    considering the shelf life of roasted coffee.

    2-3 kg is very big for personal use or small for commercial use.

    Agreed. One thing to keep in mind is that with Andys CS roastmonitor software, multimeter and probe, you will easily roast down to 20-25% of capacity. 2kg is no problem whatsoever in my 10kg. A 1-2kg is fine as hobby roaster.

    I always advise that for any commercial viability whatsoever, youd need to seriously consider a 5kg. Any lower and you will find youre working for nothing. Your time, greens, energy requirements and packaging all need to be factored into these decisions.

    Cheers
