Would never even consider switching to Android without your videos, Marques. This would make the switch much easier!

My epiphany: 5 years ago while on deployment on a Minesweeper in the Persian Gulf, roasting coffee topside on a Gene cafe using Sweet Maria's beans and pulling shots before watch that were buttery, sweet, and rich. Haven't had the opportunity to get back into espresso since, but hope to soon! I'm sure this community will get me fired up again.

I used a Gene Cafe five years ago with great success, but am looking for a roaster with larger roast volume for a moderate cost. +Jon Kollmar has an intriguing custom-built roaster that I am exploring, the Honey Badger 1000 (http://www.homeroasters.org/php/forum/viewthread.php?thread_id=2521). Is anyone roasting more than 1lb/roast? If so, what roaster/setup are you using?

The best I can get out of the Hottop is 300g per roast - that's 2/3 of a pound.

Thoughts on the OE Lido? Considering a purchase in the near future.

Agree, Randy. I'm leaning towards the Lido also. Having a hard time resisting its solid construction and the charm of the Orphan Espresso folks...seem like great people who are committed to quality.
