Coffee Roaster

Coffee Roaster is a solitaire pool-building game. You choose a variety of coffee beans you want to roast, and put a number of tokens specific to that variety into a bag. Each turn, you draw a number of bean tokens randomly from the bag to advance their roast level. When you are finished, you make a cup-testing to check the taste of your coffee and score points accordingly. Each variety has its own target roast level, but approaching the target is not enough for perfect roasting; you also have to even out the roast level of each bean, while not spoiling the flavor of that variety.

You also have to screen out smoke tokens and burnt bean tokens that hinder your roasting, and reject bean tokens that spoil the taste. It is important to control the contents of your bag utilizing flavor effects and unique effects caused by placing tokens on the roast board.

There are 22 varieties of beans in the game. In one game, you try to roast three of them, and your roaster title is awarded based on the total score. Enjoy the world of coffee-roasting, and aim for the ultimate title "Meister".

  • Presentation is top notch. On the light side strategically, but there are satisfying decisions to be made, and I still have yet to reach more than 'Most Promising' status so there is more than enough reason to keep busting this one out.
  • App only
  • This is a light solitaire game about roasting coffee beans. In my limited play experience, it's fun. I don't think it'll hold up long term as I think once you learn enough you'll get to a point your always playing optimal strategy, but your choices will be kind of obvious. Maybe I'm wrong. In any case, I could see 30 or 40 plays before you get to that point with the number of beans and the three rounds you have to play.

That would be a handy one to have. We used to have a filter on the all games page for doing that, but looks like it got accidentally taken out at some point. But couple of games I've heard over and over again for solo only are:

Besides the ones mentioned, I think these games are very promising:

I haven't played it but I hear good things about Coffee Roaster. I understand Stronghold Games either has recently brought it to the US market, or that it will be soon available.
