A new model of Specialty Roaster TT 5/10, the Petroncini roasting machine that roasts from 3 to 10kg per batch, is set to go on display at Sigep. Compact and easy to install, thanks to its single-phase power system, the new TT5/10 has been designed for small specialty roasteries and for coffee research and training centres.

Thanks to heat control, roasting air volume and the drum rotation speed, this roasting machine can in fact let you vary the method of transferring heat to the bean, achieving a perfect balance between convection and conduction, according to the desired end product.

We can thus succeed in achieving countless sensory profiles, developing the coffee’s deepest aromas, from light roasting to the very darkest.
