The Diedrich 1 kg small batch roaster is perfect for start-up companies developing their own unique roast profiles and building their business.
Small or Specialty Coffee Batch
At some point, most café owners contemplate the pros and cons of leaving their coffee supplier to roast their own. It’s a big step that, for most, is financially unattainable. Roasterworks has changed all of that by eliminating your need to invest in a costly roaster. You can use ours! The Ambex YM roaster is the perfect solution to advance you from retailer to roaster/retailer. Work with our team to match your flavor profiles or develop some new ones of your own.
