That site translates quickly into English via Google Chrome, and the text is very interesting. It talks about special steel imported from Japan, build quality and other features.

It looks to be very, very similar to the Santoker/Revolution design, albeit one blower instead of a dedicated cooling tray blower for a total of 2. These things are certainly feature rich for the money. I like the attention to the paintwork too. The damper after the cooling tray exhaust might allow you to run the blower more aggressively as a drum dedicated fan if it cuts off airflow well to the tray. Mine behaves similarly, albeit crudely.

Cafeli is a company in Veracruz, Mexico that apparently has a dealer in Oregon. I found them while browsing the local Craigslist. Their smallest roasters are 1 - 2 Kg and 2 Kg. Here's their website:

This morning at my local Farmers Market I met the folks from Retrograderoasters who were offering espressos and pourovers using freshly ground beans recently roasted on their HUKY500. They are selling coffee and beans at three local farmers markets and have logged over 500 roasts on their HUKY. It certainly belongs in this list.

why is there no reference anywhere to buckeye coffee arizona or sedona roasters? They are all over ebay.

I have never seen a single thing online about them besides their website, and ebay...odd.

They're Santokers. Their Youtube video is almost laughable. Such critical acclaim from whatever phantoms they conjured up on their own. I'm not saying the roasters are bad at all, they're quite the value, but the marketing is a bit of a joke.

Wow, that video is unbelievably stupid. I saw they were bringing these in and rebranding them a few months ago. They are also charging double what I was when I was bringing these over.
