1) From: Irene and Lubos Palounek
Are there any "early adopters" of the KN-8828P on this list?
"/The first thirty units are scheduled to be available 2/1/2007. General 
KN-8828P availability is scheduled for 3/1/2007"/
     
That is a clipping fromhttp://hottopusa.com/news.htmlRegards, Lubos --  "PAL (at) ieee (dot) org" (12 characters total)

You have to learn the Code, Lubos. The stuff I quoted would clog an
Industrial Drain- it's known as Industrial BS or Marketing Palaver.
Some people fell for it and sent in their orders and $$. Don't be one of
them until at least 1/1/2008.
You call them "early adopters,"
the company calls them "Soft Marks."
Would there be any conceivable reason why you or any friend of yours would
want to own an Initial Production sample of ANYTHING?
The Company builds a few prototype Veeblefetzers with no development time or
any longevity studies or estimates. My roaster is almost in that category,
but I'm not going to try to sell any.
Why would anybody buy a thing sight unseen? If it's around in 2008, read the
rave reviews or watch for KN-8828PII or KN-8929P.
Just my Song Stang.

Of course, so did Zassenhaus and what the hell is up with them lately?
/Steve , that is true, but in a contrast to //Zassenhaus//, HotTop people are still doing the right things and supporting their products.
In my opinion, the HotTop always was the best available *home* roaster.  For best cup, coffee beans  should be roasted about every three days, not less often than a week or 8 days, correct?  For many people, 250 gram batch is about the right batch size. The programmability will probably bring the quality of the roasted beans to a new, higher level.
