I can't really say anything bad about this roaster.

Detailed Commentary

I bought this roaster from reviews on this site.  Price was a consideration and I think for what I paid I got a good deal as Burman threw in 1 lb of green coffee to boot.  This item roasts the beans much faster (about half) of what all the articles I read said it would. Of course there are a lot of variables in this as well as in the grinding and espresso making.  

Patience and experimentation are always a necessity.  This roaster is perfect for me as one roast is just about the right amount of beans for my French Press. I'm on my second order of green coffee and I am enjoying the whole process of making as well as drinking some excellent coffee at home!

Buying Experience

A very easy pleasant experience, would buy from Burman again.

Three Month Followup

Still working fine!  Providing what I wanted it for.

One Year Followup

I purchased an IRoast several months back, but this one still works like it did when I bought it. Good for small amounts of coffee roasting.
