Understanding
coffee
You have to love coffee to roast it prop­
erly; and you have to live and breathe
coffee to really enjoy it. We are inspired
by roasted coffee. Its fascination lies in
its variety and its challenge in maintaining its consistency. And that’s exactly
how it should be. Roasting coffee is
much more than just a profession. You
can analyse and explain coffee; you
can blend it or glaze it with sugar; you
can change it, refine it and tease the
very best from it: its whole flavour.
But before you can do any of that, you
need to understand it. Coffee wants to
be touched, tasted, smelt and enjoyed
with all the senses. You know that. And
so do we.
Christian Felix Weiße, 1792

Patent No. 100
By the final third of the 19th century, coffee was already a 1,000-year-old drink. And throughout all that
time, coffee beans needed to be roasted before they could be used to brew coffee. Initially this was done in
open pans and then, from the beginning of the 18th century and for many decades after, in hand-operated
cylindrical roasters over an open flame or a brazier. Back then, large batches, high roast quality and, above
all, reproducible results were extremely difficult to achieve.
Alex van Gülpen
Johann Heinrich Lensing
Theodor von Gimborn
In 1868, the entrepreneurs Alex van Gülpen and Johann Heinrich Lensing joined up with the engineer Theodor
von Gimborn to establish the Emmericher Maschinenfabrik und Eisengießerei. As a coffee dealer and market
specialist, van Gülpen recognised the large potential of the roasted coffee market and, at the same time,
that manual coffee roasting was arduous and ineffective, especially for anyone hoping to run an industri­
alised coffee roasting operation.
A short while later, the first ball roaster – the progenitor of all modern Probat roasters – left the newly
operational industrial manufacturing site in Emmerich am Rhein. German Imperial Patent No. 100 from 1877
was followed in 1884 by a patent for the first rapid drum roaster. By 1900, the company had already sold
50,000 roasters.

Rich in experience ...
Like roasting, building roasting machines also demands great experience.
It is this experience that puts us in a position to be able to learn from ourselves and to use this learning to help us grow.
Over 140 years of experience in roaster
manufacture and in roasting shape our
daily activities. This experience is the
engine capacity that enables us to deliver
maximum performance. Our roasting
technology has experienced and survived
much. It has been both witness and
key player in the constant growth of our
sector. 140 years of shop roaster construction and – let’s not forget – 140 years
of industrial roaster construction form
the basis of what sets our products apart:
quality.

A brand acquires prominence through quality, performance
and prevalence. It acquires fame due to its unique appeal.
And then, when copies reach the market, it becomes a
cult object. Because a product that is so special, that has
such originality, cannot simply be copied. When you buy
a Probat, you are not just buying a roaster. You are buying
something that cannot be described in mere words alone.
You have to experience it.

After more than 140 years in the coffee
roaster business, we have experienced
much and solved many problems. And
it is through constant and continuous
development that we remain credible
and convincing. For instance, by op­
timising our production processes we
have succeeded in meeting the demand
for ever-faster responses and shorter
delivery times. From ordering to de­
liv­
ery of a hand-finished Probat shop
roaster: the whole process takes just a
few weeks – and we achieve this without
skimping on our proven first-class qual­
ity. We want to add a personal face to our
market and as a global company we are
in a good position to do so. Thus we are
continuously developing our sales and
service networks so we can support you
even better. It is the best way of ensuring
that we are always at your service.
... of their Probat and are proud of their
roaster, that gives us a good feeling. The
spark of our enthusiasm has ignited
their passion too.
Probat firmly believes in taking good
care of this passionate circle of shop
roasting customers. And with that in
mind, we put together a team specially
to deal with the shop roasting segment.
This team and its customers have two
things in common: a love of coffee and
a distinct appreciation of the quality
workmanship of speciality roasters.
The reliability that Probat roasters are
so well known for is something our cus­
tomer service also hopes to provide.
That is why Probat supports its custom­
ers in many different countries at every
step – from first contact to operational
start-up. The motivated and competent
Probat shop roasting team is ready to
help its customers in person and via tele­phone support.

