The roaster I am using in Manila is a 5kg Has Garanti. First time I have roasted on one- usually Probat, Toper and a Diedrich way back in Auckland in my early days. Still waiting my own greens here so had a dry run to check airflow and the exhaust flue setup using local greens. The roaster had been new into storage 2017- so I also had to rewire the ignition system- no sweat. Also required some work on the gas system- checking it thoroughly before firing it up.

hAll in all everything went ok. Looking forward to roasting my own coffee in the near future- means (post covid) I will be regularly roasting in 3 countries- Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines. 

Keep safe everyone, happy NY - cheers Alun Evans, Antipodean
