Well, I suppose batch size and small is relative. 45# max batch 'taint
exactly small to me at this point in time! Especially considering there are
those cranking out 1000# a week with teeny weenie USRC 8 pounders. Now when
we get to that point will definitely be looking to upgrade to a "small"
roaster:-)
Yes our baby arrived this morning and three of us actually got it off the
pallet and into the Kafe. Weighs every bit of 400#! May be able to get it
running tomorrow... 
Now to fire off 5 CCR HT 330g batches of IMV before/during/possibly still
after dinner...(5 minutes pre-heat time left to start first pair of batches)
Next week it'd be a half capacity single batch, yeah!

	actually it is a 45 pound capacity roaster, and believe me we are
still a small roaster, it is only slightly larger than toms 12 kilo probat. 
	
	here is a link to the page you can see us unloading it from the
crate, thats me with the black hair and orange sweatshirt.

believe me you don't want to be in a situation where you are roasting 1000
pounds on an 8 pound roaster, thats no life, we are still considered a micro
roaster, and most of what i learned i learned by home roasting first with
help from a lot of you here, it's funny when i tell people in the industry
how i started roasting, a lot of times I'll hear, oh another one that Tom
got started in the business. SO Tom is not only a great coffee man, he is a
great inspiration to all of us here.

Woody,
I love Tom, and Sweet Maria's in general,  they are very much a corner stone
of my education. As to going commercial and taking the all necessary "Leap
of Faith" I'm going to blame Mike McKoffee, the most driven man I know.
