New and refurbished roasters, maintenance and service.
The family business of Bussink Machinery International (BMI) has over 25 years of experience in the coffee roaster industry. Located in the Netherlands, they have been servicing customers throughout the world. Since January of this year, they have become a distributor of the Italian coffee roaster and accessory manufacturer, IMF. “The best technology … For the best coffee!”
BMI offers “one man show roasters” from 1kg up to 15kg, used mostly in coffee bars or among enthusiasts that are just beginning to roast coffee. For the larger capacity customers, they provide roasters from 20kgs up to 360 kgs. They offer the machines new, but also refurbished or rebuilt, as well as the full line of auxiliary equipment, for roasting, transport, storing and packing, of your coffee. For the refurbished machines, they also offer custom designed afterburners, and any other extras that might be needed in order to operate at the highest efficiency. “We are all about getting our customers to produce the highest quality coffee possible, and at the same time, doing it consistently.” said Jerry Bischoff.
Jerry Bischoff in the United States, met Sander Bussink in New Jersey many years ago while both working on the technical side of coffee roasters. For the past fifteen years he has been a partner at BMI and recently they have together started BMI-North America, which services North, Central and South America. Jerry: “Sander and I both have been around the world servicing and installing roasters, and were always impressed by the Italian machines of Impianti Macchine Fondera (IMF). They are beautiful, robust, efficient, and sustainable pieces of technology. We are proud to have become the distributors for them. We now currently cover Central and Northern Europe and the Americas.”
Macchine di grande qualità: Italian IMF began in 1994 with the production of high quality coffee roasters and complete coffee roasting systems. They developed the full equipment needed to be able to roast for small scale shops and large scale factories. For coffee bars with limited space, they developed compact shop roasters that meet all necessary environmental and safety regulations. These burners have the same technology as the larger industrial burners.
Jerry: “The (semi-) automatic models make coffee roasting relatively simple, especially if you want to roast at large volumes. These machines can already be operated after basic training. For customers who like to roast more traditionally and hands-on if I may, IMF has developed some great manual models of their roasters. This allows the customer to be able to play with the roast, and develop their flavors in real time.”
All of the IMF roasters, starting at 5kg and up, have a built-in afterburner. Which helps eliminate the emissions coming from the roaster exhaust. Jerry: “IMF has an eye for durability and sustainability. They save on fuel by recirculating the heat generated by the afterburner. This also optimizes the the carbon emissions that finally leave the roaster. We know how environmentally conscious we must be these days, and we need to be able to do something about it. So in the end, we are doing our part to help the environment, as well as helping your wallet.”
