Caffe Rosto First Look
Product Supplier

1st Line Equipment, LLC

Product Pricing

1st-Line sells the Caffe Rosto for $139 as of this writing, or $149 with 4 lbs of green coffee.

I'm blessed by the fact that I've been able to test almost every major consumer roaster to have come out in the last four years, and the Caffe Rosto CR-120 roaster is the most recent machine I've had a chance to check out.

The roaster has been on the market for a while now, but is recently getting a bigger push since the demise of its main competitor roaster: the Hearthware Precision.

The Caffe Rosto promises to roast a higher volume of beans than the now defunct Hearthware models, and features a low-cyclonic air roasting method. I've been hearing a lot of things about this roaster, now it's my chance to really put it to the test.

As always, I'd like to remind you this is a First Look, not a Detailed Review. This document is based on a scant week's worth of testing. At CoffeeGeek, we feel a product must get several months of testing before we post a definitive review of a product, but we also feel its important to give you this first look, so you get a sense of what the product is about.

Enjoy the rest of the First Look!
