The Gene Cafe CBR-101 has established itself as an excellent roaster capable of producing about half a pound of uniformly roasted coffee (250g). It uses a unique vortex twisting, off-axis chamber rotation which assures complete distribution of the green coffee during roasting. This motion is one of the main reasons for the roasted coffee's uniform color.

Received a refurnished unit not working properly and support is non existent

I received a refurbished unit not working properly and support is on existent.
I was told repair time is 20+ days, in the one email that did get a response, was not even offered a return shipping label or any further instruction. I have another Gene Cafe that I bought new 2 years ago, that has been a good experience.......The refurbished purchase to this point is a nightmare.
I have no interest in waiting a month for a repair. I want to buy from people who care and will immediately ship a properly tested and functioning unit, no repairs, no wait time. Beware

Excellent roaster

For the last 4-5 years I have been using a fresh roast roaster. It was time to move up. This unit is easy to use, roasts consistently and has intuitive controls. It is well designed and feels substantial. I would recommend that the cooling cycle fan speed be adjusted to about twice it’s current output or that a third control knob ( fan speed control) be installed. I have no other concerns. After I’ve used it for 6-12 months I may have other suggestions.

Couldn't have been better

Looked clean and new. Like Factory New. Takes a few roasts (learning curve), to get to your desired roast. I'm very happy that I don't have to spend so much time roasting due to the nice batch size.

Could have been better

I haven't used the roaster yet, but thought that it could have come cleaned up better. I have purchased refurbished equipment before and it usually comes looking like new. This one still had coffee bean residue and the clear plastic parts could have been cleaned better.
