Our Price: $9,300.00



The Huntley Monitor was one of the first to use actual gas (instead of coal) to the roasting process - as they were located in Brocton New York just south of Buffalo where the Jabez Burns folks were already in full swing.and all this is circa 1900. As their manufacturing increased - they were so popular that they had to move to a mush larger facility i Silver Creek, NY just 27 miles up the road toward Buffalo.

Cast Iron was the norm and the Huntly machine was a little more artisan than the Burns group - with 3 different flame settings and the Huntley group started aggressive advertising in the first issue of Tea and Coffee Trade Journal, back in 1901. Actually the Huntly group first made grading and cleaning machines for coffee but soon fell in love with the total process. They also made smaller roasters than Jabez Burns which also got them lots of more regional customers then through "big" Burns units.

What we have here (and not all pictured) is t bucket elevator to load the roaster - the inlet hopper, cooling cart on wheels and it would look totally like it is in operation. Technically, one could roast on it . . . but we are talking old, here . . . and it may be best preserved as a display item. This is a great piece and a beautiful testimony of the way it was.
