The Christening of “Cranked,” The First Mobile Roaster

Roasting Gone Mobile! Image: Brian Hart



Yesterday was the first time roasting beans at our Rittenhouse café in years–but this time with our new old apparatus: a 1967 Citroen French panel van (originally used as an ambulance then later as a bread delivery truck) pulling a circa 1930s Vittoria roaster (found during a trip to Bologna) that we refurbished and converted to propane.

The event was a success and there will be more to come…..
