    Diedrich Roasters

    Because English is my first language, my local coffee shop has asked me to help them gather some information on a new roaster for them.

    They're looking at a Diedrich roaster, probably around a 3kg batch size. They are currently using a made-in-Taiwan roaster (I can't remember the name, but I know it isn't Yang Jia/Feima).

    In a nutshell:

    Am I correct in pronouncing it DEED-rick?

    What are the main differences between the different Diedrich lines?

    What is Diedrich's reputation for durability and quality?

    What are the main advantages/disadvantages of Diedrich?

    Who are their main competitors?

    Where is a good place to do some online research?

    I don't need too much detail on any one of the questions, I just need a starting point.

    Thanks.

    You should contact Diedrich. Steve can answer all of your questions and provide you with the contact information of some of his customers.

    Thanks. That'll be more of a last step, if it gets that far. Right now I think it would be best to get independent and non-biased information. Any list of customers the manufacturer gives would be ones they're confident will give a good report. I'm looking for the problems as much as the strengths of Diedrich roasters.

    Re: Diedrich Roasters

    I have been using an IR-3 for two years as a sample roaster. It is up for sale, but I have to explain it is NOT because of the roaster. The Diedrich company builds outstanding, high quality roasters. I've worked with a bunch of roasters from different manufacturers, and this machine is by far the best. Having said that, you get what you pay for. The most impressive thing I could say in a nutshell is that the quality of the roast is superb. In two years of use I have never had a scorched bean. I have, unfortunately, burned a batch or two, but when I pay attention, the batch turns out beautifully.

    The customer support at Diedrich has been wonderful - they are great folks and very accessible. On a couple of occasions, they have gone above and beyond to get what I needed.

    I conclude by mentioning that the roasters is very easy to clean and maintain. That is a huge plus, especially if you roast a lot.

    Feel free to PM me if you have questions I haven't answered.
