Alex has had his eye on a Bella (actually, the EVO1) for a few years now, even before we got our Giesen W6A, and now that we finally bought a Bella (Mini 500 that is), we thought we'd share a little more about this little roaster, our thoughts and the buying decision which may help any one who is looking at getting one of these.
We had been looking around for a couple of years for a gas powered sample roaster, and after having used the W6A and tinkering with airflow and drum speed parameters, we knew we could only settle on a roaster that had these functions. Unfortunately, there aren't many roaster companies who make, or design small roasters with these features. Our other option, would have been the W1A, which would most likely have been great as well, if not for the stunning price tag. Giesen makes an amazing W6A, but more on that in another (perhaps dedicated W6A) post.
