Subject: 220V Roaster wanted for sailboat
 

We are heading out soon for a multi year sailing adventure (Mexico, South Pacific, ....).  I'm really going to miss my home coffee roaster.

Our boat is European and has 220V system, and I'd rather get a new roaster than buy a heavy duty step down (220v-110v) transformer.  Can anyone recommend a North American dealer for 220V home roasters?  I'm looking for smaller models.  Any recommendations for which machine would be good too.

Thanks in advance

There's a dealer who has the European version of the I-roast2 listed on Ebay.  Still had 4 left when I checked the link for ya.  

Click Here (www.ebay.com)

If your on rough water you may have issues with the iroast because you need to be on a leveled surface for it to work properly.  I would go with the Behmor 1600 or Hottop.  They both are available overseas if you go to the dealer they will send you a 220v.  I've owned the Behmor and it's a great roaster.

As you may know, 220V heaters work fine on 110V just by adding a diode.  Only the fans and electronic sections need a step down transformer (which makes it much smaller).

I think you're a little confused.  You're going to have to explain this issue of using a diode on a heater.  No way I know of that this would work in the real world.  Besides, the OP has 220 volts as his source and wants to use a 220 volt roaster, not using a step down xformer, which would be huge and expensive, to run a 110 volt 1500 watt roaster.

Thanks for the help.

We're only going to be using the coffee roaster when we're safely anchored or docked somewhere, so the rough seas are not an issue.

I was talking to Gene Lemos at www.vanelis.com and he also recommends the Behmor as well and can get one in for me.

Now, the new question is availability of green beans in Mexico and the South Pacific.  Anyone have any input?
It might seem like a dumb question, but when I was touring Guatemala the supermarket had a ton of instant "coffee" and just some brands of real coffee (all pre-ground).

Buy the greens before you go.  Keep them sealed against the weather and they might last as long as a year.

Yeah I would definitely pick up before leaving.  For example there are a ton of companies in the U.S that offer coffee from around the world.  Why not just get it all in one place.
