For sale is a very lightly used (no shop/commercial environment), USA built, fully automated 2.5 kilogram / 5.5 pound capacity Diedrich model IR-2.5 roaster in black from 2016. Fully-automation equates to consistency and repeatability, ensuring a perfect roast batch after batch. Automation system includes LCD panel and control center for all regulating (time and heat - gas, air, etc.) Touchscreen comes with adjusting/articulating arm for viewing and operating comfort/ease. The full-automation feature and hardware is a $10,000 add-on to the base IR-2.5 model alone! Matching steel worktable is another $1000 upgrade. Capable of pumping out up to 22 pounds per hour, depending on your roast profile. Provides unparalleled precision and control over batches (sampling, small batch and to capacity). Efficiently uses infrared burners, producing evenly developed, clean yet complex coffees (if you source exquisite green). The roaster is in great condition (only a few little scratches and scuffs from normal wear). Operated sparingly as a personal, hobbyist roaster for less than a year (with intention of starting a business but then had to move for graduate school). It has been kept safe and sound in climate-cooled storage. It was cleaned and maintained after every use. Proper prep and between batch protocol as well. This beauty is ready to go either for a natural gas or liquid propone setup (conversion kit included, saving hundreds). No fires or damages. Includes external chaff collector and stainless-steel storage cabinet. Also willing to include venting if purchased at asking price. Great opportunity for you to own this gem. Original manuals, accessories and information are included. $20,000 or best reasonable offer. Asking price is $10,000 cheaper than purchase price (excluding all the taxes, fees, shipping, etc.) Local pickup preferred in NYC metropolitan area (Brooklyn). Willing to ship at buyer's expense. Thank you for your consideration.
