So I've been noticing that it seems the Behmor is more recommended as thus more often selected as the first major 'upgrade' rather than the GeneCafe here on the list.... Granted it is $200 cheaper or thereabouts.... Let me just say, however, that after 3 months with my GeneCafe, I could not be happier. I absolutely love it and have had not a single solitary issue. More importantly, I am roasting better coffee that I ever thought possible. My old stomping grounds, the local gourmet coffee shop (that 'roasts' their own beans) is now a sad, sad replacement for my own brew. The Gene Cafe is fast, easy and is giving me unparalleled flexibility. The 1/2 pound limit simply allows me to tinker even more often. What is truly amazing, is that I can know truly TASTE the difference between a citi roast, a full citi, full citi plus, and even french and vienna. Wonderfully, I have found (as predicted) that I now prefer my coffee roasted below french. I love trying the same beans roasted over the spectrum and enjoying each and every sip. Can you accurately control the roast to this degree and reproducibility with the pre-programmed roast (only 5????) profiles in the Behmor??? Because you sure as heck can with the GeneCafe (limitless!!!)... I can now roast my beans EXACTLY as I like anywhere along the spectrum. I can hear the first crack clearly, the second crack as well.. I can observed the color of my beans clearly throughout the entire roast process as well... Everything you need to watch your roast, follow your roast, control your roast, and truly enjoy the entire process.... And it is so amazingly tasty.... Go GeneCafe!!!!
