Bullet R1 (Pre-Order)


Those of us who are passionate about coffee tend to obsess over it. We carefully measure out grams, seconds, and degrees. We fret over filters and grind-size. And we fanatically source our beans, happily chasing our favorite varieties to the ends of the earth. But there is one important variable that most of us aficionados have very little control over: the actual roasting of the beans.

Enter the Bullet R1, a roaster designed with our fellow coffee geeks in mind. We think you’ll agree: this machine is quite the looker. But we promise the Bullet R1 is more than just another pretty face. It is a true drum roaster, easily capable of bringing a full KG of beans to first crack in under 12 minutes – a remarkable feat for a machine that plugs into a standard wall socket.

And the Bullet R1 is highly responsive to user input, giving you precise control over drum speed, fan speed, and heating power during the course of each roast. You can take samples mid-roast using the "tryer", sneak a peak at your beans through the sight glass, or obsessively monitor the numbers on the LCD control-panel – it’s all up to you.
