    I understand...would love to see the old probat you are using..I used an old Royal some time ago...it was built in 1896. I loved that roaster! I am using an Ambex 60 now and am awaiting a second 60....oh well later

    Topher - a 2nd 60! Geez! I don't know how you guys "drum" up the biz, but I am impressed. Meanwhile, my 2nd hand YM-2 works great. You will recall I bought it off a pirate down in Florida. No doubt, Ambex builds an awesome roaster.

    I managed to get a .PDF verison of the owner's manual, which is good because I needed some guidance on maintenance, especially the grease points. Maintenance is everything.


    I just visited a coffee shop yesterday - their roaster is right out in the open in the shop. Sure, it's vented for smoke and chaff collection, but a customer could easily walk up and mess around with it.

    They've been there for a long time - was originally Cormier Coffee Roasting Company, but changed their name. Anyway, I would think it makes more sense to have some degree of separation between the roaster and the general public. Right on, Topher...you rock.

    My experience with shop roasters is that people wont touch them. There is a feeling of not understanding them so they dont touch.
    Its not hard to cordon them off from the public if need be.
    Personally i like the idea for people to get up real close to it.
    How many times do you see people on the street get up real close to a Ferrari or a Porsche but dont scratch or touch it.
    Something more common and they will run a coin along side it. ...

    In my experience people dont get too close or touchy with things they dont have or understand.

    Topher congratulations on a second 60 KGroaster .Buizz is good and i know what it takes to need 2 60kg roasters going cos i never got there.
    Youre obviously doing a few things right and you understand your market place.

    OK guys, thanks for your input, and Im a-gonna listen to ya.
    Im going to build an enclosure near the very front windows of my shop for the roaster (lower wall section, upper glass section) so people can see into the area with an opening about 5 feet wide to get to the work area with a lil gate so kids dont get too close.
    If it ends up getting too loud, Ill take out the gate and put up a glass door, like a french door and keep it closed only while actually roasting. Sound good?
