Anyone seen this thing?http://www.cafecoffees.com/aeroroast2.htmlIs it any good?  Some folks on CoffeeGeek suspect it lacks enough power to
do any serious roasting..  Still, its interesting that it uses Halogen as a
heat source, which I believe some other homeroasters were doing.  I wonder
if Halogens in a rotating drum wouldn't be a good way to go in general...

Barry Paradox: Consider k to be the greatest element of the set of natural
numbers whose description require maximum of 50 words: "(k+1) is a natural
number which requires more than 50 words to describe it."

2) From: Ed Needham
It's an off the shelf rotisserie oven with a strapped on halogen light 
because the oven by itself could not generate enough heat.  Light was added 
after the fact to boost the heat.  Not bad for a home built but sad for a 
commercially sold machine.
I have no idea if it roasts beans well.
