    The Gene Café CBR-101 Coffee Roaster

    The Gene Cafe CBR-101 is known as an excellent electric roaster that is suitable for about 250 grams of green coffee. Suitable for both novice and experienced home burners. The convenient control of time and temperature and a full glass roasting chamber make it easy to start your first coffee roast right away. As you become more experienced, you will soon give your own twist to the brandings and put together a brand profile. The CBR-101 uses a unique downward rotating vortex drum which ensures a very even roast.

    Usage Tips:

    • You will soon notice that you tend to burn too dark. Better not do that because the best flavors from the coffee are lost with a dark roast. In addition, dark roasted coffee beans are bad for fully automatic coffee machines.
    • Always stay near the burner while burning for fire safety reasons and to hear the 1st and/or 2nd crack while burning.
    • Because of the loss in moisture during roasting, you will always have about 20% less roasted coffee beans by weight than you put in unroasted beans.
    • Use under the hood or near an open window due to smoke development
    • Use 250 grams of unroasted coffee beans per batch. If you use less the burn time will be shorter, if you use more the burn time will be longer. Always keep this in mind when trying to repeat a burn profile.
    • Start with a temperature of +/- 235 degrees and experiment from there for your next roasts. For example, if you are a bit more experienced, you can start with the highest temperature and turn the temperature lower and lower after the first crack of the beans.
    • Try to cool the beans as quickly as possible after roasting, for example by rocking them back and forth in a sieve.
    • Remove membranes from the burner after each roast. Every 20 roasts, remove the fleece catcher from the machine and clean it in warm water (let it dry well afterwards). Any remaining oiliness makes no difference to the fire quality, but in very serious cases you should clean it to avoid a fire hazard.
    • After roasting, wait at least 4 to 24 hours before using the coffee to make coffee. The coffee tastes best between days 3 and 5 after roasting.
    • We have a broad assortiment of unroasted coffee for you to experiment with.
