Topic: my pro 1 lb roasters (4 msgs / 82 lines)
1) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
I know john - that was why I did my little experiment to import the 
brazilian single barrel roaster. It roasted 1 Lb. I thought I might 
sell it for $1000 but it ended up being $1300. It was basically a 
huge waste of my time, money, and most importantly, made me feel a 
bit hopeless for the preospect of finding a manufacturer to build a 
really good pro-level sample roaster (read as :no UL approval, 
manual, dangerous in the wrong hands) for about $1000 or less. And 
yet, I am still looking for the right company, someone I can really 
trust, and someone who really knows coffee. BTW my roaster did roast 
1 Lb, but I only brought in 3 of them and they were pretty much 
pre-sold. If I find a new situation I am going to bring only 2 barrel 
machines, I think.http://www.sweetmarias.com/roasters_sample_pro.htmlTom

tom, thanks nonetheless for your effort in researching this.  i hope you 
find the company your looking for (for all our benefit  ;)). it seems to me 
that there is a lot of room for improvement out there, and a lot of interest 
on the part of the consumer.

To clarify - these came and went last year ... no longer available. I 
use my 3 barrel every day though! These are crude-yet-effective 
machines, not like a Probatino, a San Franciscan, or a Diedrich, 
even. But they were alos 1/3 to 1/8th the price!!! And they roasted a 
full Lb.
