Product Guide: Gene Cafe'

Product Guide: Gene Cafe'

Nov. 23, 2016

We have been impressed with this machine since we started carrying it a decade ago.

The Gene Cafe's unique knob controls allow for manual adjustments of time and temperature during the roast cycle. The off-axis glass roast chamber allows for maximum visibility and the large chaff collector does an excellent job collecting chaff.  The collector has an attachment for a dryer duct to make the roaster nearly smoke free. Although there is a some noise created by the metal parts inside the roast chamber, it's still probably the quietest home roaster on the market.

It has a half pound batch capacity. This roaster is a hybrid between a drum roaster and an air roaster so you get the benefit of even roasting from both the rotating drum and hot air circulation. We carry them in both red and black.

Interested in getting one for $50 off of retail pricing? We will mark down Gene Cafe Roasters, Friday, Nov. 25th through Monday Nov. 28th. They will be marked down from $585 to $535.
