NEW CBR-101 ROASTERS - BACK IN STOCK!

CBR-101 Black Coffee Roaster (120v)

$ 585.00

Gene Cafe Home Coffee Roaster

The Gene Cafe CBR-101 has established itself as an excellent roaster capable of producing approximately half a pound of uniformly roasted coffee (250g). Ideal for both the novice, and more experienced home coffee roaster.  With simple time and temperature knob controls, and easy-to-view glass chamber, the user is able 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.  

FREE shipping in US, use code SHIP101 at checkout.

FREE three-pound green coffee sample pack now included with your CBR-101 purchase! No code needed, we will include the sample pack with every roaster.

Goodbye & good riddance popcorn popper

After years of buying premium roasted beans from Stumptown, I decided to try home roasting. Six months of using a popcorn popper lead me to take the plunge and buy a Gene Cafe Roaster. The popcorn popper worked but I found ambient temperatures had a profound effect on the final product. Now, consistent results are easy regardless of ambient temperatures. I look forward to years of delicious home roasted beans.

Needs some Key Features

Needs to have better notifications systems:
-When it hits the target temp
-hold how long the cooling took; it clears about 30 seconds after completing
-few more things

Great Service, Great Product

I ordered the CBR-101 Coffee Roaster. I arrived exactly when it was promised and is a wonderful product so far. It's easy to operate, easy to clean, and makes a great roast coffee!

Check these service dates!!!

I put in a review when I ordered the repair part. They arrived yesterday and I just installed the new 120V heater while watching the disassembly video and the "install heater video", pausing and reviewing as needed. I just ran the unit for a couple of minutes to "burn clean" the new heater.

Thanks for the quick service -during the holidays no less- and the informative "how to" video library.
