I'm on a long-term search for some specific food-production machinery... Where should I be looking, that I'm not already.
I'm on a long-term search for a couple specific pieces of coffee-roasting machinery. I'm more than willing to wait for the right little buddy to come along, and jump on it. I'm willing to wait for a year or two, I'm willing to buy from North America or Europe...BUT I want to maximize my chances of finding one.
My question is what venues should I be checking on a regular basis? Where do I search for niche industry products like this? There are a couple
that assist with this state-side; they seem relatively sketchy, and I've known several good friends who have had poor dealings with them.
I routinely search on websites like Shop Machinery UK
, and Craigslist...with no real avail (similar items sometimes come up, so I continue checking those outlets).
Where else should I be looking?
I'm trying to make this question broad enough to be usable by others, but the machine I'm looking for is a French made, SASA Samiac coffee roaster that ranges anywhere from the 5-25 kilo capacity range.
