    What about this roaster?

    Is this roaster any good? http://www.delawarecitycoffeecompany..._roasters.html

    I want to open a retail location with an estimated 200 to 500 espresso/coffee servings per day. Will this fit the bill to roast?

    Pros? Cons?

    I'm new to roasting and would like a machine that is able to produce consistant results (after a bit of training, of course).

    I would like the opportunity to sell roasted beans to the public as well.

    Any other machine suggestions that will work best for my appliction?

    Is there a drum roaster that would suit my intentions without breaking the bank?

    I would agree with Topher. If you want a smallish roaster its got to be a drum roaster. Stick with the Ambex's or Diedrich's of the business. They will be certain to be able to give you good customer support if...or when you need it.

    Seems like there wouldn't much temperature control ona completely eletric heating element. I'd question how long the heating elements last and how much they cost.
