Primo Roasting Hand-Crafts Gorgeous Coffee Roasters That Are Easy to Use, Reliable, and Produce Phenomenal Roasted Beans

We’re on a roll, folks! We’ve just added another company, Primo Roasting Equipment, to our growing CoffeeTec Vendor Network — connecting you to interesting, quality, affordable coffee roasting products made by manufacturing innovators. Here’s a quick rundown of why we love them and why you will too:

Who Is Primo Roasting Equipment?

Based in Orange County’s county seat of Santa Ana, California, Primo Roasting Equipment is regarded as a manufacturing leader with more than 27 years of expertise and experience. 

The Primo Roasting team, led by Brandon Miller, is energetic and passionate about hand-building beautiful coffee roasters from high-quality American steel in a range of five sizes to suit every coffee roastery or cafe’s need — from 2.5 kilos to 30 kilos.

What Sets Primo Roasters Apart?

Primo Roasting Equipment’s full line of hand-made roasters uses specially designed paddle mechanisms to move the coffee in the drum efficiently, creating an even roast throughout the beans. The variable rotation speed allows different batch sizes to be roasted on the same machine.

The drum, airflow, and paddles keep the movement of the beans consistent inside the drum. And, the precise hot airflow roasts the beans with as little drum contact as possible. The result? You get a steady bean pattern and a consistent, quality roast. 

Here are a few more features we love: 

  • The machines roast and cool simultaneously, with individual exhaust for cooling and roasting air. 
  • The use of automated gas control with infrared ceramic burner technology ensures ease of use and consistent batch quality control. 
  • The two-stage temperature controller and automatic thermal control come standard on all Primo roasters. The former allows you maximum control of your roasting profile, and the latter make continuous production easy and reliable.

From 2.5 to 30 Kilos, There’s Something For Everyone! Let’s Take A Quick Tour:
