peveleth, It is better if you start a post in the forum with your question. These shouts go away in time.

For Gene Cafe Roasters I have an older Gene Cafe Roaster. Temp fluctuates probably showing age. Question: For recent owners of the newer Gene Cafe Roaster, your opinions?

Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

Probably how most people started...
Hi everyone,
New to the forum here. I started roasting with a simple popcorn popper 2-3 years ago, and it served us well. Very simple, basic, only made a mod for cooling. It was a cheapie we got on a special for about $14, blows air in from underneath. Not ideal but it worked for small batches. That's where it started getting a bit much - roasting 6 batches to have coffee for 2 weeks, and that's where I decided it's time to build my own - will post about that in the appropriate part of the forum. It was at that point that I started reading up a lot, looking at commercial roasters, studying the shortcomings and eventually deciding to do it cheaper!
