And the winner is ……

So its been too long deciding on the name for the new probat. We cant call it …. well “it”.

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed. We had over 200 entries including emails with some people giving many many options. Special thanks to Den who went out with around 200 suggestions himself.

Some of my favourites were Fizzy, Cleetus, Melita, the hitcher, Pankraz, Volker, Perct Probat, Roscoe and Gruber.

But when it came down to it, it was the name that made me smile and meant something to the German roots so it doesn’t feel left our from its brother Gunther (our 25kg)

So the winner of the naming competition is Heinz from Andrew Hindley who said

“My name for the roaster is Heinz “Because beans means Heinz””

Thank you to everyone who entered, and thank you for all the creativity, sorry if you didn’t win but there will be more of these I think.
