    I have seen turkish Toper roasters go for like 2-3k used for a 1kg. I think anything >$4k you will be able to find something pretty decent. Be wary of older MCR machines. The company was doing some "experimenting" and certain components tend to not work so well or dont work at all. What I mean is that their newer roasters are better made.

    Other than that, I would searchtempest and find "coffee roasters" in the whole US. It will give you a better picture of how much they can go for and some individuals are willing to ship. Obviously fright would be cheapest.

    Just found this posted today.

    Found you some more deals. That buckeeye roaster is a steal but it is a bit far from you I think.

    Thanks for the links dchooo.
    Yeah I think shipping will be a problem. I did check out a new one and the price was good but I'm familiar with this manufacture, any thoughts?

    That is a sweet deal, got to check it out.
    I've been looking at the BC Roasters BC-2 and possibly the BC-3.5. Still in the data gathering phase.

    True, I feel I've made some great roasts off of my Gene Cafe. But I am limited by only being able adjust temperature.

    Fake news.

    We've made many improvements and are arguably currently building the best coffee roasters ever for the production of speciality coffee. Historically, build quality has always been very much less of an issue than sale prices that attracted vast numbers of inexperienced owners. Clean your roaster, grease the bearings, roast some coffee, repeat and your machine will last nearly forever.

    Don't believe me? Look it up for yourself. It's not like everything we or anyone else has ever done with our machines that isn't splashed across FB, Instagram, or YouTube.
