  • Hottop 1kg first look!

    Doesn't seem to have been posted yet so if anyone missed it here's the news:

    News from Hottop USA - NEW Hottop Coffee Roaster for 2013

    Looks ace. Something tells me this puppy is gonna be pricey.

    EDIT: A poster on HB said they received a message from HottopUSA about the pricing and ETA "the production model should be available in 3-4 months and the price is
    around $5,800". Far out.

    Hmm...sounds like seriously little wattage for a 1kg roaster- especially if they're proposing 110V on a US model..

    As a comparison, a 1kg Has Garanti electric is not much more and uses 3900W of element. It's also not that much more- for full commercial, not domestic.

    Perhaps I'm missing something, but I can't see the value in this one.

      With only 1350-1500W it would be akin to trying to roasting coffee with a hair dryer... a $5800 hair dryer. I simply cannot see it working... unless each batch runs for 30 mins or so.... and that can't be good. Like Chris, I too do not see any value proposition here.

        I wish someone would just get on with it and make a Domestic gas powered roaster that you can buy off the shelf for under $1500

          The oven on my KKTO is 1300 watts and can do 800 grams in 17 minutes.

          Of course, not as techie as the Hottop but only $700.

                  Buy off the shelf? I thought these are made to order? How much are they? There isn't really much info out there.

                        Thanks so much for sharing the Huky 500 with us... I've never heard of it before but I plugged it into Goggles and there's quite a bit to look at...

                        Logga, would you care to share your experiences with us...

                        Just start a new thread and I'm sure you will find a great deal of interest and support....

                          Should check this out. Pity it's only Germany as far as I can see (google translate). Röstbiene # Probenröster - Kaffeeröster - Trommelröster - Profilröster - Startseite

                            I have a commercial KKTO and I have regularly done 800g.

                            You need good insulation on the base.

                            I haven't tried to do a bigger batch.

                            $5,800 for a 1Kg hobby roaster seems over the top.

                            However I suppose you would need to see it and also get confirmation on the price.

                              It's looking like a good thing, the pricing is at the pointy-end but remember this is a prototype, the release version might be different and might have a keener price.
