Subject: Does a fluid bed sample roaster exist?
 

I am currently using a Behmor 1600 for sample roasting.  I roast 666 g batches in my Sono and I am looking for a sample fluid bed roaster to match it.  The Behmor is great but I am looking for something with a very small footprint that isn't a popper.  Considered the Nesco and the FR500 but I wonder if there is anything specific in the fluid bed world.

Having experience with both units you mentioned, I would say no! You must build your own. Also the Nesco is NOT a fluid-bed roaster.

There is, and http://www.fracino.com/machines/roastilino.html would seem to fit the bill,  but you'd need a 230v supply, and I doubt they have any service agents in North America, so both big minus points ;o(  

Have no personal experience, but one of the guys on home-barista has one (in NL), has posted quite a few times with pics, and seems to think it's a great piece of kit.

(I'm biased as they are made only about 5km from where I live, but have no business affiliation with them.)

Toper makes something http://www.toper.com/e-coffee-roaster-optical.html

Probably costs more then a sono though.

The Toper you reference looks eerily similar to the Roastilino discussed by Mr. Blankman (___________).

"The theatrical delight sees the beans dance in the hot air while undergoing a mesmerising transformation from green to lightly roasted hazelnut – and finally to a shade of rich brown. Roastilino’s captivating experience is second to none."

Sounds like my second ex-wife describing her attributes.  Couldn't help there, can't help here.

It is laughable. Sounds as if it's been written by someone who writes holiday brochures.

Yeah I wasn't looking to spend much.  Both the toper and the other are a bit expensive.  I am ok using the behmor if it's the only option or just buy extra when sampling so I can use the Sono.  I swear I have seen one tho.. Just wish I could find it.


Has anybody had good experience with the SR500?
