    no but there was a 60kg probat used roaster was for sale about a month ago. I thought it would have been great piece to restore. Try the search. You should be able to find it But I have seen too many restorable roasters lately. If I do, I will send you a message.

    Just as an update:

    Black Primo PRI 35 has been sold!

    Red Primo PRI 35 is still available, $8000

    Roasters are still in operation/roast daily and can be viewed roasting. Come learn from the roaster that has been roasting on them for years!

    Hello all! I am a new member and new to roasting, and am looking for advice on solid, reliable used roasters that take up to a 5lb capacity. What would you recommend? I've looked at Ambex YM-2, and some Dietrich IR series models... Thoughts? Other companies, makes, or models I should look into?

    I have been roasting on an IR-1 for a few months now and love it. I can see how all of the advice in the research I came across about outgrowing your machine is true! For me, I knew it would happen, but I also knew I always wanted to have a sample roaster as well. The only problem I have found with it (not a biggie), is that the drum is too small to add a reliable thermocouple for ET so I cannot hook up to some of the logging systems I would like and have both reference points (ET & BT). That and the data logging software is not all that impressive, IMHO. Amazing machine thus far: reliable, well made, aesthetically pleasing, and churning out some great coffee! Hope that helps!

    If you are planning on roasting more then few pounds a week, it would be wise to invest in little bigger machine. I have seen people actually roast pound of coffee in 5k or 10 k machine without much of problem. I am not saying there is anything wrong with buying 1kg machine.

    Great thoughts! So, as far as brands go, what makes and models seem to have the most consistent results, and lasting durability? I've been looking at company sites and various forums, but there seems to be little consensus among roasters. For example, if someone were to ask me what Japanese car model had high durability and reliability ratings, I'd say you can't go wrong with a Toyota Corolla or Camry. They have a long, and relatively clean track record. Is there a roaster manufacturer that can boast in that same way?

    So you are looking for Toyota in coffee roaster?
    What you are looking for is cheap, and very reliable machine.

    I would say Ambex or US roasters.
    But it really depends on how many time you are planning on roasting.
    If you are going to roast 20-30 times a day and 3-4 days a week, I would go with Probat, Diedrich, Joper and San Franciscan.

    I am not saying Ambex or US roasters won't hold up.....
