North Coffee Equipment is based out of Shenzhen City and offers several roasters that are relatively affordable. Mill City Roasters is the exclusive North American distributor for these roasters. They administer the warranty and provide service and tech support as well. They have larger capacity roasters available but the information below is for the TJ-067 roaster which is the 1 Kg capacity roaster that I am interested in (electric and gas options available). You can find them on the web by clicking the logo below and can find them on Facebook:
I began to research these roasters as a possible upgrade from my Huky 500 (which was an upgrade from the Behmor 1600, itself an upgrade from the air poppers) and the roaster is a potential future purchase for me.
There is some good information on the web about these roasters and it is very positive overall. I have yet to find any negative commentary about the roasters. The following review from Home Barista is detailed and informative and includes a lot of pictures.
