    Monster Coffee Roaster

    Anyone here have this roaster? I'm starting a micro-roastery and am leaning heavily towards this unit. Seems real solid. But I'd like to hear from others about this.

    Thanks

    I'm bumping this thread in hopes that there may be some more repleis.
    I am looking a getting back in the coffee business after a few years out of it. When I had my shop small roasters that you could have in your shop were just showing up and were pretty spendy.

    I am doing some research now to try and figure out what to get.

    Been reading some old posts but any new info would be great.

    Thanks

    From what I understand, the monster machine has some difficulties getting consistent roasts. You must keep it meticulously clean between roasts to help with that. Plus it is limited to 3 pounds per hour, so that might be a problem if you are really busy.

    There are a lot of smaller roasters out there. If you go to www.roastmagazine.com - they have a classified section of advertisers with a bunch of roaster manufacturers there to look at. Might help you get started better?
