Welcome to CoffeeGeek. While your roaster is way over the top of my budget I must say I would give it a serious look if I were in the market for one.

OldGearhead put a lot of time and effort into what is a very enviable roaster. You can check out the story here-

The easy way to control the temperature of this style roaster (Sivetz) is with the blower control.
The fastest roast occurs when you 'ride' the blower speed down as the beans get lighter during the roast.
I prefer to stretch the drying and first-crack phases a bit by only re-adjusting the blower speed at the 3 and 6 minute marks.

I like the "ArtFive" better than the Sono Fresco because it's a normal fluid-bed, and probably works better than the Sono with different size loads.
Although the large electrical load is probably a drawback for several users.

However, I would be curious about the MET (max temp of air entering the RC (roast chamber)).

I like fluid bed roasters , I own a sonofresco. But the coffeecrafters website needs a redesign , reminds me of the Monster Coffee website of years ago (scary). Electrical roaster would be great in Quebec where hydro power is cheapest in Canada.

Hi folks! I've been using a Artisan V for about 6 months, and for the most part it's serving it's purpose, "currently roasting about 50lb a week"

I do have my likes and dislikes about it, such as the mess from the chaff, "I'm assuming this is less a problem with the A6, bigger motor/blower"

My customers tell me everyday I have the best coffee in town, personally I love the clean air roast quality, and feel it's superior to gas drum roasting.
