Meet developer of pioneering solutions, PROBAT
PROBAT has been developing pioneering solutions for the coffee industry for more than 150 years. The company is the world market and technology leader in coffee processing plant and machinery. Its range of services includes the development, design, and construction of roasters and grinders as well as the planning and implementation of industrial production facilities. Machine and plant controls, environmental technologies, and comprehensive services also make up part of PROBAT’s product portfolio.
At MICE 2023 PROBAT showcased the electrically heated specialty roaster P05e: This roaster is yet another proof to the fact that electric roasters can produce roasting results that are just as consistent and reproducible as those achieved with gas-powered machines. Contrary to popular belief in the coffee industry, the heat source has no effect on the development of flavor profiles, whether natural gas, hydrogen, or electricity. Step by step, PROBAT is supplementing its specialty roaster portfolio with electrically operated versions. The P01, P05e and P12e each have the same advanced features as the gas-heated models of the P series. The unique electrical hot air blower responds as instantly as a gas burner, without any delay in response time: it does not need time to cool down or heat up like traditional heating elements. Roasting times and flexibility are directly comparable, and roasting results from the gas-heated roasters can be safely transferred to the new electrical roasters while maintaining the same high quality and reproducibility. There is no difference in taste at all. For further information please visit www.probat.com!
