Topic: 4 Kilo Diedrich > RE: +New flavor in IMV (6 msgs / 133 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
I suspect you meant the IR3, Diedrich's 3kg model. They don't make a 4 kilo
model. Months of research led us to USRC rather than Diedrich for numerous
reasons. While the Diedrich infrared heating system is more energy efficient
than USRC, went with USRC. Main reasons: the 3kg rated USRC can actually do
a 8# max batch in 16min range with actual control and power not even maxed
out. USRC cost less for same size floor model. USRC profile control system
cost much less than Diedrich. Diedrich charges mucho bucks for training on
their purchased roasters. Bruce just got back from two days one on one hands
on playing with our completed USRC 8 pounder at the factory at ZERO
additional cost. (Other than cost to travel there of course.)
Do whatever it takes to spend some time in person with the roasters you're
considering before you buy. Talk to as many people using various models as
possible. And definitely don't make decision strictly based on what a
manufacturer sales rep says!

I actually did all the research for this about a year ago, talking to tons of different reps and such.  The reason I am thinking about a "four kilo" (that's what I was told it was, but perhaps it is the 3 kilo) is because it is used and I could get a killer deal on it.  I know the people that are using it and I know that they keep great care of it, cleaning it regularly.  They are getting a larger roaster soon, and have no room for the old one, so I let them know I would gladly take it off their hands ;0)

You are going to need the truck fixed to haul that new toy around.

The truck isn't getting fixed... it's getting sold.  Good thing I come from a tiny town where everybody 1)listens to country 2)wears Carhartts in the winter 3) has at least one extra truck around. haha. :0)

So you found someone who needed another semi-dead pickup truck.  Sounds 
like where I live.  They also drink horrid "coffee" that has lived on a 
heat source until it has a skin on the top of it.  No need to buy 
special beans from SM to know what BAD is like.

Ha! Good that you can sell the truck.
I live in an area where everyone 1) listens to the Dropkick Murphys, 2)
wears the same clothes in the winter as the rest of the year in some lame
hope the cold will just disappear, and 3) people know they are stuck with
the T (public transportation) if their car dies.
Oh, I could add a fourth, too - everyone drinks Dunkins, thinking that's the
best coffee they can get (and despite the fact it's not a local company
anymore, everyone is still loyal).
As for me, I learned the lesson many years ago about wearing layers in the
winter, that I can sell anything, even dead cars (never had a truck) on
Craigslist, and that my own homeroasted is way better than any Dunkins (I
say that softly, since my son works for them now, he he)!
