The Gene Cafe CBR-101 has established itself as an excellent roaster capable of producing about half a pound of uniformly roasted coffee. It uses a unique vortex twisting, off-axis chamber rotation which assures complete distribution of the green coffee during roasting.

Beautiful machine, works well. Easy to use, just a little stiff to return the canister back to the chamber, and some of the wording in the instructions was not clear.
Got my Gene cage roaster 3 days ago, works like a charm. Only took 3 days to arrive in Qc. Special thank you to the owner Jon who gives the best service and is very knowledgeable about helping you chose which coffee to buy based on your preference. Made the buying process very easy and enjoyable. Would recommend to everyone.
I think it's pretty nice for beginners like me. User friendly.
The roaster arrived when promised, and works like a charm. The five pounds of coffee were quality beans, with great flavour. I like
