The Bullet is a very clever machine, full of tech. So, why should a supposedly critical error only be announced with a cryptic “ErC 0001,” forcing me to lunge for my manual and frantically search for that table?
I mean, this freakin’ machine can talk! Why not have it announce the error in clear speech? And, most of the time, there’s a computer attached, doing all manner of fancy processing and logging of data. Why not have a plain language error message popped up in RoasTime? You could even suggest a corrective course of action in the pop-up.
Error recovery could use a bit of thought, too. Imagine I’ve got a kg of coffee in the machine, partially roasted. Now “ErC 0001” starts flashing. How do I fix (and silence) that error and continue that roast?
The manual says “finish your roast and let the Bullet cool down.” I can’t finish the roast if the power is forced to P0 and the panel is unresponsive. I can dump the beans, but that doesn’t “finish the roast,” it just wastes ~$12 worth of coffee.
