    Gene Cafe CBR-1200

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Looks like it's close (in US/UK and USA at least). 3500 Euro or 4200 quid in the UK which sounds like $6-8k here...

    it is crazy, I found a price at a dealer and it is 4998 euro. I wouldn't buy this roaster for that money.

    Agree - like the smaller version, looks like you have limited control over parameters. Anyone know more about useability? for $6K it would need to offer a lot!

    Updating this thread:

    From what I can see, the previous importer of the Gene Cafe into Australia (Avacuppa) no longer exists. This means that self-import is currently the only way of getting one. More importantly, no spares in Australia either.

    I have contacted the manufacturer to enquire on where to from here and also for an update on the CBR-1200 which is available in the UK now but at near $7k AUD which I suspect is a pretty big ask.



    Edit and update- They have reappeared and that's a good thing. Perhaps Genesis contacted them.

    I'll contact Avacuppa re an update on the CBR-1200

    Chowing down happily on my hat....

    This is interesting as Avacuppa still have a functioning website and even have the Gene for sale at the moment. This is the only one I,ve seen for sale for quite some time.

    Bizarre. They have been off the air for at least a few weeks.

    I'll get in contact with them and see if I can get an update. Good that they're back and that electrical compliance for more stock is obviously complete.

    Bumping this thread for those who wish to discuss the 1200 further.

    To the best of my understanding, the importer (Avacuppa) has no intention of bringing it to Australia.
