    How would you roast 1/2 pound per week???

    I am about to start roasting and will probably roast about 1/2 pound per week, but I am sure do more on special occasions. With the following options, which would you choose. I would also appreciate comments as to why you would choose this option. Otherwise quality, convenience, etc.

    Thanks,
    John

    Start with any hot air popcorn popper that you have. If you find you like it then look into a Hottop or a Gene.

    fresh roast 8 plus

    I roast about a pound a week with my Fresh Roast 8 Plus. I do it on the week end because you can't roast that much at a time.

    I also have a Freshroast 8, and enjoy roasting small amounts occasionally.

    Have you guys that are fans of the Freshroast I used anything else that you could compare it to. In my research I just could not find enough information to suggest it was far better than my $5 West Bend Poppery or building a Stir Crazy Turbo Oven. Thanks for any information.

    You may want to check out the Gene Cafe 1/2 lb roaster ... there is a good write up and description on Sweet Marias I have only used the Gene once but have heard a lot of good things about it from people I trust.

    I also think the Gene is a good roaster and I have tried a few roasters. I think it's actually a lot better than the "bean baking" Hottop they all rave about (I don't include the new very expensive digital model in this as I know nothing about it).

    With the Gene though, ignore most of the roasting advice in the manual
