Topic: Any Unimax Roasters Out There? (3 msgs / 50 lines)
1) From: Martin Reuben
I just "discovered" the Unimax 2000 roaster that I had put on the shelf
a year or two ago.  Plugged it in and it did just what it always did -
evenly roast a half pound of green coffee with no fuss and a lot of
enjoyment.  I think I'm going to really like putting this little
machine back to work.
Anybody else still using a Unimax?
Also, if there are any dead ones out there, I'd be interested in
purchasing them for parts, in order to keep this extinct beast alive as
long as possible.

Could you describe the Unimax for us newbies?  Google turned up a
couple of references to it, including two pages with pictures, but
nothing that said how it worked.  Hot air?  Conduction roaster?  The
pictures look like it dumped the roasted beans into a container when
they were done.  True?  Your description makes it sound like a good
inspiration for those of us who would like to design and build their
own roasters.
Thanks.

I revived my Unimax-2000 several months ago and have been using it on a 
regular basis ever since. I have about all types of roasters except the Rosto 
and guess which is my favorite? The Unimax that has been off the market for a 
long time. It is quiet, very even roast and thru first crack in about 10 - 11 
minutes.
