Positive Product Points

User friendly with intuitive controls.  Roasting profile adjustable on the fly, both time and temperature.

Negative Product Points

Faster cooling would be better.  Not a big deal

Detailed Commentary

I've had this machine for just over four years and I absolutely love it.  This roaster will reliably produce a consistent roast time after time.  The typical roasting time is 16 or 17 minutes to a Full City+ not including cool down.  About 30 minutes total.  Learning to roast with this machine was very easy.  I have had zero problems with the Gene Cafe and I normally roast two or three times a week, 275 grams of green beans per roast.  I would not hesitate to recommend this machine to anyone thinking of buying a home roaster.

Buying Experience

William's Brewing - Online beer and wine making supplies as well as coffee roasting beans and equipment.  I've been buy from William's Brewing for many years.  Fast shipping and excellent customer service.
