Topic: hot top roaster??? 1/2lb (3 msgs / 70 lines)
1) From: joe frabosilio
Does anyone have an update as to when the new hot top roaster is coming out?  The last report I have is before Christmas.
Nov is a couple of days away.
Thanks,
Joe Frabosilio

Sad to say.... It may not make it before Christmas.  Our favorite importer
(Baratza) has backed out of their distribution position. At this point we
don't even know who will bring it to us.  I'm sitting patiently and waiting
on a new set of chips that is supposed to eliminate many of the problems. I
gather that if the early adopters don't get their new parts there aren't any
new roasters either.

I am afraid it will be long time after Christmas when it will be officially
imported into the USA ... perhaps in time for the 2003 Christmas?  However,
right now, you can either order it directly from the manufacturer in Taiwan,
seehttp://www.hottop.com.tw/or through some non-USA importers who would
ship a 120V model to this continent, such as La Macchinetta, see below:
