Nigel Walsh, Stonka Roasters

Creating the Stonka Roaster was a natural progression from the development of afterburners that we had made for several coffee roasteries here in Christchurch.

Having outgrown his 5 kg roaster, Pete Davies from Underground Coffee commissioned us to make the first Stonka Roaster which has now been in use in his Colombo Street roasterie for 3½ years. Following this we have been developing coffee roasters with capacity of up to 70 kg.

With several years of performing routine servicing and maintenance of the majority of coffee roasteries here in Christchurch, we feel we have a good understanding of the industry and look forward to the development of many more Stonka Roasters not only here in New Zealand but offshore as well.
