Answering your last question first, HotTop never came out with their
higher capacity model. They promised it for years but it never
I spent several years developing the computer controlled roaster (CCR)
which was based on a highly modified HotTOp. It works flawlessly.
While doing extensive experimentation, I found that the airlow within
the HotTop is not great. I experimented with continuously
variable fan speed and found that it is truly best to leave it at
full speed all the time.
Although I stopped the manufacture of the CCR systems, there is one
owner who has retired from drinking coffee owing to medical reasons.
He is willing to sell his through me as I would need to do a full
refurbish and re-calibration and then compile new software for it.
