I hear of a lady in Chino California also selling the Hottop. Contacted who is in San Diego and SaraASimpson@Yahoo who is in Chino. both are pretty close. Chino is actually a lot closer to Hottop in Irvine. Sara says her price is about $500. and Hottop4less is about $525.

I have an order placed. Waiting the the new version to come to stock. Dennis

I picked up a Hottop for 535 inc. shipping, It works well, but does smoke a bit after the filters start to get dirty (keep well ventilated). I have done about 30lbs through it. We are using it as a Sample roaster while waiting for our Ambex Roaster to come in. It seems to work best with about 12oz (weight) of Green, If you start with just the 8oz. it recomends you will have to manually eject the beans to keep from over roasting. Happy Roasting
