Hi All, im afer thoughts and reconendations for a home coffee roaster ans thought there dosn't seem to be a topic listing all the options in the UK! im starting off having never roasted however i want to get a roaster that is going to be able to product a close to commercial (a speciality roaster) coffee. as far as i can see there are the options Gene Cafe from BB @ £500 - a small roaster, great to learn on but maybe a little limited on control. Un-modified it will do on OK job of roasting 250g from what i can tell in the threads. Hottop roaster from the London warehouse (i emailed the supplier through the e-portal last week) @£1450 + £80pp this will allow you to have greater control with both fan and heat, also giving the ability to connect to software such as Artisan. it will roast you upto 250g. Cormorant CR600 £c.1600 this is Gas roaster and looks the business (looks are subjective) and will roast up to 600g per batch. I do have a concern that its not CE rated. Again this roaster will give control over heat, fan and drum speed. this also has the ability (with additional thermocouples, allowing software connection). Then we are on to the Amazon Dalian and Aillio Bullet, im less aware of these but
On Saturday I took a trip to Cropredy Village near Banbury to pick up my new Cormorant Roaster. It was great to meet Johan and Tazelle and to see my roaster waiting for me to do a roast, the machine looks amazing, really top quality with excellent detail to the finish. While waiting for the roaster to warm up Johan explained the roaster to me and how It works. We roasted 500g of El Salvador Finca San Ernsto, 1st crack is easily heard and the beans were dropped at the start of 2nd crack which was at just after 11.30ish I think. I was trying to take everything in and It was all over too soon. I'm really happy with the Roaster and looking forward to my 1st roast on my own. Johan also had a few Roasters lined up getting ready to be shipped to their new owners, and I know they'll be very happy. I cant seem to upload any pics at the moment, I'll try later.
