Name my Roaster Competition

Some of you may remember who have read here for a while that I got a new roaster back in November last year. Others of you who have been here even longer may remember a post I did naming my 25kg probat a couple of years ago.

So to date we have always named our roasters the first being bettsy our 2kg Ambex

Ambex YM 2kg

then we had Amy my 5kg Ambex

Ambex YM 5kg

Then we had our 15kg Ambex Bertha

Ambex YM 15kg

Then we have Gunther our 25kg Probat

Probat 25kg

And the new addition with no name is our 12kg Probat

Probat 12kg

So I need your help to name the roaster, comments here, email or carrier pigeon for your entries. Going to keep it going for three weeks until we get a winner, and the winner will win a 3 month subscription pack for the in my mug videos, so a bag of coffee every week for 12 weeks if your in the EU and we will work out something nice if your further afield between us.

You can enter as many times as you like which will give you more chance the more you enter. The name must make me smile every time I use it. My decision will be the final one.

Want to get a better look at it? Then watch this video right beside it.

  10. I agree with the posters above who say this is definately a boy roaster.
    My ‘magic’ name is Dougal, from the magic roundabout. Something about the cheeky grin, and shaggy sides. Here’s a link for anyone not quite getting it (assuming links work…):

  15. BERT – meaning of name is ” Bright and Shining ” or

    Engelbert

  16. So, youโ€™re not sure what sex the roaster is; the name that comes to mind therefore is Michael. Rather a nice twist this Michael will make pale beans become dark. And obviously it would churn out as many successes as itโ€™s namesake :0)

  21. Lorraine Wilson 17 August, 2009 at 12:04 pm

    Big Ben ,cause its always coffee time with me

  22. Definitely Silvio…

  23. Dandy – Because its the rival to Beano

  24. db10thetruth

  25. Man – you can’t name it anything else but the obvious . . . .

    BIG BOY!!!

    You KNOW it’s right!

  26. is there a winner yet?

    How about Gnasher the dog of Dennis the Menace from the BEANo

  27. Crankenstein

    Brewmeister

    Beansy

  28. Hi Steve

    We e-mailed you with ours ages ago but I’m worried that if they are not on here, they might get forgotten.

    Cath’s suggestion: Seigfried
    My suggestion: Darth Roaster

    Now come on and name the damn thing! The dark side is calling…..

    Damon

  29. toasty maloney

  34. Diane Halliwell 17 August, 2009 at 10:56 pm

    I’d go for Desdemona.

  35. No winner here yet? Without a name bubba probat will develop identity issues and attachment disorders. Beans and chaff will be spat.

    Last attempt, in a ditch effort – _BERNIE TUMBLR_.

    Seriously, if that doesn’t win – i’m gonna get out my penguin book of baby names and start brute forcing this bad boy.

    On a coffee note you could name it “Galla” or “Oromo” after the Ethiopian tribe first believed to have discovered coffee or then theres “Sufi” or “Genus” or “Menelik”

    Oh and whilst searching the internet came across this link – perhaps the first “in my mug” ever – This is coffee 1961.
    Steve if you have not seen it I hope it brings a smile to your face

    I will agree with Valentino. Oliver is a happy and funny name since it does remind of oliver from the old black and white comedy. (Oliver & Stanley).

  38. Elvis, that roaster is definitely Elvis, all the way.

  39. Harry
    Indianna
    Donnie (Darko)

    Nicola
    Zoe

  40. Names and the reasons for choosing them

    Bunna – The Amharic and Afan Oromo name for coffee

    Leonhard – In 1583, Leonhard Rauwolf, a German physician, gave this description of coffee after returning from a ten-year trip to the Near East
    โ€œ A beverage as black as ink, useful against numerous illnesses, particularly those of the stomach. Its consumers take it in the morning, quite frankly, in a porcelain cup that is passed around and from which each one drinks a cupful. It is composed of water and the fruit from a bush called bunnu. โ€

    Ernest – 1933, Dr. Ernest Illy invented the first automatic espresso machine.

    James or Mason – James Mason invented the coffee percolator on December 26, 1865.

    Joropo – the national dance of Venezuela

    But as it is a girlie roasting machine then it has to be:-

    Melitta – Melitta Bentz was a housewife from Dresden, Germany, who invented the first coffee filter

    Oh and two names from my youngest two children aged 5 and 3 are

    Charlie or Lola from CBeebies

  41. The only name suitable for this roaster is

    BOMBER

  42. It’s a bloke as girls can’t roast so (look at me) so Bruce or Boris

  43. Squelcher

    Bexie

    Eeffie

  44. nietzche

  45. Steed

    Cleetus

    Gazza

    Jock

  46. FIZZY – You know why

  47. Gertrude, Ivor, Gladis, Dilligaf, lancet, Gertha, Chester, dave

    cheers

  48. If the big one is Gunther this one’s got to be Gernot (and if the next one is a 5 kilo Probat, it ought to be Giselher)… ๐Ÿ˜‰
