When using the search filter within “Discover Roasts” inside Google Chrome, the Roast Degree box does not show as it does when using Microsoft Edge. Not sure if this is a bug or an issue with Chrome?
Can you let me know which version of Chrome you’re using? I’ve tried both versions of Chrome & Edge that’s installed on my device and it seems to work okay.
If you can, can you attach a screenshot of how the dropdown looks on both of your browsers?
Without Agtron (or other scales) for Whole and Ground beans, I don’t find the Roast Degree that useful because I have no idea what a person is basing it on. Development time and drop temp interact and are somewhat dependent on a person’s roaster. For instance, I did three different sample roasts of three different coffees using Rob Hoos profile: all were horribly underdeveloped and I even roasted them to a higher end temp than suggested. Before I got my color analyzer I was using drop temp to guess at Roast Degree. After getting the analyzer I saw that I was often way off, especially since a faster roast will show a greater delta between whole and ground color. So the only useful way to gauge roast degree is through objective measurements. I do three different preparations and measurements for whole and ground, then average. If I get an obvious outlier, I take a fourth reading.
I think your comment is more of a feature request than about the original issue raised in this post. Can you create a new post with your comment/feature request. Looking forward to hearing from you.
I already created a feature request. My point here, to the OP, is that use of the Roast Degree as a filter is of unknown reliability since we have no idea how accurate the designations are. A fellow roaster has measured color of commercial bags of coffee and the contents of K-cups. They almost never match the advertised roast level. I think it is important in coffee to be as objective as possible, when possible–that means measuring color and only then mapping to a scale like city, medium, dark, etc.
I belive I am using the latest versions for both on Windows 11 - 64
Edge: Version 103.0.1264.77 (Official build) (64-bit)
Chrome: Version 103.0.5060.134 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Seems to work fine on my Android version of Chrome (but much too small)
I tend to use chrome so didn’t actually know the Roast Degree filter was there until I switched to Edge for some reason.
Thanks for the reproduction. I will fix asap.
