Probat Roasters by CoffeeTec

This classic piece of German engineering, dating back to 1964 and refurbished in 1991, retains its original gunmetal blue finish, showcasing over two centuries of manufacturing excellence. Fueled by Natural Gas and powered with 240v/60Hz/single phase, this Probat UG-15n is not just a roaster; it's a legacy.

Capable of handling 15-kilo batches, it effortlessly delivers up to 4 batches per hour – a workhorse roaster designed to meet and exceed your expectations. Purchased fully refurbished by PROBAT USA in 1991, under the management of Mr. Peter Von Gimborn, it adheres to Canada and USA standards.

Having been lightly used for approximately 900 hours from 1991 to 2003, processing 576 bags of green coffee, this roaster has a history of excellence. Its last production roast was in 2003, and the recent video test roast proves its ongoing perfection.

Now, available for a new owner, this Probat UG-15n is ready to return to a roastery with pride. The current, one-time owner, no longer in the business, invites you to bring this sweetheart of a classic piece back to work. It's prepared for disassembly, freight preparation, and integration into your roastery.
