The Bottom Line
This is a drum roaster with a twist. Instead of being heated by its own internal element, the Kaldi Drum Roaster is heated by a burner for better electric efficiency. However, its design makes it hard to monitor progress.

Kaldi Drum Roaster Overview

This is a drum roaster with a twist. Instead of being heated by its own internal elements, the Kaldi is instead placed over a burner.

This gives it a considerably lower electric consumption rate than other drum roasters. It’s also an absolutely gorgeous machine that will look great on any countertop.

It does come with a few downsides. The drum is well and truly hidden, so you’ll need to insert a scoop to visually assess the beans as they roast. The need to have both a power supply and a burner can be problematic in some kitchen setups, and the hot machine has to be left on the stove after roasting to cool-down.

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
