Topic: [coffee] +Why did you move up? (30 lines)

One reason to move up from a popper is that you need to roast more
coffee.
 
I got started on this home-roasting thing because I only drank coffee at
home on the weekends, and only one or two pots a week.  I would buy
fresh-roasted coffee, but before I could use even a half-pound it would
go stale.  The idea that green beans keep forever and that I could roast
a few ounces at a time and have many varieties available was too much to
resist.
 
But then I moved near family and took a year off from work and all of a
sudden I went from using three ounces a week to over three pounds a
week.  That's a lot of popper roasting.
 
After working my way through a Hearthware Gourmet, a Hearthware
Precision, an Alp, and now a Hottop I'm looking forward to getting a new
iRoast.  I'll use the Hottop for bulk roasting (for family and friends)
and the iRoast for "gourmet" roasts.
