What is a fluid bed coffee roaster?
Are these coffee roasters efficient?
Can fluid bed coffee roasters process smaller batches than their rated capacity?
It is common for fluid bed coffee roasters to accurately roast coffee beans at full batch, half batch or quarter batch capacity.
What are other advantages of hot air fluidizing coffee roasters?
Control: Fluid bed coffee roasters offer a high degree of control over the roasting process as the bean temperature and roasting air temperature can be accurately measured during roasting. This allows the roasting operator to fine-tune the roast profile to suit the desired flavour characteristics of the roasting coffee. This is very useful for specialty coffee roasters who are looking to highlight the unique flavors and characteristics of different coffee beans.
Energy efficiency: Fluid bed coffee roasters are typically more energy-efficient than drum roasters, as they use less energy to heat the beans and maintain a consistent temperature during the roasting process. Moreover, they do not waste energy required to warm up the roasting appliance as the heat is directly applied from the hot air to the roasting coffee.
Noise level: Fluid bed coffee roasters are typically quieter than drum roasters, which can be an important consideration for some roasters.
