Drum Roaster


Drum Roaster

A roaster with a rotating drum that provides agitation to the beans, while a heating element (typically either electric or gas) provides heat. The metal drum conducts heat to the beans, so drum roasters heat beans both by convection and conduction.

Drum roasters typically roast more slowly than air roasters, and impart a more rounded, less bright flavor profile.
