Thousands of interesting and unusual machines have been created over the years for the sole purpose of roasting coffee. All of these machines leave their individual signature on the roast. We have three unique machines from the 1940s through to the 1970s. We derive a great deal of pleasure in giving old machinery a new lease of life and this has guided our roasting journey.

  • FIMT Woodburning Roaster 1950s

    The FIMT was built in the 1950s to run on both gas and wood. We are fortunate enough to be able to run this roaster on solar dried Cornish oak wood from a local, sustainable supply: an almost carbon-neutral coffee roasting fuel. Wood roasting creates a very distinct flavour profile.

  • UNO Roaster 1940s

    Built in the 1940s, the UNO roaster was very popular throughout the UK and a very common shop roaster in its day. The roasting drum is open to the air, giving the operator a real connection to the roast. A true sight, sound, and smell experience.

  • Probat GN12 1970s

    Probat started out in 1868! Our GN12 is the only machine we own that has been adapted to use roasting software. This model shares many design features with roasters Probat were producing in the 1920s - and Probat continues to make similar machines to this day.
