      Hottop will soon be offering a new model of coffee roaster. Years of development and testing in our production and testing facility, and feedback for users have helped us create a coffee roasting appliance that uses standard household current, yet is capable of roasting up to one kilogram (approximately 2.2 pounds) of coffee at a time. This coffee roaster is aimed at two markets:

  • The small coffee shop that needs a large capacity roaster to serve as a sample roaster as well as giving them an affordable way to roast small, "custom batches" for customers while they wait.
  • The home enthusiast looking for an advanced, large-capacity home roaster capable of repeatability and dependable performance. Features Include:
  • Two heating elements can be controlled separately. Should allow this large-capacity roaster to roast smaller batches with control.
  • Color, touch screen control and programming through multiple screens.
  • Maximum Capacity: 1,000 grams (1Kg) - 2.2 pounds.
  • Roasting time: 16-20 minutes.
  • Electric drum roaster: 1,350 - 1,500 watts maximum. Able to use standard household outlet.
  • Greatly improved chaff collection.
  • Two chaff collectors - A tray under the drum and a stainless steel filter screen before the fan.
  • Greatly improved smoke channeling through the interior of the roaster will easily allow indoor roasting.
  • Included high-temperature, flexible hose which connects to an exhaust port to vent smoke out through an open window, into cooking vent, etc.
  • Auto, Program, and Manual modes. Basically this combines the features of the "B" and "P" models, with an improved programmability in the "P" system.
  • 21 Kg (44 pounds) in weight.
  • USB port for saving, loading, and sharing of profiles.
  • Touch screen control as well as computer control through USB port
  • RS-232 port for computer control of the roaster and logging of roasts.
  • Real-time graphing of roast progress
  • Roast profiles can be saved internally as well as on a computer or on a USB flash drive. This will make sharing of profiles easy.

While this is a pre-production model, the hardware is ready for production as seen above. Final programming of the control system is currently being completed.

  2. large capacity cooling tray with forced-air cooling and multiple-arm agitation during cooling. This area also includes a port to pull much of the smoke from the ejected beans through the exhaust system.
