    5 or 10kg Toper roaster?

    I am putting together a small roastery with the intention of supplying a few cafes and coffee drinkers in my city with fresh fair trade beans.

    I am undecided between the 5 and 10kg Toper roaster. Would a 5kg be big enough to handle the workload of a growing biz?

    Is there another option on an afterburner other than the topper burner?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    5kg Toper

    Hi,
    I have been roasting for just over year on my 5kg Toper, I have a small cafe in the South Island of NZ. I roast about 30kg a week and really wish I had bought a 10kg as the footprint is not that much bigger but it would save a whole lot of time ! I find the 5kg will only roast about 3kg max at a time and I have 4 beans in my blend.
    How that helps.
