Steve - regarding the Chai Latte question

As My Cuppa for a sample as lots of Crema members have sampled it and given his offering the thumbs up  :thumb:

KK

And if you want a great chocolate drink to go with the samples - grab some of MyCuppas No28 - brilliant

Suggestions had so far, and things to consider.
Probat burn roaster
Loring smart roaster.
5kg roaster, maybe not a 10 as first stated.
Consider an afterburner, since i will be in a primarily residential area.
Found contact details for people selling roasters in Sydney, Melbourne and Queensland.
Got Peter Wolffs contact details.
Possibility of some training in Sydney, not yet confirmed. 
Let's see how we go with that over the next coming week.
Thank you very much to all on this forum.  I know i may have sounded a bit rough at first in one of
my early posts, (where i talked about negativity)
but i apologise if my manner came across that way at all. 
See ya for now.

No problem Steve_01.  sometimes it just how things are read!  One of the hazards of communication on a forum! :)  Keep up the posts as you travel along, and let us know what decisions you make.  I'm sure others will be interested or willing to give a hand.

Hi Steve,
I am a builder and I know nothing of the coffee industry. However, as a business owner of several businesses and as a Builder I have had some experience dealing with local Councils. If I may offer just one piece of advice....
If you have any plans whatsoever to operate any sort of business whatsoever from home- you are 'dancing with the Devil' if you do not first apply for and obtain all relevant approvals, in writing, from your local Council. AND understand this... In the LIKELY event that 'someone' complains about your roaster... All those plans and permits you worked so hard for can and will most likely will be thrown out the window and you will be embroiled in a  long and very, very expensive legal dispute that you have little if any hope of prevailing in.
I have a small boutique roaster 10 mins walk from home. He has a 5kg roaster he fires up a couple of times a week. (He is in commercial premises). If you haven't seen or smelt what comes out of the chimney- acrid and putred are apt descriptive words. He is next door to a service station and he out pongs them by a wide margin.
Commercial Coffee Roasting and residential areas DO NOT work. You are fooling yourself if you think you can wing it or you believe you will get permits for a Commercial Furnace (afterburner) in a residential area.
Just Saying...

Happiness is not a destination
It is a way of life
