Aillio Bullet V2

Aillio Bullet V2 separates roasting fact from fiction

Aillio Founders Jacob and Jonas Lillie explain why the use of infrared technology is set to take the guesswork out of roasting. Scientists have said our best ideas develop in the shower thanks to a relaxed state of mind and release of the brain chemical dopamine. But in the case of Jonas Lillie of roaster manufacturer Aillio, his best idea evolved while brushing his teeth. Jonas has been trying to find a solution to the moisture build-up and dust collection inside the protective germanium glass of the Bullet roaster he and twin brother Jacob had developed. “I had been thinking about it for a while but on this one day I had an epiphany. I thought: ‘How can you have an infrared sensor looking at the roasting beans without glass for protection?’ Without it, the sensor would be exposed to smoke and just break down over time – it needs to withstand 145°C,” Jonas says. “Then the idea popped into my head – a very, very tiny fan.”

Aillio announces update to Bullet R1 roaster

Aillio has announced the inclusion of a new infrared bean temperature sensing system (IBTS) to its Bullet R1 coffee roaster. The roasting machine manufacturer says it is well-known that the thermometric lag of traditional bean probes creates data that is inconsistent and of limited use.
