All gone quite here.......

 

I am sure it will be delivered soon....the main concern would be not delivery, but if there is some problem that has been missed that requires huge amounts of resource from Aillio to put right. In some ways slow delivery and a drip feed of roasters could be for the best.

Nope, but here's what they are saying....

 

First things first: We are happy to report that the first Bullets have already shipped and been received in Australia and Singapore! In fact, even as I write this newsletter, there are more Bullets (including 110V versions) being personally tested by Jacob in the factory downstairs before we send them on their way to Korea, Denmark, and Japan.

 

Needless to say, we are absolutely ecstatic, and are very much looking forward to more and more of you receiving your roasters. We can't emphasize enough how much we appreciate your loyalty and patience. Without you? This project would have never gotten off the ground floor.

 

Many of you know that we have been very busy recently, and we have a few changes to announce. We've moved our office to a new location at the Syntrend Creative Park near the Guanghua Electronics Plaza in Taipei, and we've also hired a new team member, who happens to be writing this newsletter. Hi! I'm Taylor and I will be assisting the Twins with their communications in the future. Nice to "meet" you all!

 

The change that will interest you most, however, is one that is coming in the next couple weeks. Until now, we've only been able to produce about 2 roasters per day, but we will soon be able to triple our speed to about 6 roasters per day.

 

As for shipping, TNT will be handling all orders to ensure the process is as smooth as possible. On that note, we have some other great news to report: the shipping prices for the Bullet R1 have been reduced even further thanks to some packaging optimization by the Twins. For instance, you may remember that we initially estimated a Bullet shipping to the US may cost between 2-300 US dollars. That same Bullet is now expected to ship for only 160 US dollars. Big difference, eh?

 

Finally, Aillio will be participating in this year's SCAA Expo in Atlanta, from April 14-17. We still have about 10 free tickets for those of you who are interested in meeting the team and seeing the roaster in action. So if you're gonna be in the area, feel free to get in touch with us on Facebook for a chance to nab some freebies!

 

As more and more Bullet roasters arrive at their new homes all across the globe, expect to see more updates from us! In the meantime, if you're interested in geeking out a little bit, here is a link to our work-in-progress, an early draft of the official manual for the Bullet R1. (Just don't print it out yet! It's still being written!)

 

Keep on roasting,

 

The Aillio Team

What about an expected delivery date for your UK roasters?

 

I am looking forward to seeing how they perform, but it does seem to be taking an age for someone in the UK to get one. I have searched online, but so far, the only reviews are by the manufacturer, none of the current reciepients appears to have reviewed it.

I have only done 3 roasts today. 3x500 gram. Seasoning the drum, so I basically killed the beans through 2C and stalled them afterwards so the drum could get a bit of "coating". Don't even think Starbucks would want them ;)

 

I didn't have time to do more since I was alone with kiddo today. So my experience is still based on my 10-15 roasts on the borrowed unit during the winter.

 

I can tell that this one does cool a whole lot quicker now after the new cooling unit has twice as many holes. It was a bit cold outside, so that probably helped also. Two minutes and the beans were cold.

 

I roasted outside - and for the love of God - do your seasoning outside or something similar.

 

I know for sure it has to be better than the "Bear more"

Without doubt :)

No, all these Roasters are from Pre-order. I think they have delivered about 10 of the 250 pre-ordered, so will be a while until Bella Barista will get them. Also Dave will need to test one, so we're talking quite a way off yet until they are up for normal sale.
