    Rebune Coffee Roaster

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,

    Long time lurker and first post time poster!

    Recently I have decided to upgrade my 10 year old saeco via venezia, I had ment to replace it years ago and had been getting less and less satisfied with the results since I have had access to better coffee.

    The tipping point was when a friend made me a coffee with freshly roasted beans in an E61 machine. it was a revelation to say the least!

    Based on this I have purchased an 2nd hand Isomac TEA II and will buy the correct tamp and other essentials. I also want to start roasting and wanted to look at a few of the basic options. I liked the look of the bread maker option and came across the Rebune/barwell coffee roaster. about $150 on evilbay.searched here and could not find a review.

    the pan and stir mechanism looks good, I was thinking to buy one and pull out the thermostat and replace it with a PID. also use it without a lid and add a small fan and have the thermistor sitting in the edge of the pan so the stir bar just goes past without hitting it.

    at the price I would be willing to give it a try. really I would like a nice fancy looking roaster but this may just do for a start.

    If there is a better simple reasonable option for less than $200 I love to hear when toy guys are using

    Have you bought this roaster at the end? I'm curious to read your impressions about it.

    I can't find my original post but this popped up 7 years ago in this thread

    My comment was:

    It makes a great bean soup, they stir and simmer, the condensation drips back down and they stir and simmer. After about an hour I still had soggy beans.

    Interesting? Yes.
    Roaster? No.
    It's been 11 years now since I bought that one and yes, the same beans are in it on the shelf at the Snobbery.

    Maybe they have changed the heater and it might actually roast now?!?!?

    Look forward to hearing how it goes.
