Kaffelogic Nano 7: Now on Kickstarter!

The Team here at Kaffelogic are very pleased to announce that we are now live on Kickstarter across UK and Ireland, Europe and Asia. Click below for more information and details about how you can now obtain your very own Kaffelogic via the campaign.  And for those North American and Japanese customers, we havnt forgotten about you, a second campaign is anticipated with your own voltage version around mid 2021.

More importantly we have opened this thread to provide information and a forum for you to ask any questions about Kaffelogic. 

Kaffelogic has been available in New Zealand and Australia for 2 years now. In effect, these markets have been our testing grounds where we have been able to fine tune the product to be the excellent roaster it is. We now have over 500 users roasting on the Kaffelogic with some amazing results, so there are plenty of reviews for you to make your own mind up about how good Kaffelogic really is. We have happy users from competitive baristas to top roasters as well as novice home users who have never roasted coffee before.  Our customers are finding the batch size perfect for sample roasting and general home user supply whilst our Studio profiling software is opening up huge possibilities all users, especially commercial roasters.

We will talk about many of our features in posts to come.  Feel free to ask questions here, or pop onto our website to explore the many great features that Kaffelogic has. Or find our 'user community' and 'user facebook group' to hook up with customers who are using the product, don't just take word for it!

We look forward to your comments and questions.

Many thanks, Chris, John, Wayne and the rest of the Kaffelogic team.

How do you avoid the "traditional five-day rest period"? With my Ikawa Home, I need to wait about ten days before espresso flavours reach their potential.

I'd be interested in know this too. I've tried GeneCafe, Sandbox Smart, Breadmaker... And they all require a good 5-7 rest at least, to the point that it's, to me at least, undrinkable - it's a very yeasty, grassy flavour if I don't rest. I also wonder how come, when we order from the pros, it doesn't need to rest that much. (i.e.: If I order a coffee roasted today from a roaster and drink it tomorrow, it's perfectly fine. It doesn't taste yeasty or grassy to me).

Hi Guys, thanks for you comments. Pop onto our website then select blog and you will see a discussion paper around our RTD profiles and the work we've done over many, many months to achieve these results. The precise nature to the Kaffelofic control system combined with the OS within our Studio software is the key. 

Please do have a read of our blog on the subject and don't hesitate to make contact with our support team if you want further insights.

Cheers and thanks

John

KAFEELOGIC NANO 7, BENCHTOP COFFEE ROASTER: 

A history of the product and the people behind it. 

Kaffelogic was designed and developed by Chris Hilder, a software developer from Dunedin, New Zealand. A coffee lover, Chris became frustrated with the lack of quality consistency of supermarket coffee. He started home roasting as many do, on a popcorn maker, but with very mixed results which further added to his frustrations. He realised that to produce the results he wanted he must develop a roast control system and software to drive it. The Kaffelogic Nano7 was born but it's heart and soul is the Studio roast profiling software. This is what really sets the Kaffelogic apart from any other roaster in it price bracket. 

Fast forward 5 years and Kaffelogic  has completed further development work, product and performance validation,  established a high tech production facility based in Christchurch, and gathered a professional business team of coffee industry experts with big plans to bring Kaffelogic to the world. Part of this methodology has been to establish sales in our NZ and Aus test markets, as well as a select number of global 'Beta Testers' to further trial the product. The has resulted in over 500 kaffelogics being in use around the globe today.

March 2021 has brought about the official launch of Kaffelogic into UK/ Ireland, Europe and Asia with our 220-230volt version. A further campaign to launch a 100-120volt version for Nth America and Japan is planned for mid 2021. 

What are our plans post Kickstarter regarding sales and service? Be assured that you will, in time, have a sales and service agent close to you.  All Kickstarter customers will be well looked after by our customer service team until we have local appointments confirmed. Covid has certainly slowed this process.

How to purchase NOW? Just back our Kickstarter project at this address: www.kaffelogic.com/kickstarter

Check out our campaign page for more information or at our website , www.kaffelogic.com.

Many thanks

John

KAFFELOGIC UPDATE

Hi Everyone

Well our Kickstarter campaign has finished and whilst we didnt quite reach our target, the response from backers in the UK, Ireland and Europe has been fantastic. The good news is we are proceeding with our launch into global markets regardless. All Kickstarter Backers have been emailed an offer to pre-order their Kaffelogic at the Kickstarter price level they secured. We are pleased to say that after 2 days the response has been overwhelming.

So, we are now opening up pre-orders to everyone. You can pop onto https://kaffelogic.com/home/international-shop to order your new Nano 7e machine complete with CE approval. The price is NZ $1400.00 plus a heavily subsidised shipping cost of NZ$50.00. 

Our production run for pre-orders is commencing in 2-3 weeks and we will start shipping of units in June so it will be first in first served.  We will be scheduling another stock build for July with shipping in August so those who miss this first pre-order will be including in the second round of production.

In other news, we anticipate making announcements regarding long term distribution partnerships within UK and Europe within the next 2-3 weeks. This will mean a local business to assist with all after sales service, parts supply, tech support etc. In addition to this our NZ team will always be close at hand for all customers needing support. As a business we are extremely focused on customer support, and our track record backs this up. So be assured that our support team is there to answer any questions no matter how basic or complicated. 

Its taken us a while but we are finally able to supply this wonderful product internationally so we thanks everyone for their patience. As a small business deep in the South Pacific under the cloud that Covid has presented, it has been a challenge to get us to where we are today. However, in many ways Covid has brought our community closer together proving that every cloud can indeed have that silver lining!

If anyone has any questions regarding Kaffelogic, its features or otherwise, please direct these to [email protected] or pop a question up here. 

I will keep posting updates here to keep everyone informed.

Best Wishes from New Zealand

 

John, Chris, Wayne and the rest of the Kaffelogic Team.
