Hello,

i am about to purchase the 6 lbs San franciscan, I am a godd at roasting coffee yet. I relly like the San franciscan because is small and less weigth, the weigth is 375 lbs versus at least a 1000 lbs for the same with Probat. I am laso very bias about the European products. I think sometimes they superior to other producs because their motivations are different. it's not always money for the art of doing something. I am a bit perplexe of spending more than $10,000. Can somebosy advice about buying San franciscan instead of Probat. I like San Franciscan because is manual. What about US Roaster. I am sure about US Roaster. Please honest advice please.

People are very divided when it comes to roaster models and manufacturers. It's a bit like the Chevy vs Ford guys. There are many posts on this subject. You may want to make a list of the things you are looking for in a roaster and call these manufacturers.

I'm not a roaster by any means. But looking at the Probat we have and the ones that are on the Probat's website I would venture to say your San Fanciscan is a completely different machine.

From what little I've read on www.probat.com I would say that a new Probat roaster might have the option to adding computer control to it. It might be expensive but may have options you might want to consider for down the road.

Hi
I have a US Roaster 3KG and it was the best investment for a beginner like myself
They have some videos on some of their roasters at: www.revelationroaster.com
Good Luck in your new venture!!
