FreshRoast Plus 8 - This is the machine I learned to home roast on. Been using it for one year now and absolutely love it. It really shines when you factor in cost, performance, and quality.
I usually roast 2-3 times per week or just enough to keep a "degassed" reserve on hand to match consumption. If I had more mouths to feed (or keep caffeinated ), then I would move up to a larger capacity roaster, but for my wife and I, the FRP8 is perfect.
Where I am now with coffee roasting - Inches away from mastering Ethiopean Yirgacheffe.
