I'm buying an established coffee bar and considering doing my own roasting sometime in the near future. I've located a few sources for small roasters but not familiar with the brands and their reliability/user friendliness. Does anyone have suggestions or experience in this arena?

Contact Dave at monstercoffee.com. I purchased a roaster from him, any one can use it after just a couple of simple instructions. This is a fluid bed type. :?

I am not an roastmaster I lack the talent, however I have found a way to roast coffee that I am 100% satisfied with quality and consistancy. I am using the small batch fluid bed type. There are positive points about both types.

I might suggest that you contact Greg St. John at Diedrich Roasters, his number is toll free 1-877-263-1276. They also hold roasting classes throughout the year. Great classes, very interesting and if memory serves me correctly it only costs about $150 per person for 2-3 days. Tell him Sean sent you. I can definately vouge for them I called them enough times when we first started up, and they never hesitated to assist me no matter how dumb the question was. :grin:
