  • Aillio R1 Bullet

    So I haven't seen a post on this yet but here is a new roaster coming out hopefully this year!

    Currently in late prototyping stages it is shaping up nicely and specs are as follows:

    1kg batch size
    ET and BT measuring
    front display with the 2 temp readings, can also display RoR and other important stuff
    US 120v and 240v models
    1550w power which when combined with the high efficiency of the design can translate to sufficient power for the batch size
    USB ports and potential to share profiles and the like in the future.

    Computer controlled roasting
    Manual / Automatic control
    10 Power levels
    10 Fan speed levels
    Variable Drum speed
    External cooling tray
    USB: Computer logging / control

    Compensation to control input power fluctuations.
    Roast cycles: no limit
    5.6L Steel Drum
    Fully insulated
    Quiet operation
    Easy cleaning

    Length (without Cooling tray): 560mm
    Width: (Legs) 320mm
    Height: (without funnel): 390mm
    Weight: TBC

    There is a tonne of info on the homeroasters.org site and they even have the creator of it on there answering questions. There is a possibility of a tour through EU, USA and Aus this year.

    Looks a beauty and priced between a hottop and the cheap chinese 1kgs. ~2k?

    2.8 kg with 1500W? I doubt it.. #30minroast

      Thermal efficiency is definitely the million dollar question. The hints they provide seem to point to a more direct method of heating the drum than the standard electric element then large air filled void then drum.

      The 2.8 kg is apparently the weight of the drum. The roaster itself is claimed to have 1 kg roasting capacity and they've shown profiles that are teens or less minutes into second crack.

        Interesting. A 1kg drum roaster that is plug and play in the home using 1500 W meaning no need for a 20amp power source. They claim they did 1kg 20-30 seconds into 2nd crack within 12 mins. I wonder what kind of heat source and air combination they are using to achieve that with 1500w.

          Hi, this is Jonas from Aillio

          If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here, and I will be happy to answer as much as I can. We are applying for a few patents, and the drum heating being one of them, so for these questions, I wont be able to say too much at this stage.

            The obvious questions then: when can we buy and how much will it cost (locally)?

                Hi fruity.
                We feel confident that it will be ready by the end of the year. As for the final price our aim is somewhere on the lower side of 2K US$

                  Hi Rolf

                  Could you explain a bit more about what you mean about connections?
                  Our design and engineering is done in Denmark, so we are here already.

                  We have started a UK company that will deal with getting everything approved so that each distributor does not have to go through this.
                  Our other products are already being sold in Europe.

                    Jonas,

                    I'd like to ask about cleaning please. One of the things I'm attracted to in a good 500 g or 1 kg roaster is that there is a separate cyclone that makes chaff much easier to handle and makes the roaster much cleaner. I have a small roaster which I need to break apart relatively frequently to take care of dust and chaff. Will your roaster be much friendlier in this regard?

                    Thanks,
                    Terence

                      Hi Terence

                      As on the big roaster, the chaff will be taken out with the airflow. The fan motor and drum motor is completely separated from the chaff collector. The chaff collector which can be taken off, is half of the back part of the roaster. The other half is for the motors.
                      There are seals that make the chaffcollector airtight with the fan.
                      One of the things we really like is how easy it is to take out the impeller. Just one screw and you can pull it out as the chaffcollector covers half the fan housing.
                      Then you can soak it to clean out the oils.

                      Air pipes are sealed so I would be surprised if you find any chaff where they shouldn't be.

                        Hi Jonas
                        This is a really interesting looking little roaster - 1kg for sub $2.5-3K aussie will gather lots of interest!
                        Look forward to seeing the ongoing development…

                            Certainly looks very interesting. Haven't been too many updates anywhere for a while - does the developer have any updates to share? I'm sure there are lots of people curious to know how things are going.

                              Updates! https://m.youtube.com/watch?utm_medi...&v=uaQkpjsSjcE

                              Well it's more a showing of it in action. Looks cool and quite sizeable. Next video will show the PC interface. Wonder how Jonas and Co. will tackle the flying beans coming from the dump door?
