Changes behind the scenes at TeenyTinyCoffeeCompany continue to unfold and to then manifest themselves in the most amazing ways! With the order of our newest 2 lb'er from Coffee Kinetics, the makers of the Sono Fresco Roaster, we also added the U shaped venting system custom built for us in Burlington, Washington. The U-shape vent complete with light, fan, exhaust and style, at no extra charge, allows for proper venting of the hot exhaust gases during the roasting process. CO2 monitoring has also been added and we are WELL BELOW the atmospheric venting standards as established by the EPA. TeenyTinyCoffeeCompany is a green operation!
The Sono Fresco roaster with its tiny footprint is the ideal green machine for coffee roasting. No after burner is required thus saving us huge amounts in additional propane to fire such device and keeps BACT or Best Available Clean Technology as our established roasting technology parameter in effect.
Here are some images from the recent vent addition. Chief Engineer, Roy Barush did an excellent job with installation and also all of the fittings required for proper venting. This is the standard for all configured Sono Fresco roasters at TeenyTinyCoffeeCompany and insures that atmospheric venting is done within established guidelines and protocols as established by the EPA respectively.
