With the same premium quality as always, preserving the old school tradition of manufacturing in cast iron, our roasters are impressive when processing cocoa beans.

JOPER roasters manufactures cocoa roasters. Our vast know-how is not limited to manufacturing coffee roasters.

Whatever cocoa is going to be roasted, it needs to be carefully analyzed to make the perfect roast.

The processing of the cocoa beans depends on several factors and the roasting process is the most important, because if the roast is not done correctly the end result will not be as expected.

When roasting cocoa, the roasting should be slower as these beans are more delicate. The control of the drum speed, the power of the burner and the control of the hot air are very important to obtain the perfect roast.

Regardless of the method and capacity, we have the perfect solution for you.

Cocoa beans can be roasted manually or automatically in the BPR-F models with the BRIGUS Roasting Profile System.

controls all the operating functions and parameters of the BPR-F roasters; control of the on-off switch, load and discharge, burner – manually or in automated mode, flow of air through the fan, roasting time, bean and air temperature and roaster maintenance record.

Additionally, BRIGUS will allow the roast master to define the roast profile using a roasted lot or other lot previously created in the database. You can also modify parameters such as bean temperature, burner and fan during the roasting process. BRIGUS will also analyze all the information from each roast and its profile stored in the data base, lot by lot or by comparing lots.
