You are probably better to buy a manufactured one (either new or used). Making your own will not result in a consistent product at costs remotely similar to buying one from a manufacturer...

Good luck!

The answer is very simply - If you need to have specifications to have someone build it for you - you should not be building one - you should be buying one and figuring out all the things you would change if you were to make one yourself - then have someone build it to your specifications.

Well Jeff, re-inventing the wheel? Not sure what "theme" you shop is trying to convey and I am not sure if you want to roast in the shop or the back room - but there is a lot of used machiery in the world and it is not difficult to locate it - once you figure out what you want to do and where. Then you can chase after machinery that is tried and proven. There is a huge difference between a hot air Sivetz and a Probat and cast iron vs cutting toarch metal pieces welded together in some 3rd world country. Like cars - you get what you pay for. Do you want a Spanish Siat or a German 600S Mercedes? They both drive down the street? Start with www.coffeetec.com
