  • AVOID Chinese Copy Coffee Roasters

    Lately there are a LOT of Chinese knockoff coffee roasters and copy coffee grinders around on ebay so as we're into coffee roasters please don't waste your money on inferior roaster copies which are NOT up to quality standards nor will they roast as you'd expect them to.

    The ones to look for are copies of:

    Hearthware i-Roast
    Hearthware i-Roast2
    Hearthware Precision Coffee Roaster

    AVOID also, flat bottomed Stir Crazy popcorn makers which ebay Sellers are trying to list as Coffee Roasters...they are a waste of good money!!

    If you find anything on ebay which is a copy then post below to keep our users aware

      Shame on these chinese manufacturers. I wonder if the Companies like Hearthware know about this infringement?

      You're right. Nespresso products also have the same issue in particular the capsules but there is a Patent Copyright Law which only lasts for 15 years so after that time has lapsed then the original branded product can be remanufactured to another brand without a problem.
