Coffee roaster reviews

We test five coffee roasters in the CHOICE labs, including models from Behmor, Hottop, and iCoffee.

Last updated: 1st March 2012

Roasting your own coffee gives you two major advantages over plain old pre-roasted beans – better coffee, and cheaper coffee. Roasting is an art form that takes trial and error, but over time you can fine-tune the beans to taste.

We test five models, priced from $380 to $1499, to tell you:

  • what to buy
  • which models perform the best
  • which are the easiest to use.
