    Looking to buy 5 kilo roaster - new or used..advice please - Ambex, US Roaster Corp

    I am looking to purchase a 5 kilo roaster...used or new. located in Atlanta, GA. Looking at Ambex or US Roaster (for new) or other brands as used (Diedrich, Ambex, US Roaster, etc). Anyone have experience with Ambex or US Roaster. Ambex is now run by one of the founders of the company. Noiticed he has several machines on Ebay (wonders why)....Any tips or leads on used machines
    Thanks!

    I have two roasters made by US Roaster Corp and have never had any problems. Dan has the best customer service of them all. Simple, well built machine. The fact that the drum is turned by a direct drive gear motor is a plus with me. He has some videos on you tube of a 3kg and his sample roaster. If you type in revelation roaster in your web browser it will bring you to his other site that has several videos of different models.

    We have a 12 kg from US Roasters Corps bought new in July. I've really enjoyed roasting on this machine. Dan is a good guy and includes a day of training when you purchase a roaster from him.

    Hello,
    Have you concidered Ozturk coffee roasters? They are well built and affordable. 5 Kilo new is around 11,000 delivered. I have been roasting on one since 2007. I know that others on this site use them also.

    Thanks Charlie!....I will call Chris....so far I am leaning towards US Roaster....For one thing they at least answer the phone everytime I call and look like they are a real company...not just someone who hides behind an answering machine and only returns messages via email or are 1-person shop.

    For what it is worth, I've got an Ozturk 10kg. Good machine and The Lovely & Talented Roast Mistress really likes the fact that it has a cast iron drum instead of steel, nice "soft" heat, great for slow roasting and really bringing out the best in the bean.
