Do you mean the roaster? Even though there are smaller ones, 60 kg is not unusual and still small for a commercial roaster. Some industrial drum roasters can manage a batch of beans up to 640 kg. I guess it all depends on your planed output.

It depends on how you would classify the news if it is huge or old for you. But the roasting plant has not open yet and it will be opened on the last week of August. This is great news for coffee drinkers in LA, although it affects other coffee business there. Moreover, competitors of coffee business may be affected by the competition but advantageous for coffee customers to have a coffee in convenience and possibly enjoy coffee at lower price.
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine. www.coffeeloversmag.com/theMagazine
