For sale is my Dalian Amazon 1kg Electric Roaster. Started a little business with this about 2 years ago and now have a slightly bigger roaster. It does roast good coffee and is great to roast for yourself or as a start into the world of roasting. We would keep it as it really is a pretty machine, but it would be a waste sitting in our roastery. It has been well looked after, cleaned and maintained. We roasted about 8-16kg on it every week so it does have some natural wear and the odd bump and scratch. Nothing that is too obvious though or that impacts its performance. You are welcome to come and inspect it first. We fitted the modulator to control the electric supply and got a bigger flue for the exhaust. It also has the power reader plug thingy to measure your watts (which will surprise you with how up and down it is!) It comes with the original manuals. £2300 and collection from Sevenoaks, Kent. Happy to show you how it works and how we roasted on it. Could even do some well priced green beans for you if are interested. Happy to send more pics if needed.
Hi, I am seriously considering splashing out to get a Dalian Amazon roaster. However, before splashing the cash, I would quite like to see one up close and personal (preferably watching a roast in process). Is there a proud and accommodating owner within about 90 minutes drive of staines who would be happy for me to come and view their roaster some time over the next few days. I appreciate this is an unusual request, but i remain hopeful. Please PM me if it's a possibility. Thanks
Morning everyone, I'm new to the home roasting game but have worked in a roastery for the last year so have some idea of the roasting process etc. I'm ready to make the leap into the 1kg market and have been looking at the following roasters: Toper Cafemino Dalian Amazon Golden GR1 North TJ-067 (From Mill City Roasters in the States) Now I did also have a good look into the Aillio Bullet but there's still not much information out there even though it has been on the market for a little while. There is currently no distributer here in UK and I'm worried about cost of parts/if it ever needed repairs etc. The tech seems pretty advanced but I can't help but think that this means more could go wrong and be harder to fix. I've also read that it has no tryer and had been designed with a monthly roast limit of 100kg which has put me off. We had a 30kg Toper where I previously worked and although this is obviously 30 times bigger, as a manufacturer I found the build quality/reliability was good. It didn't break down the whole time I was part of the company and I can't remember a bad batch coming out of the drum. However, the price of the Cafemino is twice that of the Dalian. Would I just paying the additional cost for the name alone? The TJ-067 seems quite similar to the Dalian in build quality/features but I couldn't find a distributer in the UK. Does anybody know if there is one? The reviews on the Mill City site look great and it is affordable. Just a shame about that little stretch of water that is known as the Atlantic Ocean! The GR1 is a bit of a mystery. The only info I can find is on a distributers website and have been unable to uncover any reviews. I've submitted a price enquiry so maybe I'll get a little more information from them. Would be great to get my hands on feedback from the public though. My main aim is to find a machine that I can learn on. Roll my sleeves up and get hands on with the process. So if it doesn't come with software etc I'm not too bothered. Probably out of my price range anyway. I want to be able to produce consistent, high quality roasts with the ability to batch roast if I decide I want to sell coffee in future. Lastly, I'm looking for a tried and tested machine that is safe, solid and parts are easy/cheap to come by. Would be fantastic to get some insight from anyone who has owned one of the above or used one. It would be a great help. Many thanks, James
