My wife and I started our downtown cafe in Cambridge, ON Canada 3 months ago. We have been using a 1 lb roaster and have already roasted over 100 pounds. These machines are work horses! We are able to keep an entire shelf of roasted coffee stocked fresh all the time and still have time to roast for the cafe itself. If you keep to the maintenance schedule it stays clean and runs great! Customers love to watch it whenever they come in and the roasting fragrance always brings people in off the street too. Were looking forward to adding another roaster to the cafe once we need it. Customers have commented on it’s taste and have said it produces a nice lively cup of coffee over other traditional roasters in the area.
