The Gene Cafe CBR-101E incorporates state-of-the-art design, the highest quality materials and expert workmanship. It uses a unique vortex twisting, off-axis chamber, rotating the beans whilst being heated by a fluid bed of hot air to assure complete distribution of the green coffee during roasting. The CRB-101E will roast 250g batches of green coffee beans to your desired roast level, from light to a full dark roast.


Get roasting straight away by adding our x5 250g green coffee bean bundle to your roaster order. We created this bundle with the Gene Cafe CBR101-E in mind, as we know it can be difficult for hobby roasters to source small quantites of unroasted coffee beans. Each coffee includes a reccomended roast profile tried and tested with the Gene Cafe roaster and are all quality, single-origin arabica beans from a range of different regions.
