        Looks pretty cool and very well built. Wondering why they cancelled their kickstarter campaign to raise money.

          Me too....

          Gas compliance would likely be an issue for Australian use...

          Looks cute though...

            These machines are completely and meticulously hand-built by the designer. They are a work of industrial art.

              They hand build the roasters in the UK. I have a direct email to contact Johan. Is gas not allowed in Australian roasters?

                Absolutely allowed. The overwhelming majority of our commercial roasters are gas fired.

                I'm pretty sure that what Chris is referring to is if the roasters are imported with a gas train already fitted then they would have to comply with Australian Standard specs.

                Compliance testing is a lengthy, involved and costly process which may result in the need for an Australian specific model or the supply to an Australian importer without

                any gas and or electric components. The importer would then fit the necessary components here, to meet Australian standards. Either way would add AUD$$$ to the retail price.

                    Yes, but if that's just a straight currency exchange value it won't take into account shipping, import duty, compliance costs and whatever other costs are involved.

                    My guess? Between AUD$4000-$6000 retail ??

                      That price was including shipping og the duty/taxes within EU countries. Not sure about the rules from UK to Australia, but is there some sort of commonwealth tax/duty?

                              Cool!
                              Out of curiosity how much was the roaster, freight, custom duties...
                              I am really scared to ask since I suddenly want one...
