Product Reviewed: FreshRoast 8+
Bottom Line: Inexpensive entry into coffee roasting made a bit more expensive by variac and thermocouple that are very helpful. Small batch size can be a plus.

Brian Withnell (quality: 5.0) 02.21.2004 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Produced good coffee -- the new design appears to have fixed the fire hazzard.
Carlos Alvarez (quality: 4.4) 10.13.2005 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Inconsistent, small capacity.  Only buy it if you just really can't afford a better machine.
Charles Gardner (quality: 7.0) 06.25.2002 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Drop the air popper or the pre-roast.  Get a FR+ and find the next level.

Dee Ann Abel (quality: 5.0) 11.03.2000 Rating: 8.0

Bottom Line: I'm happy because the machine got me into roasting, but won't buy another.
Donald Blum (quality: 6.9) 04.10.2002 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: The FreshRoast+ is small, but efficient and seems to be heavy-duty enough to stand up to multiple roasts.
