Thanks, but he appears to be in Europe. Maybe check with one of the European resellers.

UK: www.thecoffeeworkshop.co.uk site not up yet, but same guys as http://www.thecoffeeworkshop.co.nz/ -they wrote the English manual for the TJ-067 so I didn't have to.

Poland: www.palarkadokawy.pl

Spain: www.tostadorasdecafe.com

Tim has all the resellers listed here: http://www.northcoffeeroaster.net/ (go to "Company Profile")

They have a CE and IEC certs and ship to Europe all the time.

I'd bet dollars to doughnuts Roasterlover is affiliated with the company and just looking to get some attention. His manner of post carefully skirts the rules.

Tell me I'm wrong Roasterlover?

I'm a maintenance tech. in a vinyl extrusion plant for a large manufacturing Co.. Recently (last year or two) we picked up a couple smaller extruders from China. Much less expensive than others. Even with $100,000 equipment Chinese made crap is still Chinese made crap. might as well have come from harbor freight. Cheap materials and a PITA to work on. If you intend to use something for a number of years, definitely better to pay the extra money and buy quality!

Have you checked out the new Gene Cafe 1 KG roaster? Looks like a pretty good roaster for a small cafe. You'd want a reliable, quality built roaster for a commercial establishment, not Chinese junk that will need to be replaced in a couple years.

No offence to those using them- I'm sure for home use they would probably hold up fine. I know there are a number of happy owners around the forums. This isn't directed at you folks.

Hey Ron, I'll second that with the New Gene Cafe 1kg CBR-1200 electric roaster.

I'll just pop in a link to a review

Click Here (www.bellabarista.co.uk)

And if roasterlover has any more links, I'm sure I can find loads more Gene Cafe CBR-1200 1kg small roaster ideal for shop or cafe links ;)

Nice Korean Engineering that will outlast cheaper Chinese roasters

Ron...can I have a few dollars, or doughnuts m8, either will do!

How about cooling it on the "Chinese junk" BS until you have actually been up to your elbows in one?

Having designed and built (American made) process equipment for a living for almost 30 years, I think I'm qualified to gauge the build quality of just about anything. I wouldn't be importing these things and warranting them myself if they didn't stack up.

I'm easy to find, answer my own phone, and my door is usually open. Anytime you want to demo a machine long enough to form a valid opinion, one way or another, give me a call, come up to Minneapolis, and roast a batch or two. I'll send you home with a bag of pretty good coffee and likely a whole new perspective on "Chinese junk."
