    This looks like a really good roaster! Already know of one guy in Denmark who has bought one.

    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...

    Behmor Coffee Roaster
    The FILTHY SPAMMER LINK REMOVED as fresh as possible, store them in a cool, dry place in a completely airtight container. If you aren't going to be using the beans in a timely manner, especially if you already ground them, then you should keep them in the freezer to help preserve their flavor.


    Admin note:

    This filthy spam was brought to you by Coffex coffee.
    Really poor form from an Aussie company.

    Do yourself a favour and NEVER buy another Coffex coffee.
