10 kilo Samiac Cast Iron Drum Roaster - Used




10 kilo Classic Samiac Roaster with Cyclone

Ok, you just don't see these classics come by often! This is a 22 pound per batch French Samiac roaster that is in good condition, roasting with no issues at all. Has the classic cast iron drum like current Giesen and Joper machines. Samiacs were truly the Rolls Royce of Roasters in the early 1990s and Samiac roasters know it. These classic machines are in high demand.

This machine was purchased by current owner in 2021 but never hooked up to gas due to certain circumstances with tough city ordinances. He knows prior owners, both successful roasters, even getting to finals in competition with this machine. They sold due to leveling up to higher batch output.

Current owner has seen it run perfectly and enjoyed coffee from it. Has chosen to let it go and switch gears in operations. Hoping to see it go to a proud owner that will do with it what was originally planned.

The original crate wood is available and will impact the crate charges to a discount.

This Samiac 10 kilo roaster has 4 motors. 2 of them are less than a couple years old. Has Phidget installed for Cropster/Artisan Roast profile tracking. 

Set up for propane fuel. Comes with natural gas orifices for burners.

Owners notes: Try port is a little loose and the temp control is not accurate via the machine read out but accurate with Cropster or Artisan tracking, so the thermocouple/sending unit is solid. Replacement temp read out has been spec'd at a couple hundred dollar replacement item.

Couple cosmetic issues. Dent on brass drum cover, couple small spots of discoloration on brass drum small, a few scratches on chaff collector, black paint on back of roaster and hopper neck chipping off, crack in one panel of hopper glass, and missing a few screws.

 This is a classic Samiac, guys. You won't see another like this come by.
