Probat announced on 23 October that it will be supplying two tangential roasters and two drum roasters to Italy’s top coffee roaster, Lavazza. The roasters will have a total capacity of 400 tonnes per day. Lavazza additionally ordered eight two-stage grinders from Probat, who are a global market leader in roasting plants and machinery. “Flexibility and functionality are the essential characteristics of the Jupiter tangential and Neptune drum roasters, which the customer considered in order to expand its roasting capacity,” Probat said in a statement. To ensure the careful treatment of the products` delicate aromas during the grinding process, Probat noted that Lavazza opted for two-stage grinders from the manufacturer from Emmerich. This choice of roasting and grinding components allows for all coffee varieties and blends to be roasted to any desired profile, including espresso and coffees with particularly high aroma development. The equipment also allows for the reproduceability of any grinding result.
The continuation of the successful cooperation between Lavazza and Probat sustains the positive development that German-based Probat has undergone in recent years. “Quality is a value which we constantly create with our roasters and grinders,” says Wim Abbing, Managing Director of Probat. “The confidence which Lavazza consistently puts in our products and services is something we are particularly proud of. Above all, this purchase order turns the current business year 2013 into the one with the highest order inflow in the history of the company.” For more information on Probat, visit www.probat.com
