    Hi Thelmese,

    Best of luck on your new venture. Question; Why a probat, specifically? There are quite a few solid roasters on the market. Do you have experience on this model?

    Roast Magazine has a classified section. There are a few roasters listed.
    Here's the link; Classifieds

    I hope that's helpful.

    Regards,
    Dave

    why a probat?

    Well... we did research by travelling through New England and talking talking talking !!! Seems that Probat was a fan favorite! We literally never spoke to anyone that didn't use a probat. We are going to NEED to consider other makes/models or we will never be an actual roasting company - we won't have a roaster! Any suggestions would be appreciated.... thank you!

    The SCAA's roaster's guild holds a retreat and blind taste test with beans roasted in most all of the major manufacturers machines every year. (Pretty sure Probat attends.) For four years straight, the top award went to a manufacturer in the US. We'll never know if they could have made it five in a row, as the guild didn't allow the manufacturer in question to participate in the contest this past August.

    Message me your thoughts! Everyone has their favorites - but we are new! I am open to anything at this point.

    The L series from Probat is great! Like dstrand mentioned, lots of other solid roasters out there. Probat has a great name and story behind it but don't shy away from checking out other roasters.
