Topic: Gene Cafe Product Review (5 msgs / 91 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Folks,
Someone recently asked about the Hottop and Gene Cafe.  Well, I finally
finished a product review on the Gene Cafe.  It is posted on
Homeroasters.org:http://www.homeroasters.org/php/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id6&thread_idG3#post_3555I tried to cover everything I could think of so it is a bit lengthy, but
broken up with a few pictures.  If there is something you would like to see
covered, please let me know.  I invite and welcome all comments, questions
and requests.
Hope this is helpful to someone ...
Have a great weekend!
Eddie

Eddie,
Fantastic review.  I too have a Gene Cafe.  I like your suggestion of
"timing" the roaster as well as having a spare rbber bumper "just in case."
Keep up the great reviews.
Steve

Very informative!  I would have liked to have read the experiences of 
someone with 400+ roasts under his belt before buying, but I bought 
anyway and have no regrets.
I was wondering about that rubber bumper on the chaff paddle.  I know 
very well how rubber behaves when exposed to heat. I'll be sure to buy 
spares now.
As for the heating time, mine takes about 10 minutes to reach 482, but 
that's with beans.  I'll try without soon.  Exactly what temperature is 
being read by the display, and where is the sensor located?

David,
Thank you for the compliment!
With the drum removed, look into the exhaust port of the roaster.
There is a probe there and I think that is where the temperature is
read that is shown on the display ... I think.
