The year I spent with the popper has been invaluable, but I'm glad I stepped up to the Hottop. My first few roasts have been great!
asfolks wrote:Sam, thanks for the additional info. I was especially curious about the display temp versus the bt/et probe temps. I am considering installing the probes, but I'm a little overwhelmed by all of the information available on the topic. I'm enjoying the roaster so much that I'm hesitant to risk damaging it. Do you have any recommendation on placement or technique?
To be clear, I am extremely happy with roasts I getting. It's more a desire for more information, more knowledge, more of all things coffee! I will probably hold what I've got for awhile, until I just can't stand it anymore. With this coffee obsession I am finding that usually comes sooner than later.
I only have one roast of the Sakaro under my belt, but it seems to compare favorably to some of the other Naturals floating around. I would put it in the "fruit bomb" category.
Between the Hottop and some new brewing techniques (the Tiamo "Wave" is the latest) and all of the great coffees available, my coffee addiction is in full swing.
Thanks again, Alan
