[Homeroast] Gotta get me one of these

That's interesting.  I've never heard of a roller mill.  I can imagine a
series of progressively tighter spaced rollers to crush, rather than cut,
the beans to a uniform size.  I'm guessing the complexity, cost and size
make them better geared for industrial situations than for homeroast.

 From the research i have done they are often using roller mills. The
particle distribution is generally much tighter and very low on fines.
