Hakko FA-430 Fume Extractor - A Total Game Changer for Indoor Coffee Roasting Ventilation (using the Kaffelogic)!

Post by iamericfletcher »

As an indoor coffee roaster living in a densely populated neighborhood, I was constantly worried about air quality and disturbing my upstairs neighbors with the fumes and smoke. My makeshift venting setup using Home Depot duct wasn't cutting it. The makeshift approach did a great job sending the fumes and smoke outside, but then the wind takes it and I worried greatly that it would then enter my neighbors apartments, especially on nice days when their windows are open! Coupled with that, my air purifiers air quality indicator would always go down to 0% with the makeshift venting approach, so I obviously needed to find an alternative solution... specifically a prebuilt solution as I don't have the time to build my own.

Enter the Hakko FA-430 Fume Extractor! This machine is a total game changer for me. With an open window and my air purifier running, it captured smoke and fumes terrifically, leaving no smoke smell and only a slight roasty aroma. My air quality indicator on the air purifier remained at 100% throughout three back-to-back roasts only dipping to 98% a couple times and very temporarily.

I'm thrilled to have found this almost worry-free solution for indoor roasting with the Kaffelogic roaster . The Hakko FA-430 is well-made, and I highly recommend it to anyone in a similar situation as me and who can invest in this equipment. The ease of replacement parts and the reassurance it provides make it a terrific money spend... really looking forward to roasting more often and with less worry, especially in the winter months when I'll be able to avoid faulting the roaster due to the ambient temperature in the room being too low!
