I dont really roast at home much and in a large part thats because I havent been able to find a setup that really makes it easy for me. I liked the hottop the best of all of the gadgets that I have used so far because the cooling cycle makes everything fairly easy. The downside of the hottop is that you have to wait for the thing to cool between batches. I used a hottop D, which didnt give me much control - I imagine that the hottop B would be better. I found the whole monstrously long cooling thing to make the gene cafe more difficult to use than it needed to be. I dont know much about the behmor, but I seem to remember reading that the cooling takes a similar amount of time. If I were buying anything, it would be the quest m3 from Taiwan, though there is no local support. It looks like you can preheat to the drop temp that you want, adjust fan speed and temperature, roast back to back and cool pretty quickly. I imagine that the electric element will give the controls some lag, but I dont think that youre going to get gas heat control in a nicely put together package for anywhere near the price.
