Very early in my home roasting Journey I "thought" it was a dream roaster.
Nope. It's target market is coffee shops that want to roast their own but
don't want to learn to roast. Like they say, anyone easily trained in
minutes to push the button (and let it do it's thing).

And not saying it doesn't do a "decent" job. Just no way to really make
beans sing.

It's easy to turn beans brown, it's a lifetime Journey to learn to make
beans sing.

A USRC .5k will run a bit more, like $1-1.5k more :) Also be built much more
durable and give you full roast control.

Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.
