I am a user of the Gene Café Drum Coffee Roaster. I like this coffee roaster because it has a half pound capacity when roasting, so I don’t have to roast everytime I have coffee.
I just roast my beans by batches. This roaster is very good in the sense that it is quiet while roasting compared to other roasters.
It is also less smoky unlike the other roasters I owned, but it get a little smoky when I use darker blends. You can also finish its cooling process by removing the coffee beans in the drum as soon as the roasting is done and you can just let it stand in a wire mesh. The controls are also really easy to use.
