After burning through (not literally) a few pounds of green beans with the iRoast that AJ graciously sent me, I quickly realized that I really enjoy roasting coffee. I like the iRoast, but it has a very limited capacity and it’s really not known to be a great espresso roaster, so I started doing some digging around. After reading a bunch of reviews and forum posts on Coffee Geek and Home Barista, I settled trying to find a used HotTop to continue my little roasting adventure. One post to Coffee Geek and a few emails later and I’m soon to be the proud owner of a slightly used roaster, formerly owned by a church in Pennsylvania.
More when it arrives.
