A new breed of home roasters that lets you set the roasting profiles (parameters) that allow precise control of how the roaster takes care of your green coffee.
Adam Reisner (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: if you buy one plan on summer roasting or indoor roasting and hunkerdown if you ever need hearthware support.
Alan Hurvitz (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: Plain and simple... if you adhere to a bit of discipline, here's what you get after a bit of trial and error. Consistently GREAT coffee roasted exactly the way you like it. And let's face it, isn't that what this is all about?
Bob J (quality: 8.3)
Bottom Line: A terrific consumer roaster with programmable roasting profiles.
Carl Picciotto (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: Well built, with an integrated thermometer, but loud, and with a temperature controller that could be much smarter at compensating for changing ambient conditions.
Chris Ward (quality: 5.5)
Bottom Line: A coffeegeek's dream: Use the basic settings and get better and fresher roasts than you're used to, or fiddle endlessly in persuit of perfection.
Christopher Keene (quality: 8.7)
Bottom Line: The ne plus ultra of home hot air roasters. The most advanced stage in the evolution from popcorn popper to coffee roaster.
Craig Shields (quality: 6.6)
Bottom Line: A roaster that roasts! Color me amazed!
David Echelbarger (quality: 7.4)
Bottom Line: If you learn to use this roaster as a tool, and not as a set and forget machine, it will meet your needs.
Bottom Line: Junk good for a yard game who can toss the junk roaster the farthest.
Don Ferron (quality: 5.0)
Bottom Line: Excellent value in a home roaster.
Jeff Mauerman (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Sadly, a poor investment.
Jeff Smith (quality: 5.5)
Bottom Line: better you should grab a hammer and strike your thumb with it.
Jim Hill (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: A very good coffee roaster that can take a while to master.
Leland Goertz (quality: 8.5)
Bottom Line: A well built, quality roaster, capable of producing an exceptional roast.
Len Charleville (quality: 7.3)
Bottom Line: Well built, easy to use, and produces a quality roast.
Liz Howe (quality: 1.0)
Bottom Line: Buyer beware!
Michael DeCorte (quality: 3.7)
Bottom Line: Nice roast, but it is somewhat fragile and you will need luck and patience to get it fixed.
Mike Ferro (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: A very good machine for people who prefer light roasts and who don't use a lot of coffee.
Patrick T (quality: 0.6)
Bottom Line: Don't deal with Hearthware. Even the i-Roast II has poorly put together parts and others are not happy with it.
Bottom Line: This machine can do an accurate roast profile; I hope it holds up for a long time.
