OCCHIOBELLO (Rovigo) – In the wake of European and global expansion, companies need the ability to continuously adapt to the latest industry trends. IMF meets Niko Sunko, Roastery Manager & Green Coffee Buyer at Bell Lane Coffee, to talk about the advantage features of choosing the Italian-manufactured roaster. Extensive knowledge of the raw product and punctual technical approach stand at the base of the strong growth of the Irish company located in Mullingar.

I wanted a machine that had NO limitations. So, after an extensive research IMF was the only machine that had no limitations when it comes to power or batch capacity. It is nice being able to roast a full batch in under 8 minutes. Being a full convection machine allows specialty roasters to roast few points lighter without risking underdevelopment.

All IMF models are, in fact, equipped with a particular system of recirculation of hot clean air through a single dual function combustion chamber, which makes it possible to generate the energy necessary for the roasting process. Moreover, reducing emissions at the same time and guaranteeing considerable energy savings with significant production costs reduction.
