roaster on the street : LUSENET : Coffee Related Buy/Sell/Trade : One Thread

Is there anyonee out there using a small size roaster on their outdoor coffee carts? Sounds like the way to give off a coffee aroma and supply the freshest coffee available. Comments please. Thank you!

The small stove type (home roaster) your describing is great for the home environment (smaller use) yet unpracticle for a commercial cart (heavier use) which would beat the heck out of a product built for a home user, less abuser. A commercial roaster builds a better product for the gourmet coffee drinkers tastes however, a smaller batch commercial gas roaster(3lb/5lb)would also not be be practicle because of EPA standards/complications of installation and protection and safety of both your roaster(equipt.)and your consumers.Your idea is sound, the application needs tweeking. If you had a protected environment, such as an enclosed kiosk and you meet all the EPA standards, you would have a viable situation. Are you thinking about getting into the coffee business ?

I am looking for a light scale coffee roaster and grinder which can be operated from a shop and can process coffee as the customers waits.If you have a set of each please get intouch with me ASAP.
