The Hottop Roaster is a high-quality, stable and well-thought-out roaster for the home. It is a drum roaster; i.e. the beans are constantly moved in the drum so that they roast evenly. You can control the temperature inside the drum, and control the air supply, thus influencing the roasting curve. Due to the bean throw-in at the top of the roaster, you can preheat the machine very precisely to the starting temperature and thus obtain a very accurate and consistent roasting curve. In addition, the Hottop Roaster has a built-in cooling device, like the large commercial roasting machines. Cooling is essential to complete the roasting process at the time you want and at exactly the degree of roasting you want. Through the window you can judge the beans very well with the eye, and both the first and the second crackle are easy to hear.
