Royal Cup coffee in Birmingham, Alabama has a *3 story tall* coffee roaster that will roast 1000 lbs at once. Royal Cup is located at the same place they've been since 1896. ...seen this on local TV the other day... ...and I thought a "one sack/150 lbs per batch" was a BIG roaster.- Steve D.
Is it a fluid bed roaster? =) On 2/5/07, Steven Dover wrote: <Snip>
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. If you fluidize a one thousand-pound bed of beans, does it still weigh = half a ton? Inquiring minds want to know. ;)

<Snip> smell of burned Jet-A ruin your roast? Or does it "add nuance?"
I worked near the plant a couple of years ago. Last I heard, City of B'ham will not assist with a land deal so they are moving the plant somewhere else - Shelby County? St.Clair? Just down the road O' Henry's aka Red Mountain Coffee Roasters has a Probat I believe. I used to drink Eight O'Clock before discovering real coffee.