The segment is developing rapidly. It is racing into the future and apparently has a clear idea of what this
should look like. The new generation of roasters offers plenty of scope for creativity and demands large
potential for growth. It is not easy for everyone to keep up. No problem for us.
Do you have any questions or comments or simply fancy a chat? Regardless of whether you are a long-term
customer or just looking for orientation: Drop us a line. Visit us. Give us a call. Whatever you do, we’re full of
beans and ready to help. Your Probat shop roaster team.

Five roaster types in a great variety of models, roaster-specific cyclones and
exhaust air systems – sophisticated technology, highly developed and tried and
tested a thousand times over. Our shop roasters are no mere spin-off of our
industrial portfolio. They are the origin. This diversity of construction requires a
huge research and development department and a high-performance manufacturing plant. Every machine has run through countless precisely defined process
steps. Cutting, stamping, welding and grinding on the one hand; assembly, testing
and polishing on the other. Our manufacturing puts one thing before all others:

IT IS ALWAYS A GOOD FEELING,

OUR PASSION IS THE BASIS FOR OUR UNIQUE QUALITY PHILOSOPHY.
AFTER TEN YEARS, PROBAT CUSTOMERS DO NOT WANT TO REPLACE

OF OUR MACHINES IS UNMATCHED.

No compromise.
What was important once is still im­
portant today. That is why we continue
to use cast iron in the construction
of Probatone roasters – where it makes
technical sense. Not in the roasting
drum, by the way. With good cause
we do not use, and never have used, cast
iron nor stainless steel for this.
On the one hand solidity, on the other
lightness: cutting-edge production
techniques such as folded sheet metal
construction provide high stability
at a relatively low weight. What is most
important in a good coffee roaster?
Materials, workmanship and quality?
Functionality and flexibility? Value re­
tention? Reliability? Visual appearance?
There’s no need to make compromises!
Outstanding roast quality and a con­
trolled, efficient and gentle roast are the
most important prerequisites for
a successful and enjoyable roasting ex­
perience. With the Probatone series and
the Probatino, Probat has the perfect
solution for every roast master. Along
with their predecessors, the L series,
they have been the top-selling shop
roasters worldwide for decades.

defined air-to-bean ratio that is reached
when the drum is about a third full. The
roasting has a clearly defined start and
finish. As a roast master, you hold all the
strings and enjoy maximum flexibility.
The essential special characteristics of
the Probat roasters make it possible.
A special shovel mechanism, individu­
ally tailored for each different machine
size, ensures the best possible mixing of
the beans at a predefined rotating speed.
In the process, every single bean moves
along a clearly defined trajectory and is
guided by a controlled hot air stream.
This principle presupposes a clearly

Our research department also regularly draws intensively on the experience
and requirements of other roast masters. The result is a series of roasting
machines that feature cutting edge of technology with all the practical and
well-engineered functions that allow the roast master to develop his or her
own creations.
Much more than

of experience has
flowed into the
development and

OUR ROASTERS
WHAT WE HAVE REFINED ARE THE FEATURES
THAT PROVIDE YOU WITH EXTRA CONVENIENCE, THAT SIMPLIFY YOUR DAILY ROASTING
ENORMOUSLY AND OFFER EVER MORE POSSIBILITIES TO EXPLORE YOUR CREATIVITY:
The unperforated, double-walled roasting drum
is indispensable for optimum temperature control
as, in combination with the energy-efficient exter­
nal isolation, it minimises heat dissipation to the
surrounding environment. The cast iron front and
cast iron outlet flap are particularly resistant to
deformation and ensure consistent roasting condi­
tions within the drum. The quality workmanship in
our factory and the exclusive use of premium com­
ponents from big-name suppliers ensure maximum
machine availability, reliable roasting operation and
a long-term availability of wearing parts.
Features and functions
• Simultaneous roasting and cooling
• Special shovel mechanism for optimum mixing
• Infinitely adjustable heating ensures stable roasting profiles
• S traightforward operation with digital time and temperature display
• S eparate cyclone with particularly high degree of separation
• E asy emptying of the bin for chaff
• Single motor concept with direct drives
• Removable side walls for simplified servicing
• Hand crank for emptying the roaster in cases of power outages
These key specific features have not changed in dec­
ades, by the way. Rather, they are a logical conse­
quence of our unique sense of quality. Probat roasters
are well thought through and have proven their reli­
ability many a time.
46
47
The PROBATINO
•Modified design with sight glass and control panel facing
the operator (as Probatone)
•S traightforward operation with digital time and temperature display
•E xcellent bean pattern thanks to the special
shovel mechanism that mixes the coffee evenly
•C onsistent, homogenous roast using Probat-specific air-to-bean ratio
•Simultaneous roasting and cooling
•Maximum flexibility thanks to infinitely adjustable gas regulation
•Reliable heating provided by proven burner technology
•S eparate roasting cyclone for effective chaff separation
•E asy setting of the drum gap

