Negative Product Points
long cooling cycle
I've had this a while now. I absolutely love this roaster. It is incredibly easy to use and yields fantastic roasts. It seems well manufactured no problems as of yet except a small chaff fire due to me forgetting to clean the chaff from a previous roast and roasting a high chaff coffee to near vienna. The only drawback I have seen is the long and fairly innefective cooling cycle. The bright notes of coffees such as kenyans seem to me to be a bit muted by this. So I break out my trusty popcorn pumper when I'm in the mood for that unique puckering acidity. It develops the flavors of yemeni coffees excelently though.
