The RØST Micro-Roaster Is a Design Nerd’s Dream (and a Coffee Nerd’s, Too)

It was just named Best New Product at World of Coffee 2017.


The 2017 World of Coffee event is underway in Budapest, with brewers, roasters and coffee aficionados flocking to compete in brewing competitions and unveil new products. In the latter category, a small-batch, countertop sample roaster out of Norway is catching eyes and garnering accolades. RØST is the type of appliance that professional coffee roasters would use to dial in a roast formula, or produce small-batch runs of a particular coffee — and it just earned the designation of “Best New Product” in the Technology category at World of Coffee.

As Sprudge points out, it’s one of a handful of small-batch sample roasters to be announced in recent months. But what sets RØST apart is its design. Crafted from clean, minimal Norwegian birch wood and stainless steel, with a small window that reveals a blue gas flame, it’s just as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional.

Available for preorder now, the RØST will retail for €5,000 ($5,600) and is slated to ship later this year.
