Great roaster!  Produces an excellent and even roast.  Nice roast time (9-10 min)  great cooling method

Negative Product Points

hard to transfer coffee out of roaster (often spill when pouring into jar); somewhat noisy

Detailed Commentary

Purchased this roaster from Burmancoffee.com, excelent service and highly recommended.  The roaster works extremely well giving me a very even and tasty  full-city roast in about 9-10 minutes.  The timer goes to 15 minutes for those that desire a deeper roast.  This roaster is a huge improvement over my previous roaster (Freshroaster) whicht gave me an uneven roast in only 3 minutes.  This extended period of roasting time has resulted in more crisp flavors and undertones coming through to the final product.  The roast is very reproducible where I am at the stage where for the same coffee, I can set the timer to the same time and come back in 20 minutes and have exactly the roast that I desire.  If anyone is serious about this hobby, the price definitely justifies the rewards.

Buying Experience

I purchased this product from Burmancoffee.com after speaking with the owner on the phone about the different roasters he had available.  He clearly understood my needs in a roaster and steered me to the perfect fit.  Even though there are more expensive roasters on the market and I was willing to spend the extra money, he convinced me that for what I want in a roaster, the Caffe Rosto was the one for me.  Once again, i had a wonderful buying experience and would suggest this vendor to anyone that is interested in homeroasting.
