Now that is a fancy fake roaster.  What a goofy company that preys on
believers :)   Jared

Dunno if it has been posted here before, but I first visited the website about 2 
years ago. It does roast cofffee.  It is NOT a modified roaster, but built from 
scratch.  Good job, too. It even follows the sun's movement as it roasts. They 
sell small amounts of solar roasted coffee.  From what I can tell, the reflected 
IR rays heat a drum. I don't know if the rays heat the beans directly, or 
through the drum.  Why not ask?  Dan

It begs the question, what do you do when you just  roast on a
rainy day?

Great idea if they have good controls. It's all about controlling those
variables.
Oh no! A cloud!  ;-)

A 10' solar collector on a sunny summer's day at a southern lattitude is going
to generate (err... focus) some heat (if done properly).  I wouldn't be so
quick to discount this as a fake...  A challenge for sure but a fake I think
not.
If I had access to one of these contraptions I certainly wouldn't mind giving
it a shot.
Even still, I think I'll just pay my electric co-op to offset the electricity
my Wagner HT1000 heatgun uses with wind energy.  It certainly is easier and I'm
sure offers  significantly less opportunity for baked beans.  And it's probably
cheaper to boot (at least for the first 1000 roasts or something outrageous I'm sure).
