Topic: 1.25# sub $2k pro-roaster (24 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
This recent discussion of S&J roaster etc. reminded me of the Sivetz 1.25#
roaster. Looked into it a couple years ago, was around $1,500 IIRC. (pricing
not on their website) 240v 3.5kw 15A. Basic thermocouple hi-temp end of
roast control. I may have to plan a road trip to Corvallis OR in the not to
distant future to really check it out:)
I know many of the Kona farmers who sell roasted to order use Sivetz. Gus @
Pele used the 5# 240v Sivetz for years, added the 12# 240v last year. David
@ Premium Kona started with a S&J (SonoFresco) - added a couple more - then
got a Sivetz for larger batches. Others use drums, Kona Mountain &
PurpleMountain come to mind, same differing opinions as everywhere on which
is better!
