options on the right portion of the board so we never get those bonus tokens to use. Whats the deal?
A lot to like about this app. We have the board game and this is a solid re-creation. Huge complaint after first game. The game miscounted our brew by 1 point. Very unhappy with this.
We have a similar set of complaints as a couple other folks. The tutorial is very unhelpful and the more button is wonky. The game will also not let us place flavor tokens where they should be permitted to go. This would be such a blast of a game and we could see non-gamers getting into it, so we hope these get fixed.
Love the game- and the app is still fun but we run into odd glitches every so often. Our biggest peeve is the darn tutor will never go away. Im interrupted in our games constantly by the tutor telling us how to play.
Cant log in to our BrettspielWelt account through this app…
This game is not that great. We purchased it to see if we would like the physical board game. Well it saved us $35! This app is just poorly designed and the constant tutorial that cant be turned off is annoying. It doesnt save any of our scores or plays so there is no way to see if you are getting better at playing the game. Its just a dull game where many of the rounds you are pulling chits out of the bag to just put them back in for the upgrade. It really fell flat for us. The positive is that it helped us avoid buying the physical copy, thats why it gets 2 stars.
We’ve been wanting to play this solo game for quite some time, but the physical box is too expensive for what the game offers. We were excited to see an app version! Unfortunately, the app has several bugs. First, it offers you three ways to play 1x, 3x, and expert. The expert option is locked, but they give you no information on how to unlock it. Im assuming that you have to complete the achievements. Secondly, the achievements arent always recognized. We’ve met the requirements for a few of them while playing, but they werent awarded. Third, when you place a flavor token in the right hand column for an effect, it locks you out of the left hand column (immediate effects). In regards to design, the game has several user design issues. First, there are no prompts when playing that makes it difficult for a first time player to understand what to do. Secondly, the Roasting button is really hard to use. Your finger tends to cover up the options they show you when you start to drag it. There was plenty of room for them to just show 2 small buttons (roasting, roasting and cupping). Secondly, its a pain to constantly click on the coffee recipe to remember the flavor tokens and roasting level. They could easily identify these things on the main screen. Thirdly, when clicking to see whats in the bag, your finger covers up the disk play making it hard to see the token counts. Fourthly, when playing the wild/joker token on a wild space its impossible to see the three token choices, let alone actually select the one you want. Fifthly, they ha ent updated the game to work on modern iPhones. The top of the screen is cut off by the phones speaker. Lastly, its sad that we cant just select a coffee recipe and play with that. Im assuming thats part of the expert mode, but we may never know. That said, we really like the game! We just wish the interface was more intuitive and less buggy.
Developer just copy and pasted the instructions from the physical game. No real tutorial. UI is amateurish and no real effort put into making it a good game. Feels like the end product of an Xcode tutorial.
We cannot get our flavor tokens to stay on the right side of the board where there are two blank spaces for the roasting bonuses. What am we doing wrong? We were so excited about this app and have not been able to play a full game. We would be glad to increase our stars with some help.
Tokens cannot be placed properly on over half the roasting board. This seems to have been a problem with the app for about a year now. This app has such potential, if only the developer made it more of a priority to fix the problems people have listed here in the reviews.
How can you put a game like this on the market without somewhat easy instructions to follow??? The different parts of the game board arent even explained. Im not sure how long it will take us to figure everything out in order to play. Seriously, do not waste your money!!!
We m familiar with the board game but even with that familiarity this game is almost impossible to get into. The rules included and the app are wholly inadequate, the tutorial is a joke. The App feels incomplete and is awkward to use.
UPDATE: While we still feel the UI is a bit unintuitive, the developer has politely pointed out clear work arounds to our biggest issues. The core game is interesting but without hover text to explain specific UI elements, a way to call up help in-game (the tutorial pops in occasionally to explain things, but you can’t bring the help up on your own in-game), and if you ever hit "Back" while looking at your coffee info sheet, it starts a new game! Lastly, while the game features weekly leaderboards, there is no quick and easy way to see your personal best score if not good enough to be among the top players. We’ll happily change our rating if these many issues are addressed.
Lovely rendition of a very fun solo board game. Thank you for taking the time to make this! Though we miss the physical action of the tokens, this is wonderful to have while waiting in line, etc! Fun game, easy to learn but difficult to master. Perfect for iOS! The only thing is the tutorial and rules may be a bit difficult for some to learn, but luckily after s game or two, things start to make sense.
Tried several times to get this working on our IPhone 11 pro max but keeps crashing. We are able to get it to work on our iPad. We have never played the physical board game but this game is really fun and we do enjoy it. Just wish we could get it working on our phone.
