Question for an experienced Roastergreenspun.com : LUSENET : Coffee Related Buy/Sell/Trade : One Thread
I am interested in learning more about coffee roasting and the related equipment. My focus is on commercial quantity roasting. If anyone could provide insight into the following questions I would be much appreciative.
What are the top brands of roasters?
Generally speaking, what would be the estimated New/Used price for a 10lb, 15lb, and 20lb roaster in good to above average condition?
What are the major feature considerations when choosing a roaster? (Afterburners, Temperature Sensors, Cooling Pans, Filters, Extractors, Drum Material etc...)
Any suggestions about grinders and bagging machines?
If anybody reading this is a roaster in the San Francisco area and would be willing to share your roasting expertise in person, I would jump at an offer. In advance, thank you for your insights.
