I have had both an both will roast great coffee.  The Hoptop I will roast a larger volume of beans, the Quest is completely manual.  My Hoptop was a first generation I rebuilt twice.  I was looking at a large volume of parts for the 3rd rebuild (~$500) and decided to go a different route.  My roast volume had decreased at this time so I ordered the Quest.  It is pure manual.  About the largest quantity of beans you can roast in one is 200g. It does the best with a volume of about 125-150g.  There are temp loggers and S/W available that will let you track and accurately reproduce most any roast profile you desire.  Good Luck.

But I'd really like to learn about the roasting process and would like a more manual machine. Or least one where I can determine all or most of the variables of the roast.  From the looks of it, it seems likes that leaves me with either one of the Hoptops or the Quest.  Can anyone comment on those machines or recommend another roaster.
