The HotTop Roaster is for those who want larger batches than the air roasters, longer roasts, a commercial type roast-and-cool cycle, and a more robust machine.
Roasting with the Hot Top takes an extra effort. But this method, roasting with your senses, is rewarded in a machine that gives a close-up view of the coffee during the roast cycle. Requires green coffee beans. Home roasting coffee is highly recommended by WeGotCoffee.com
