  • Roaster

    I was in Parramatta today for a job interview when I spotted this old piece of machinery outside the building I was going to.

    Looks like some kind of coffee roaster to me.

    Were they roasting coffee in colonial days?

    They certainly did roast coffee in colonial days...this looks like a Heath Robinson roaster.

    Or a siege weapon

        YEs - but it is missing the arm that flings the hot coffee beans at your enemy - oh to be the enemy in the face of such largesse!

                  Looks like a Railroad type of coffee roaster, used in the early days to provide freshly roasted coffee to railroad workers laying cross country tracks. ;-)

                    There were no signs indicating its origin.

                      Or maybe a prototype Has Garanti...

                      Though the current models are very similar..
