Hottop Coffee Roaster

$1,900.00$2,900.00

The Hottop Coffee Roaster is arguably the best home/sample coffee roaster on the market. Silipo Coffee have been using Hottop Coffee Roasters for 5 years. We use them for all our sample roasts and feel they are the best. There are definitely cheaper roasters on the market but none come close to this if you want ease of use and great fresh roasted coffee beans. The Hottop comes in two styles the Hottop KN-8828B-2K which is a more manual version giving you incredible custom control over your roast while you are roasting. The Hottop KN-8828P-2K is a more automated roaster with a full program which can be set to roast exactly the same for each roast. This is great to replicate a great roast. If you wish to track and log on a computer there is also an option to have a Probe Upgrade attached to either roaster. This way you can map and chart your graph by the bean actual temperature. Just select the style from the drop down menu when ordering. Free shipping on all products. Australia wide only.

The Hottop KN-8828B-2K:

The Hottop coffee roaster with programmability! After you set a target temperature and roast time the coffee beans will be automatically ejected, the B controller gives you the ability to adjust the heat power and speed of the fan at any time during the roast to build the profile you want! And if you have liked what you did, you can save the program at the end of the roast for next time!

This Version 2 unit includes a manual eject mechanism for removing the beans in case of a power failure, as well as some internal engineering modifications. The K variants means it comes with a K-type thermocouple temperature sensor located more closely to the bean mass, so it is more accurate than the original sensor (though still not as accurate as our bean mass probe retrofit).

The great thing about the Hottop B over every other Hottop controller is that it provides proportional heater power control. All other controllers simply turn the heater full on or full off, whereas the B allows you to provide constant heating at different power levels for the ultimate control and evenness in roast. It really is the controller for the roasting enthusiast!

Note that this is an official full-specification 230-240v/50Hz roaster, not the cheaper 110v/60Hz units designed for American power systems. 110v/60Hz roasters will not work properly on 230-240v/50Hz supplies and may fail prematurely, even if voltage-conversion devices are used.

Specifications:

  • Roast size: 250-300g
  • Temperature range: 80-220 oC
  • Available roast time range: 8-25 minutes
  • In-roast controls: Start, Stop, Time up/down, Fan speed up/down, Heater power up/down
  • Roast memory locations: 3
  • Dimensions (cm): 48 x 25 x 35 (wxdxh)
  • Weight: 10.5kg

The Hottop KN-8828P-2K:

This is the flagship programmable coffee roaster from Hottop! The P controller allows you to program a roast before it starts by setting the desired time, temperature and fan speed for each of its 8 roasting segments. Once you start the roast, the electronics takes over and intelligently adjusts the heater power to reach and maintain the temperature you requested. This allows you to program the temperature profile you want upfront and allow the controller to turn the heater on and off as required to roughly follow that profile.

This Version 2 unit includes a manual eject mechanism for removing the beans in case of a power failure, as well as some internal engineering modifications. The K variants means it comes with a K-type thermocouple temperature sensor located more closely to the bean mass, so it is more accurate than the original sensor (though still not as accurate as our bean mass probe retrofit).

The Hottop P doesn’t provide the same granularity of heater control as the Hottop B. The P controller simply turns the heater full on or full off whereas the Hottop B allows variable power levels. However the extra programmability it offers over the B means it’s the ideal solution if you want to program a roast and sit back and enjoy observing the process – the closest you’ll get to a ‘set-and-forget’ roasting solution!

The P controller gives you a full sized colour LCD control panel and the capacity to save, edit and rename programs in 10 memory locations! The backlight on the display changes colour depending on the mode you’re in (roasting, programming, erasing etc), and in keeping with the quality of this flagship unit, the Hottop P controller uses high-quality luxurious silicon control buttons, unlike all of the other controllers which place the buttons behind a plastic membrane.

Note that this is an official full-specification 230-240v/50Hz roaster, not the cheaper 110v/60Hz units designed for American power systems. 110v/60Hz roasters will not work properly on 230-240v/50Hz supplies and may fail prematurely, even if voltage-conversion devices are used.

Specifications:
