In Baltimore, Zeke's Coffee is Roasting to Order with 'Mad-Scientisty' Fluid-Bed Setup
“I’m a big Sivetz fan,” Rhodes told Daily Coffee News, referring to fluid-bed commercial roasting machines made by Michael Sivetz. Zeke’s in Baltimore roasts for its cafe primarily on an 8-pound-capacity Sivetz machine. Rhodes’ nephew, the proprietor of Zeke’s in Pittsburgh, roasts on a 12-pound Sivetz. His other nephew, at the helm of Zeke’s in D.C. recently switched from Sivetz to a Loring due to neighborly displeasure with the roastery’s emissions.
