@davecuk have you ever tested the Ikawa home roaster? Wonder'd what the differance +/-'s of each machine. They are approx the same cost (nope Ikawa approx £1270!) 60g vs 100g & does the Kaffelogic have any app etc (I know you hate anything automated) so just wondering what gives? :)

I’ve had the dhl message for duty and tax, £156, so a little under £800 all told. I expect the UK price, assuming a retailer takes it on, will be similar.

With regard to the Ikawa, the thought is that this roaster would be closer to the Ikawa Pro rather than home, but time will tell.

Mancoco has an Ikawa for sampling before their 5kg roaster, and I’ve said I’ll take the Kaffelogic in so we can compare.

Is there a CE Certification and the declaration of EU conformity for the roaster ? Please no Brexit joke 😉

As opposed to the UK the German customs control the labeling and papers. 🙂

No, currently  there is not....I personally can only ever advise people not to buy one if you are in a country where it doesn't meet the required standards. Once it meets those standards then authorized retailers e.g. Bella Barista will legally be able to sell them.  I am always concerned when people try to import all sorts of things directly....I have heard that in some countries customs can actually confiscate and perhaps destroy such items (although I personally think it's unlikely that would ever happen)..

I didn't mention this because it's not relevant when I am testing/reviewing a product and by the time a review is published the CE situation will be known and resolved. My concern is how the product operates and works, whether it's worth stocking for the retailer...CE I leave down to them and the Manufacturer and don't get involved.

I guess that if you are reviewing this then there must be a good chance it will get certification to be sold here. It certainly appears to give a lot for the home roaster.
