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!

Not enough heat without a mod, popcorn pops at 180C, while coffee need 230 at least.
They are usually used as beans agitator base, with a halogen lid from a turbo oven as main heat source, lid raised on a stainless steel ring.

For an economical solution, check out Whirley-Pop since you likely already have a stove as a heat source. Otherwise, Renatoa's solution is a popular one and you will find many examples right here on

Life's too short to drink bad coffee.
I'm actually building a roaster right now, I just saw this at target and was wondering for doing really small batches

Unfortunately it won't do. You need higher temperatures. Heating the coffee to 180 degrees won't be enough to get it even close to drinkable.
