Just finished roasting a 9 lb batch of Nicaragua Dipilto... It was flawless!!!! Thx again!!!
Only 31 pounds to go;)
The roast is perfectly even throughout the entire batch... Fabulous!
My first 5lb roast was all over the place, but I leveled the drum (not the BBQ), and it came out perfect
I have been roasting for 3 years as a hobby and many of my family members and friends have suggested that I should start to sell my coffee. Within the second year of sales, my first roaster could not keep up with the overwhelming demand of Tom’s Best Coffee. I have since upgraded to the premium RK Drum Roaster, which allows me to produce my product more efficiently. My customers can tell a big difference in the quality of my roast. I not only recommend this roaster but I give a A+ to Shane for his customer service.

Got the new clip, and pop riveted it on. Must have taken me all of 2 minutes!
Just completed roasting 20 pounds of various beans, and I LOVE the new clip!!!!
No more fiddling around with the pin, just pop it out, flip the clip, dump the beans, and on to the next batch.
As you mentioned in your review, a bit less noise, and much faster turnaround times between roasts.
Still regret not going with the 6 pound drum.
Ditto and more. Fantastic product, but more importantly, great service before and even better after. RK for President!
Well, 700+ lbs of coffee roasted in the last year and a half since purchasing my Drum....and still banging out some of the best coffee to be found anywhere.
(if I don't say so myself) My friends, family, and even a couple dozen "Customers"?....people who have adopted me as their coffee supplier will attest- good beans, fire steel (the RK ) and man it makes some good coffee,
thanks much again,
Glacier Coffee Roasters.
