    Old School Roaster

    I was first reluctant to purchase a manual roaster for the price listed but after using for about a month, I have been enjoying the experience of roasting my own coffee beans. This roaster is quite limited on the amount of coffee beans you can roast in the hopper. So if you are brewing coffee for a family or for regular daily use you may want to invest in a larger roasting machine. But this roaster fits me perfectly because I only drink fresh coffee during weekends when I have the time to roast my own coffee beans. Maintaining the roaster can be a chore since you have to disassemble the roaster to reach the hard to clean places to make it look nice. The roaster itself looks well built and their individual parts are well designed so its made to last a long time. The fragile part I handle with care is the glass cylinder that holds the beans inside. I am afraid I might drop it or crack it so I carefully wipe it when cleaning. The roaster is aesthetically pleasing look to it and looks nice on a kitchen shelf. So overall if you enjoy the taste of fresh coffee beans and don't mind the slow process of roasting your own, this is for you.
