I've seen the roaster made by hario online...it looks beautiful. Only 354$ i think. Essentially it looks like a glass capsule tumbler with a crank on the side, and it's got a heat source underneath. I'm contemplating purchasing it, has anyone used it?
While that seems pretty cool, with the old world feel of it, I just can't see it being worth 350$. You could make something like that with a coffee can and an alcohol burner for ~30$. Also, it's max load of 50grams is really small.
