  • Fresh coffee. Hopefully.

    Sep 21, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Does what it advertises, after a fashion.
    Cons: Picky to use, poor chaff removal,

    Summary: A small intro.... I've had my Alpenrost for about two years now, and I am somewhat ambivalent about the purchase. Before I purchased the Alp, I'd roasted coffee beans via a variety of methods for about three years. All of them were somewhat ... read more

  • Alpenrost roaster - abysmal performance, poor engineering

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: none.
    Cons: see above.

    Summary: I have been roasting coffee beans for almost 2 years, after paying 30 bucks for a roasted pound of unsatisfactory Kona Extra Fancy. My first roaster was a Hearthware Precision coffee roaster, a fluidized bed-type roaster purchased for around $150. This ... read more

  • Wait for a better roaster.

    Pros: 8 Ounce roast size
    Cons: Too hard too clean. Not reliable.

    Summary: My main complaint is that the clamshell doors do not always close tightly and there is sufficient heat loss to not reach first crack. The doors can't be cleaned without serious disassembly of the unit. When it works it's great. I got mine in ... read more

  • My New Alpenrost

    Rated Show
    Pros: It looks attractive good hype about performance; does 225 grams of green beans
    Cons: Terrible quality control or poor engineering. Does it matter?

    Summary: I had been using a Fresh Roast Air roaster with good success but wanted more body to the coffee. The Alp sounded like a good way to accomplish this. I made an error in not looking at e-opinions before my purchase. I found that the roast would go on to ... read more

  • Great for Homeroasting

    Rated Show
    Pros: Easy to use, ability to do 1/2 pound at a time(++)
    Cons: Needs a ventilated area.

    Summary: I have found that while this is a little expensive for novice home roasting, it produces nice fresh coffee (in 8 oz batches). You do need a ventilated area to funnel out the ... read more
