Hi all,

I am in the process of putting together the business plan for my first roastery. We are a small operation based out of North London (think 6 covers) and are looking to build an initially small customer base of cafes and bars who will retail our branded coffee. My question is two fold: can anyone recommend a good roaster to start us out (it would need to supply our small coffee shop plus have capacity for wider retail and wholesale - let's say 10 pubs and restaurants initially)? Secondly, does anyone know of a good direct trade green bean buying consortium that involves smallish enterprises in the UK? I am busy doing my own research, but it would be useful to get any knowledge from people already in the business...

Cheers guys,

I'm looking for a 12-15 kilo roaster! Anyone have one for sale or know anyone? Thanks for the info guys
Comment by Joseph Robertson on March 28, 2010 at 12:47pm
Actually the Ambex worked pretty good when I got it plumbed in. Mostly good.The fire I had with the first roast was due to a very dirtly machine. No temp control on the bean mass like my Probat. Not much $ to add that the rep told me. For 4K it was not in bad shape at all for a used 1999. We sold it because we needed $ at the time and I really look forward to a new USRC like Mike M. has.
