CBR-101 - Red Coffee Roaster (120v)

Sold Out

The Gene Cafe CBR-101 has established itself as an excellent roaster capable of producing about half a pound of uniformly roasted coffee (250g). Ideal for the novice, with basic time and temperature controls, and easy-to-view glass chamber allows the user to watch the full progression of the roast.  The CBR-101 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. View and download the Owner's Manual here.
