    Agree with John P. If you have enough equity or own your home outright, you will not beat the interest rate to get that home equity loan.
    I would get a fixed rate though, they seem to promote the variable rate.

    Different kinds of Loan offer Advantages vs. Disadvantages. Shop around. Today many of the Larger banks are starting to consider and process Personal Loans. If the amount you need is not more than 50.000 you may want to consider them. You can look for them online. Just Goggle the specific Bank under Personal Loans. The Interest Rates are higher than the Home Equity but your house is not on the line. Additionally, you must remember that if you get a Home Equity you will have to keep your House Insured during the time of loan. Thus, they all have considerations that must be evaluated. GOOD LUCK.

    Save your money and buy your equipment outright. restaurant loans have very high interest rate due to the likely hood they will fail.


    I am not saying to not buy a roaster just saying save your money and buy it out right.


    Most banks do not write loans for less than $75k as they do not see any profit in the loan.

    If you can not afford a roaster that size find a local roaster and rent time from them. Maybe they will teach you how to roast before you drop $7k ish

    Keep in mind you need more than just a roaster, do not forget about green bean, bags, sealer, grinders and so on.

    Just my $0.02
    Agreed. This is the path I have taken. I paid cash for my roaster and other equipment. If don't sell a lot in the beginning isn't going to bankrupt me. Growth has been slow but its only been a couple months.

    I know this is an older thread, but I just joined the forum and felt the need to make my first post. We are the company you are referencing from Roast Magazine. Specialty Coffee Finance (specialtycoffeefinance dot com) We provide both roaster financing and roaster leasing options.
