I have been "home" roasting for more than 10 years. I have never been disappointed by any product from Coffee Bean Corral. This includes the roasters. If you are considering home roasting, I strongly recommend this roaster. When you combine the fabulous information from the coffee bean matrix to your taste and you roast the coffee bean to your desired color. It's magic...

Wonderful home roasting system! First roaster purchase for me. I was able to watch the roast, make adjustments with the variable speed fan and temperature selector. When I roast I run it on low temp and high fan for a minute, then cool for a minute. I do ths twice. It starts a nice even roast. I read about this online. Then I run it on a full cycle with a lower fan speed and wait on first crack. If I don't get anything, I up the temp to the middle setting. All beans are not created equal. I heard first crack loud and clear. 2nd crack sounds lower and comes in at different times depending upon the specific bean (almost right away or 2 minutes later). I've used it 5 times and its a breeze. Easy to clean too. I'd highly recommend it to anybody new to home roasting. Get the 500, not the 300. It costs a little more but the control it gives you is well worth it. The coffee was magnificent!

I'm delighted, too, by the Fresh Roast 500, which has given great roasts without fail for more than two years. The first big plus is that the unit fits nicely under my stove's range hood, which in my case is 13 1/2" above the stove top. With the fan on high I can roast up to medium-dark color indoors year-round without smoking up the kitchen. I start each roast at low heat, running the fan at full speed for about 4-5 minutes until the beans are rolling about evenly on the air bed. Next I move the heat up to medium and slightly reduce the fan speed for another 4 minutes or so. At that point the beans are beginning to brown nicely. Then, I turn down the fan to listen for the first crack, which starts almost immediately, then throw the fan into cooling mode at the start of the second crack (or sooner or later when tweaking roasts) to see what other flavors I can draw out of the bean. To me, it's the ease of monitoring the roast by sight, aroma, and color that really makes this roaster a winner. In fact, even for someone looking to eventually move up to a larger roaster, I would recommend buying and keeping the Fresh Roast 500 as a sample roaster.
