    Looks really helpful - thanks for the link. Haven't got one yet but am looking forward to using it when they're ready for sale in Aus.

      Hi. Looking to advance into the world of home roasting. Does anyone have thoughts or reservations on the Bullet due to its method of heating I.e. Induction as compared to regular electric or gas. I am not sure that I like the idea of electromagnetics being so close to my beans let alone then consuming such beans. I'm not a massive fan or user of the microwave for similar reasons.

        FWIW I can't taste any magnetism at all in my results

        I didn't have a good induction (pun intended) to my Aillio for a host of reasons with build glitches which led to an initial fail to proceed and then the inability to roast without disgorging its contents.. A drum replacement has solved all of my concerns and it's really only in the last few roasts I have been completely happy with the results. I'm satisfied to say the getting to know you period is now over. That said, I have really only had time to run about 15 batches through due to lack of available playtime.

        A batch of Andy's La Mula Geisha roasted just prior to Christmas was and continues to be brilliant.

        They are a great little roaster and I believe they offer terrific value for the modest spend when compared to their competitors.

          Sometimes the saying "Ignorance is bliss." doesn't necessarily apply...

            Sometimes when you plan to spend thousands of your hard earned on something, you may do a little too much research. There's also the thing of wanting to live a long and healthy life. I still wonder about this conduction tech....

              Yep..too much research coupled with a killer dose of misinformation..

              Geez....What will you do when you find out that green beans are routinely fumigated as they cross our borders and those of many other countries?

              I'm wondering what the real agenda might be?

                A newbie, no introduction, no info in his profile, (two posts, both critical) who attempts to undermine an innovative piece of roasting equipment, appears from nowhere, no credentials, no science or explanation of reasons for the mischievous posts other than,

                "I am not sure that I like the idea of electromagnetics being so close to my beans let alone then consuming such beans."

                Why am I suspicious? he has all of the hallmarks of a number of other stirrers who have mysteriously come and gone recently.

                  These people obviously need to adjust their daily grind

                    Easy gents... No agenda here. Forum...to open up a constructive conversation, if possible. Who isn't misinformed these days, hence a critical perspective of most things (in the beginning). If anyone has information regarding the induction tech. I would be super interested in hearing your opinion. Otherwise I will continue my own research. Cheers.

                          Now wait just a damn minute, Jon! I'm still here, aren't I? Self-reform (along with a mighty good whack of willpower) is always possible.

                          If you're interested, further research on this idea of spiritual evolution and personal transformation can be conducted by watching David Cronenberg's A History Of Violence (but not without a fine espresso or two).

                          P.S. Can I borrow that marvellous pic for my avatar? Where have you been all my life?

                            So you're not worried about radio waves or wifi, nor radiation from visible light, or in general stepping outside for some vitamin D... but you're worried about microwaves? Buy the roaster. The coffee you drink will harm you more than the microwaves will.

                              Give the guy a break. For crying out loud. He's entitled to be skeptical.

                              If KoffeePlease's concerns prove misguided, politely assuage him (preferably without being smarmy), and leave it at that. Let's move on.
