Coffee Roasters at the 2016 Roasters Guild Retreat

Inproheat Industries prides itself on forming strong relationships with coffee roasters. Our first Smoke Dog afterburner, created for Bean Around the World, introduced Inproheat to the coffee roasting industry. Since then, we have been giving back through products and industry participation.

Inproheat has been celebrating 25 years of building afterburners by attending some of the industry’s most celebrated events. With that in mind, we were delighted to attend the 2016 Roasters Guild Retreat at the Lake Lawn Resort in beautiful Delavan, Wisconsin.

The Roasters Guild Retreat has been an annual event for over 15 years. It brings out American coffee roasters, Canadian coffee roasters, and international coffee roasters. As a result, new industry connections are made while solutions are explored for handling current industry challenges. Based on that, the retreat offers a combination of educational and social events, providing a balance of learning and fun.

Giving Back to Coffee Roasters

Inproheat sponsored a social keg events at the Roasters Guild Retreat, which gave us a great opportunity to give back to the coffee roasting industry. Since the release of our Smoke Dog afterburner over 25 years ago, Inproheat has emphasized the importance of building strong partnerships with coffee roasters around the world. As a result, our partnerships have continued to grow.

Our attendance at the retreat offered some great industry insights, including a peek at the latest equipment on display. Most of all, it connected us with roasters and thought leaders within the Specialty Coffee Association of America.

Building Industry Solutions for Coffee Roasters

Coffee roasters face increasing pressure in their roasting operations, especially to reduce visible plume and odour. Due to new restrictions on CO and NOx levels, there is a greater demand for products that can meet these requirements. With that in mind, the Smoke Dog afterburner complies with California’s stringent emission regulations. As a result, it offers peace of mind to roasters and consumers alike.
