Gene Cafe CBR-101 (Black)

$ 650.00

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.

I've been roasting with the Gene Cafe for over 15 years and this version is a work in progress.

Love it.

We have had a Gene Cafe since 2013. We roast a lot of coffee. Well over 100 lbs per year. We were using a different brand of green beans and must have missed a small stem or other artifact and we did have a fire that started in the chamber. It was a sad moment. I immediately ordered another and we had it within a week. As the previous review stated, I am happy that there is now an automatic shut off if not attended. I believe there might have been a design change of the chamber as it is super quiet now. Thank you Gene Cafe. Everyone who try’s our custom blend says it’s the best coffee they ever had. 😊

After burning up two Gene's the automatic cut off when left unattended is much appreciated!
