I would be in for a unit in Toronto if we can get enough buyers together for the discount.
Let me know, mission@sympatico.ca

Anybody selling the Quest M3 in Canada yet?

If not, what is the best way to get one? Is it cheaper to order direct from Taiwan or through CoffeeShrub in the US?

Any idea of the cost with shipping and customs included?

...I have been quietly reading many posts by people in the US who own a Quest and the following points have come up.

People have been blocking the inlet hole for better warmup/heating
Trying no fan speed for faster ramp up
adding hot air to the inlet hole, some considering one post on the web where someone had done so
Comments about metal discolouration around the heating element areas.
Some misconceptions about the airflow within the roaster (especially when people had little experience with it in the early days)
Not enough discussions about warmup times
Not enough discussions about drop temps etc.........

.....

Brilliant post Dave.

I'm SO glad I read your post BEFORE following some of the "Quest roasting recipes" out there from US owners on other websites (which I am convinced can seriously lower the life of your machine).

BTW, my new Aug 2012 machine arrived with a 1020W badge on the side.

For anyone thinking of buying a Quest in Canada...buying direct from Taiwan was incredibly smooth. Triple boxed, great communication, and arrived in only 5 days (much cheaper too). Although duty was $61 (not $0 as someone else claimed).

Direct from Taiwan from which website?
duty... always a mystery will be charged this time or not? :-)....

Total cost if you don't mind?

thx

You can order direct from Mr.Yen. Just visit his site on Alibaba:

Click Here (www.alibaba.com)

Cost was $960. Shipping was $140, tax and duty was $215, all of which you would pay anyway if you bought from the US. So I figure you save at least $350 buying direct. Plus you get the "Canadian edition" with the more powerful heater.
