David Buffington (quality: 2.0) 10.04.2000 Rating: 3.2
Bottom Line: A waste of money and time. It might be best to buy the cheaper Hearthware roaster without the 'brain.'
Java Man (Espressopithecus) (quality: 9.0) 12.14.2004 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: As close to "set and forget" as they come, but durability problems, small capacity, and excess brightness for non-espresso brewing mar this product.
Ed (quality: 5.0) 06.12.2001 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: Assuming reliability issues don`t bite you,  expect better coffee at less cost with this unit.
PT Sandiford (quality: 2.0) 11.01.2000 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: Good value, needs safety switch!
James Schulman (quality: 6.5) 10.25.2001 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: Great coffee, but lousy construction.  Please, someone build a good roaster!
Steve Johnson (quality: 2.0) 10.27.2000 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Great product  for home use -- but send in the warranty registration
Frank Dobson (quality: 5.0) 01.16.2000 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: I have never had such a good cup of coffee in the morning before! A bit pricey, but worth it for the flavor improvement!
Kevin Morgan (quality: 8.8) 01.16.2002 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Good way to get introduced to home roasting.
Dave Clark (quality: 3.0) 01.17.2000 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: A great roaster for beginner to expert if you don't mind 1/4 cup batches. Evenly roasted batches except on larger beans.
John (quality: 4.5) 11.30.2000 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: If you love coffee and roast  your own - buy one.
Butch Burton (quality: 3.0) 05.09.2000 Rating: 8.0

Bottom Line: The Standard in Air Roasting
Ben Alpers (quality: 8.4) 01.15.2002 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Unfortunately, this is the home roaster I'd recommend getting.  It does a great job, but has serious quality problems.
Richard Floch (quality: 9.0) 01.13.2002 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Fine machine for limited demand uses and if you like acidy light roasts and pungent dark roasts.
Marc Berrenson (quality: 7.5) 04.02.2000 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Easy to use and clean. Reliable if watched. Would like to see it for less money.
Robert Colin Newell (quality: 3.1) 03.04.2002 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Good in a pinch. In the final analysis, get your beans from the big machines!
Scott Jensen (quality: 5.8) 07.04.2002 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: An excellent home roaster!
Ken Wilson (quality: 9.0) 01.16.2000 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: My desert island luxuries would be one of these and a press pot to prepare the coffee in.
Mike Buettner (quality: 6.0) 04.11.2001 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: For the price, the freshness, and the fun, it is hard to go wrong with the HWP.
Jaime Athos (quality: 6.0) 02.04.2000 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: An inexpensive and easy way to get into home roasting. Buy one -- fresh roasted is better!

Bottom Line: Small scale home roasting doesn't get any easier than this.
Bruce Harlick (quality: 8.5) 07.03.2002 Rating: 9.0
