This is a good roaster and it is not anywhere near has smoky as all the others I've had. Roasts the beans very evenly (thanks to auger). Really good for light to City roasts. If you like darker roasts, you are going to want to use a drum roaster instead of this air roaster. Thats not a problem with this roaster but rather a difference in the types of technolgies out there.

This is my third Nesco coffee roaster, they are the best for home coffee roasting, I get a fantastic even roast with the touch of a button, itís a smokeless system, with a great chaff collection system that works well. My friend was looking for a home coffee roaster and I saw this on an infomercial many years ago and got it for my friend and he loveís it, so I had to get one for myself. Iím glad that Overstock has it because this is the best price.
Ordered this inexpensive coffee roaster to start my new hobby. Very pleased so far with this product. It is very user friendly. If I could change anything it woudl be to have the capability of being able to break down a little more for cleaning. It is hard to clean the inside of the roasting container but overall I LOVE this roaster and the product it produces.
We had the opportunity to try two other roasters before we selected this one. We'd skillet-roasted coffee for years but decided it was time to purchase a roaster. The first one we tried was quite small and the volume of coffee one could roast was meager plus it was very smoky. The second was better but very smoky and noisy. The Nesco Pro 800-watt Coffee Bean Roaster is an amazing roaster and will roast beans very dark. We purchase Peaberry beans, which are small, and dense so a roaster needs to be able to roast to the very dark roast we prefer. The only reason I gave this roaster a 4 star instead of a 5 star is the lid is not strong enough to hold and we have to put a weight on it to keep it from stopping the roast before it is finished and the roasting cylinder is difficult to clean. It is relatively quiet and smokeless which is very nice.
