PRIMO: Solid As They Come

Comes with an OPTIONAL Afterburner!

Made in USA

Here's a 20 kilo Primo Roaster that is as solid of a machine as you can ask for, backed by a USA company that stands behind their products.

Purchased new in 2002 it's been a mainstay of the current owner's growth for the last 19 years. This roaster was replaced last year with a 2 bagger but it still has a lot to give. It's a USA built Primo! This machine still roasts coffee with no issues!

Primo makes "high-deco" very modern-looking roasting machines that are basic and easy to operate and allow the operator to control every detail of the roast. 

Modifications made to this 20 kilo Primo roaster

  • Magnets added to discharge
  • Drum shaft modified to have big nut on the end to turn manually in case of power outage/emergency
  • In its last few years of use we preemptively switched out the burner igniter every six months. (Please take note that this ignitor is modified. A hole must be drilled and threaded into new parts order to fit next to the burner.)

The following are a list of spare parts included;

  • Burner igniter
  • Cooling bin fan (housing and impeller)
  • Cooling bin housing
  • Cyclone motor
  • Newer Primo model drum motor
  • Tools

BONUS: This Primo roaster package also Includes a Power Flame JA 1082 Afterburner! See pictures!

 Primo Roasters


With over 27 ​years of expertise and experience, Primo Roasting Equipment is proud to be regarded as a manufacturing leader. As veterans in the industry, Primo Roasting Equipment has a wealth of knowledge and expertise that’s incomparable. We utilize this experience to provide both companies and individuals with quality and innovative products they can truly count on.

In all machine sizes, Primo roasters use 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. The precise hot airflow roasts the beans with as little drum contact as possible. Primo roaster’s features create a steady bean pattern and a consistent, quality roast.

The high processing quality of the Primo PRI series is partly thanks to its premium design. The machines roast and cool simultaneously, with individual exhaust for cooling and roasting air. The use of an automated gas control with infrared ceramic burner technology ensures ease of use and consistent batch quality control. The two-stage temperature controller with automatic thermal control comes standard on all Primo roasters.

The PRI-35 roaster can roast batch sizes between 30-45 pounds and has a roasting capacity of 140lb (15Kg) per hour. The PRI-35 is specially developed for smaller businesses. With an output of up to 140 lbs per hour, this roaster is perfect for roasting, testing, and mastering specialty coffee.
