I've had my Gene Cafe for over four years and it's worked very well.
I originally bought it because I liked the idea of being able to manually
control the temperature throughout the roast cycle. However, Gene Cafes must
vary significantly because at max temperature I get first crack at 11-12
minutes, and second crack at 15-16 minutes. I'm comfortable with those
numbers so always leave it at max temperature.
I do all my roasting in a large well ventilated building so don't need to
worry about funneling the exhaust anywhere. I have no problem hearing both
first crack and second crack.
Ny Gene Cafe has lasted longer than any of my other roasters, and I'm thrilled
