Roasting Machines and Capacity

Here's a leaky abstraction.

What's full operating capacity for a coffee roasting machine, your might ask? An easy number to remember is 500. 500kgs or half a metric ton of output per month, per kg of the roasting machine's capacity. Did you just buy a X-kg capacity roaster? Make sure you're roasting 0.5X-tons of green coffee per month. The math is fairly simple. Go figure.

(On the same estimation model, if you ran the machine non-stop the factor should be just over 2200, so ~25% (500) is a pretty low assumption - but heck.)

A bright and balanced day. Silky body, great aftertaste... now to mop up digital errands. I'm talking about my schedule, not the coffee.
