  • IKAWA microroaster

    Apparently shown at the London Coffee Festival a few days ago.

    http://www.ikawacoffee.com/system/

    By "micro", meaning 50g batches. No pricing as it seems not to be in full-scale production yet, and the information is somewhat sketchy.

    Is there anything to it?

    the concept sounds great for sample roasting on a consistent level

      I can see it being really useful for blend roasting. I know using my coretto, if I wanted to do a 4 bean blend, Id be roasting a big batch. And i probably wouldnt be able to use in time. :P

          My guess is that it will be a very expensive little roaster. Very cute though and its appearance suggests its well made.

          Im not sure I understand the intent behind it. As a commercial sample roaster it would be very hard to translate profiles from this to a big drum roaster.

            even if the profiles are somewhat lost in translation maybe it would be good for testing samples of green beans- and getting idea abouts what type of roasts they are suited to, and blending options?

            Perhaps of some use to green been growers and buyers?

            It certainly is a good looking machine: I like the idea of roasting micro batches at my desk as I work... cool must have coffeesnob USB peripheral device.
