    Advise Please: I want to buy coffee roasting equipment for a small roastery

    Hi guys, I have a couple of questions I would love to find out some opinions about. I'm pretty new to this but here we go... I bought a 15kg roaster made by company called Golden (turkish make).

    Now I'm thinking of purchasing an external cyclone...I'd love to know your opinion on those. Do I definitely need one? What happens if I don't have one.

    Next I'm looking to buy an afterburner. Any opinions on electrostatic filters vs. afterburners? Which is better. Am I better off getting an afterburner? (what's best to eliminate coffee roasting odor?)

    If I set up my shop as following: roaster, cyclone, afterburner/filter...is this enough to start roasting?

    In time, I'd like to get destoner but first things first...I have somewhat limited budget Thank you for any input. Cheers

    You will for sure need a cyclone - otherwise, your chaff released from the beans will be a significant problem. Afterburner is really dependent on your city requirements. I run a 12K and my city doesn't require anything - honestly, they were clueless and I think I could run a much larger roaster without any issues. But - I'm also located in an industrial area so smell is not a concern. Buy quality green and a destoner shouldn't me needed. There are some out there on the market that around $2500 for small production roasters.
