Welcome To The Coffee Equipment Pros Press Room

At Coffee Equipment Pros, we believe roasters need to roast.

Sounds simple enough. But if you’re running a roastery, you know a million things can come between you and those beans. Your roastery equipment shouldn’t be one of them. Yet, we know how much time a roastery can burn in selecting and managing its machines. 

We get it. You’ve got a lot of dots to connect. With our elite equipment emporium, we help you make that critical connection.

With us, you’ll find a consultative partner, not just a salesperson, and certainly not an “order-taker”. Our relationship with many roasteries means we’ve got the pulse on what works — and it’s not just about fitting people into equipment. Instead, we match the best equipment to our people.

We’re passionate about equipping you with our carefully vetted options — new and used — to create the ultimate roasting machine line-up.

Why? Because we love all things coffee, especially our vibrant coffee-roasting community. People like you put a smile on the world’s faces every morning with that first delightful sip.☺

Because Roasters Need To Roast™. That’s what you do best.
And we're here doing our best to make sure that happens.

The Rick Davis and Kimberly Navarro Team at Coffee Equipment Pros was a true five-star experience. My initial contact with both was met with the utmost professionalism and a feeling of trust. Rick's experience in the coffee roasting equipment business resonates as extensive with knowledge of a wide variety of commercial equipment. Upon agreement to list with Rick, I was immediately contacted by Kimberly to acquire all information needed to execute a sale. They are a very positive and hard-working team and, most importantly, fair and trustworthy in their commitment to the seller as well as the buyer. I could not have found a better broker for my sale. Thank You.

I work for Portland Coffee Roasters in Portland, OR. We needed some parts for one of our roasters and reached out to Coffee Equipment Pros for help. They were very professional and helpful. We had a great experience dealing with Coffee Equipment Pros, especially Kimberly Navarro. She was very helpful and made sure that everything went smoothly with our order. She kept updating us on the progress of our order and followed up after the package was delivered to make sure everything was okay with the shipment. We really enjoyed working with them and will definitely use them for our future parts/equipment needs. Professional and great customer service!

We were pleased to receive the freight job from Coffee Equipment Pros. We picked up a coffee grinder to be crated and shipped. Our communication with Kimberly at Coffee Equipment Pro was great, and payment for the service was very quick.
