Roaster's Choice Lending


The crating [was] of a very robust build quality…and appears to have been very well constructed from top to bottom. I would like to thank you for a truly marvelous and world-class buying experience. CoffeeTec has provided me a superior service experience in helping me get into contact with the coffee roasting tools I needed to enhance my roastery's development goals! Kudos! — John M.


You won't believe how easy it is for CoffeeTec to sell your used equipment!

Find Out How

"I originally listed on Craigslist and eBay. What a nightmare! I was dealing with tire kickers & low ball offers. The time it took with people was overwhelming! Then I found and listed my equipment with CoffeeTec. No downtime, buyer conversations, getting it ready to ship, and everything else making sure it was delivered. They handle it all with ease, and fast. The peace of mind is invaluable! And, I just keep on roasting…" — Chris M.

"I had to replace my 5k roaster that we used mainly for sampling with a SR due to changes in our facility. CoffeeTec located the exact Probat BSR2 I needed, and sold my 5k Ambex for top dollar. They also helped me with a new destoner at a great price. So easy. I'd recommend them to anyone needing or selling a coffee roaster. Thanks guys!" Jack P.

    CoffeeTec Vendor Spotlight: Lighttells

    When we added Lighttells to CoffeeTec’s Vendor Marketplace, we wrote an in-depth, feature-length article about how Lightells’ products—namely, their Color Analyzer and Moisture and Density Meter—are indispensable tools in the roast master’s arsenal for managing and refining roasting profiles.

"We needed to upgrade from a 3 lb. roaster that was working almost 10 hrs a day, 7 days a week, to a larger unit. CoffeeTec worked closely with us on the purchase of a Diedrich IR-12 which we financed through them. They also helped us with our new VortX Clean Air afterburner solution. The whole process was so easy. Can't thank them enough. Radically changed our business." — Stephan S.

Roastery Stories

    Roastery Story: Alamode Foods and Prestogeorge Coffee & Tea

    At CoffeeTec, we enjoy working with a wide range of buyers and sellers, whether you’re a startup coffee retail business, a mid-size roastery chain, or a roasting giant like Costco and Disney’s official roaster, Joffrey’s. All of our clients share a common passion for coffee roasting, whether they’ve been in the business for two years or two decades. Speaking of the latter, we’ve worked with several roastery/retail clients for whom coffee roasting is a family affair. For this Roastery Story, we were honored to connect two second-generation coffee-roasting clients — spanning from the Midwest’s “Windy City” to “Steel City” on the Northeast U.S.’s western frontier — to help them keep on roasting.

  • Roastery Story: Night Shift Brewing

    Roastery Story: Night Shift Brewing

    Night Shift Brewing had a potential private buyer for its Probat P12/2 — and they needed to sell it before their lease was up in 18 days. When we told them we could sell the Probat for more money — PLUS take care of all logistics, crating, and freighting — they gave us the listing. We listed the Probat P12/2 and sold it within a week. The sale transacted four days later through our private financing program. Our seller went on doing what they do best — and with more money in their pocket than they would have gotten by handling the sale themselves. And, we can do the same for you.
