Moving from Magento to Shopify

We just completed our move from Magento to Shopify over the Holiday’s and wanted to share some of our learnings and our migration experience.

About Tico Coffee Roasters and our online setup

Tico Coffee Roasters is a boutique coffee roaster, that craft roast sustainable, exclusive and unique Grand Cru coffees in very small batches and imports only the finest teas guaranteeing product freshness and consistency.

Our focus as a business has been mainly around Wholesale, but over the last few years we also have established a large following through our Online Retail on our own website – https://www.ticoroasters.com – as well as on our presence on Amazon.

Reasons for the Move from Magento to Shopify

We have been using Magento for several years and have been happy with it, but what we have learned over the last few years is requires significant effort and programming to keep the system updated and smooth running.

Roast Logging with Artisan Visual Scope for better Quality Control

UPDATE: We have since this post originally appeared, changed out roast logging system from Roast Logging with Artisan Visual Scope to Cropster and no longer use Artisan Visual Scope. We keep this post in our blog as it is serving for several people as a good entry point how to implement a free roast logging solution.

We here at Tico Coffee Roasters have long been focusing on providing only the best coffees and most exclusive teas for a truly unique experience. All our coffees have been handcrafted since day one and we have kept a full roast log of every single roast to ensure consistency and the best possible quality of our coffee beans.

We are taking this now to a new level by adding a fully automated logging system to our roastery. We have been researching for quite a while to find the perfect system for our needs and have finally installed our brand new roast logging system based on the Artisan Visual Scope Software  created by Marko Luther in Munich, Germany. And it is truly just coincidence that our roast master is also from Munich, Germany.
