    The Hottop KN-8828P control panel.

    Control Panel Display and Functions

    1. Countdown Timer - shows total amount of time left in the current roasting process.

    2. Roasting Chamber Temperature - shows current roasting chamber temperature.

    3. Fan State - current speed setting of the fan.

    4. Current State- Roasting, Plus Time, Cooling, etc.

    5. Individual Programmable Roasting Segments - These bars show the portion of the programmed temperature which has been achieved for that segment.

    6. Progress of current segment - In the same way the vertical bar shows temperature progress, these four squares show how the programmed time for the current segment is progressing. Each one indicates 25% of the time for that particular segment. Here you see that this segment is at about 50% of the programmed time.

    7. Time remaining - shows time left for the current, active segment.

    8. Segment temperature - This bar represents the user's programmed temperature for that segment.

    Lighting on the LCD screen changes depending on which mode or function is in use to alert the user.

    How does the Hottop Model KN-8828P work?

    Keep it simple: The Hottop is a simple and straightforward roaster to operate. Like prior models, enjoyed by many home roasters, the new B model can be operated on automatic by simply pressing 'Power/Start' button three times. The default program is 18 minutes and/or a target temperature of 422 degrees; the coffee ejects whichever comes first. The roaster will begin warming up followed by a beep that it is ready. Measure and pour green coffee into the top funnel. The roaster is capable of roasting 300 grams but 250 grams are recommended - that's about 9 ounces, but you can roast less too.

    Take control of every step: In advance you can program as many as 8 roast segments though you do not have to program a change for each one. You can determine the target temperature or time for the segment. Fan speed and heating element power adjust to meet your request. At the end of the roast you can add up to six 30-second "plus time" segments for a maximum roast time of 25 minutes. Save up to ten of these roast profiles for repeating or editing in future. Once you tweak a roast for a given coffee to your specific taste you will be able to repeat that roast by recalling the program.

    There is a cleaning routine, described in detail in the manual (see page bottom), to keep your Hottop running smoothly for years to come.

    The cooling tray and stirrer mimics larger, professional drum roasters.

    Looking down the stainless steel roasting chamber. The entire roasting drum removes for cleaning. The single, brass screw shown just above center adjusts the drum when needed.

    The chaff collection tray should be emptied after each roast!

    This is by far the best quality Popper I've tried so far as it being suitable for Coffee Roasting as well as popping the odd cup of corn! Forget the crappy £10 machines...they just won't work for decent coffee roasting! .

    Unlike other popcorn makers that have an outer plastic 'inlet' chamber with a limited circumference, this one is wider, and is made of metal, with a metal edge; see pics:

    also the important part is side hot air vents, not base vent!!
    You can get a great coffee roast in as little as 7 minutes with 3 brief 15sec rest periods in between. See our dedicated Popcorn forum for more tips and some great video tutorials here:
