  • Garanti Roaster

    Well all i can say is i had a lucky week. While on a drive up Mt Tamborine with the family for holidays we stopped at Mount Tamborine Coffee Plantation. While having the best coffee i had gotten since leaving home for the holidays I decided to get 1kg of green to take home.
    When Kees bought the beans out we started chatting and i got the tour of the place. Then he showed me his old Roaster and said i could buy it if i wanted. We went home and i talked it over with my accountant and she said yes buy it, so yesterday i bought this....

      Just for me atm. But looking into setting it up as a small roasting business in Weipa. I get alot of interest when people try the fresh roasted coffee from my Gene, so this will make it easier to roast for others. Even if that doesnt take off,, it will be a sweet home roaster that saves me alot of roasting time as we use 1kg a week just for us

                          Wow... somehow I was picturing something enormous, like a couple of metres tall. Maybe something that size would fit in my shed...
