I've had my gene Cafe for 5-6 years. besides the replacing of the heating element (not really the biggest deal) The biggest problem I have is the lack of an adequate cooling system. If I were going to get back into home roasting (an I might) I would get nothing less than the Hot-top programmable http://www.sweetmarias.com/sweetmarias/coffee-roasters/drum-roasters/hottop-roaster-basic.htmlI hate to admit though, probably the most important reason I had for stopping was the more I learned about coffee and roasting, the more I realized I didn't know half as much as I thought I did. The fact I drink specifically espresso made it that much more difficult .
