[Homeroast] RIP Caffe Rosto

I also had one of my 2 Rostos give it up recently after 5-6 years of
steady use and the occasional repair--bypassing the thermal fuse,
scraping and/or blowing out the gunk--and a few mods (installed
thermocouples, split wiring). This time it was a motor bearing that I
can't readily repair. And just when I was getting the hang of it.......
I felt like I had to replace it (no spare?!?!!!) but since the iRoast
was (is?) out of stock I was >forced< to get a Behmor. It's been
about a month--still learning the ropes, but I'm warming up to it.
It's easy to like the capacity.
Probably more than a few Rosto users on the list--free advice is only
a careless question away!
Condolences & best regards,
roasting in da weeds
