Specialty Coffee Deserves Fluidized Bed Air Roasting

Piccolo Chinook – Our cafe coffee roasting engine

We are air coffee roasting specialists

Our designs are informed by:

30 years air coffee roasting experience since 1991

the latest process control software & hardware

post roast quality control instrumentation

Our ethos is based on science

a valuable human should not be required to control repetitive batch roasting

humans are not suited to repetitive analogue real-time processes

human acuity is insufficient for controlling multiple analog roasting inputs

a roasting appliance should provide accurate real-time digital information to the operator

The secret of success

Roasting control software should complete the process consistently without human intervention

Roasting control software should provide a digitally accurate smooth graph depicting the process rate of rise “ROR”
Successful roasting outcomes can be accurately tested/predicted using a near infrared spectrophotometer
