I will say, it only happened once, briefly, to me.

Used Mill City TJ-067 - worth it?
jochild
Hi All,

I am looking to upgrade my behmor to something that gives me more control and has a little bit larger capacity. There's a used MCR TJ-067 for sale in my area. I reached out to the seller and it was manufactured in June of 2016. According to some of the forums and after a conversation with Steve at MCR, it sounds like they've made a number of upgrades since 2016, the largest being the UL certification on all the machine components. I'm not super concerned with the ratings for everything, and would just like a really nice home setup. The machine is listed at $5,800, which would be an ok deal for their current machine, which sells for $7,300, but I'm fairly sure that in 2016 their machines were significantly cheaper, on the order of $5,000 or so. Does anyone have any experience with MCR or this machine, what are your thoughts on buying a 2016 model? Should I try and get a better deal on it?

Thanks for your help!

It seems like much more than a home setup to me.

Oh yes...I understand that this is much more than a home machine. I'm looking for something professional grade, but not planning on selling beans. I'm looking more for information on whether this would be a good deal or not. Thanks!

I think the price is too steep.

Check Cormorant roaster from UK.
Looks professional done enough for me, and price also is appealing for 600 grams, a capacity more appropriate for home consumption.

What do you think a fair price would be for a used 2016 TJ-067?

Is it the one in Wiggins?

I recall reading about the changes they've made. Double wall drum, different burners, and a few other things.

There has been a number of innovations in roasters in the past 2-3 years.

Sort of like going from open cockpits and seat of the pants roasting to pressurized cabin and gps nav.

Haha! That's the one! I understand that things may have changed in the past 4 years or so, but I don't know that a cutting edge machine is exactly what I need. I'm looking more for a starter machine to learn on. I mean, the only other reasonably priced options are the ones sold by Buckeye Coffee out of Arizona, but I don't know if those meet all the "modern" specs of other new machines.

So what would be a reasonable price for this "outdated" machine?

No, I didn't end up buying it. I asked the seller if they were negotiable on price and it really seemed to offend them. It looks like they did find a buyer for full value though. Good for them!

I'm looking into getting an Aillio Bullet instead, just have to wait for them to come back in stock.
