Bottom Line: Want to know with to start off? Well this is the one to begin your home roasting adventures with!!
Positive Product Points

Simple to use. Due to it being cheap, it's a great way to encourage people to pick up home roasting.

Negative Product Points

Hard to reproduce consistency between batches. Have to manually turn the knob back and forth to get correct degree of roast.

Detailed Commentary

Been using this for over 6 months, and I find it the best thing that I have ever bought.  It has opened my mind to home roasting with it's simple user interface to operate it (Just one knob!!).  It's economical and it makes enough for one person for 5 cups of coffee, just perfect for one work week.

The only problem is the need to have to stand by it at all times to ensure that it roasts to the correct degree each and every time.  You have to make sure you have good eyesight to know when it's time to set it to the cool off setting.

I checked the box that I wouldn't buy it again.  That's because it's of high quality and durability, that I wouldn't need to buy another one.  Only if I need to make bigger batches or I want to be more savvy about it, then I may buy somehting like the iRoast.

Buying Experience

Great experience with Birds and Beans. Did a great job with tracking my shipment when Canada Post messed up on the information on where it's suppose to go, and what they had in their system.