The machine for PRODUCTION
AND TESTING almost seems cute
when compared with its bigger brothers
and sisters, but it is, nevertheless,
a proper Probat with an outstanding
roast quality. A tabletop device not just
for newcomers. And the table should
be pretty sturdy, because the Probatino
weighs a solid 260 pounds. That’s a lot
of weight for 1-kilo batches.

The ideal machine for AMBITIOUS
RO A ST MA STERS. Small
enough to be flexible, big enough to
really cut the mustard. The Probatone
12 processes up to 400 kg of green
coffee into 340 kg roast coffee in
8 hours and can thus produce nearly
its own body weight every day.
Probatone12
Flexibility and professionalism
Production of smaller or larger quantities with no unnecessary pressure. Regardless of whether it’s
a standard house blend or an exclusive rarity: with the P12, both are equally economically viable.
All the possibilities.

Silo system
Feeding system
The silo system consisting of three containers
has a capacity of 280 kg of green coffee and
140 kg of roasted coffee per container. The
stock levels can be visually inspected via the
built-in sight glasses.
The feeding system is the interface between
the roasting machine and the scales/feed
hopper.
The green coffee is conveniently conveyed
into the Probatone’s modified feeding
hopper via the pipes.
A flexible discharge hose enables measured
quantities of the stored coffee to be
drawn off. Coffee beans can be returned
to the containers using a manual device.
The silo system is equipped for pneumatic
filling via industrial vacuum cleaners.
Feeding container
The hopper makes light work of feeding
green and roasted coffee. It has a green
coffee capacity of 60 kg, reducing manual
handling of coffee sacks.
Pneumatic
feeding
The industrial vacuum cleaner is used for
conveying green and roasted coffee. The
cleaner is connected to the silo system or
feeding system via a flexible hose. With
a conveying speed of up to 20 kg of green
coffee per minute it is suited to all roasters
of the Probatone series.
82
The feeding hopper can also be used for
roasted coffee. The capacity of around 30
kg is adequate for supplying at least one
complete batch for the Probatone 5 to 25
roasters.
Scales
With a capacity of around 60 kg of green
coffee these mobile scales are suited to a
variety of uses. Whether as blending scales
for making up green coffee blends or as
monitoring scales for measuring roasted
coffee quantities: the weight is easy to read
on the scales’ clear display. The mobile
design enables the scales to be easily moved
around in the roasting plant.

Store fittings
Grinders and display bins
We recommend our display bins to show off your coffee at its best. These are available in various
sizes and colours. High-quality shop grinders by Mahlkönig complete our product range, ensuring
you can obtain everything from a single source.

A lot of organisations offer courses. The training market is becoming ever
more complex. So it’s good to know that Probat does not restrict its extensive roasting experience to building roasters, but is also prepared to pass
it on to you in high-quality training courses.
For the latest training dates go to
www.probat-shoproaster.com
or www.facebook.com/probatone
87
Our intensive courses are designed for a
maximum of eight students per session.
Each participant has the chance to roast,
test, taste and philosophise.
Our courses involve the use of a wide range
of Probat equipment so that our students
can learn in real-life conditions. A number of
different roasters are permanently available
at our training centre and are used for the
training courses as need be.
