  1. Hi. I've been thinking of getting into home roasting for ages now, but I've enjoyed my dog&hat subscription so much that it's been on a back burner since joining. I am however starting to think again about it as something I'd like to do. I've seen a few different options online, but never seen any at all in operation so although I've been into speciality coffee for the best part of three decades and know all about first crack and the different roast levels and what beans suit each, all the info I have in my head is purely theoretical. I actually have no hands on experience of roasting at all. I was hoping others might be able to point me in the right direction. I'll be quite specific about my needs as it's usually the best way to get a direct answer. I have no funds in place, but I'm hoping to save about £500 by early next year. I need a machine that's able to roast at least 120g but up to 300g would be better. It'll be in a garage, so although I have asthma I don't see ventilation being a problem. A product with a lot of info on the net would be almost essential. It would help if I could hear first crack, but would that be essential? I don't think I need all sorts of probes and software but wouldn't like to be so hands on that I need to spin the drum by hand. I'd prefer new as I'm not good at DIY and don't want to end up with a machine that breaks in a few months and I can't fault diagnose. Above all it has to give consistent results , or at least capable of it, I don't mind being the weakest link until I learn. I've seen the Gene Cafe on BellaBarista's website. Is there anything else that fits the bill? Thanks
