Revolutionizing Coffee Roasting with the new Air Roaster —

Experience Unparalleled Flavor and Precision with the Next-Generation Drum Roasting Machine..

Hey, fellow coffee lovers!

As part of unveiling our latest creation, the Evolution Series - an AI-enabled smart coffee bean roaster that's set to revolutionize the coffee industry - we are excited to delve into a comprehensive exploration of each of its unique features.

In this blog, we will delve deep into the transformative power of Active Heat Transfer Technology, a cutting-edge feature that is poised to redefine how coffee beans are roasted.

We'll also explore the visionary work of Neil Maree, who has ingeniously re-designed the roasting drum and heat transfer technology to elevate the art of coffee bean roasting to new heights. So grab your favourite cup of joe and join us as we discover the secrets behind this innovative approach to roasting coffee beans!


Before we delve into this exciting advancement, let's take a moment to understand the current landscape of coffee roasting machines.
Traditional commercial roasters typically feature drum designs that have served the industry well for years. These drums are designed to provide an even heat distribution and allow for the roasting process to take place.

However, despite their effectiveness, traditional drum roasters have their limitations. Coffee roasters often face challenges in maintaining consistency, optimizing heat transfer, and achieving desired flavor profiles. This has led to a quest for innovation, pushing the boundaries of what's possible in coffee roasting technology.


Enter Neil Maree, the visionary designer and experienced coffee roaster who looked beyond the confines of traditional coffee roasting and sought inspiration from unexpected sources.

Drawing inspiration from jet engines and the technology behind turbines, Neil embarked on a mission to design a new way of roasting coffee beans that would revolutionize the industry.

By Understanding that heat is the key to unlocking the rich flavours and aromas hidden within each bean, Maree recognized the efficiency and precision achieved by jet engines and aimed to bring those principles to the art of coffee roasting.

By studying the inner workings of turbine technology, he envisioned a drum roaster that could maximize heat transfer, optimize airflow, and offer unparalleled control over the roasting process.

Old vs. New Design 

❌ Air is applied from the back of the drum✅ Perforated design which allows heat to enter from all sides
❌ As the air travels through the length of the drum, each layer of beans gets subjected to different temperatures✅ Air is actively sucked and compressed from the roast chamber to the
front of the drum. The rear layer of beans is subjected to the same heat and air pressure as the front laye
❌ Air used the path of least resistance✅ Air is forced through the entire surface area
✅ Double wal✅ Double conical wall with perforated inner and solid outer walls
❌Single bean temperature probe measures TEMPERATURE, not HEAT✅ 3x Bean temperature sensor array indicates HEAT, not TEMPERATURE

Roaster Specifications

  • Roast Time: 8 -12 minutes
  • Nominal Batch Size: 6kg

Now, let's talk about the science behind it all - the innovative drum roaster design that has everyone buzzing. This game-changing commercial coffee roasting machine introduces a host of features that elevate the roasting experience to new heights:

Enhanced heat transfer mechanisms: The innovative drum design ensures optimal heat distribution, allowing for precise control over the roasting process. This results in consistent and uniform roasts, unlocking the full potential of each coffee bean.

Optimal airflow control: By fine-tuning the airflow within the drum, coffee roasters gain unprecedented control over the roasting temperature. This level of precision enables them to achieve specific flavour profiles and tailor the roast to meet the preferences of their discerning customers.

Advanced automation and programmable controls: The future is here, and it's automated! Our innovative drum roaster comes equipped with state-of-the-art automation and programmable controls, empowering coffee professionals to streamline their operations and maintain consistent quality across batches.

The machine recirculates waste heat back into the roasting chamber, reducing fuel consumption and creating a sealed and consistent roasting environment.
