It's a lot to read, but if you're considering the Gene Cafe, you'll want to know why it's simply the best in home roasting...
With the Gene Cafe you get the best of both worlds - unparalelled control of the roast in addition to the high capacity...a rare find in a home coffee roaster, indeed.

Capable of roasting up to 10 ounces of green coffee beans, the Gene Cafe is exceptionally quiet and produces a very consistent roast. This roaster allows extensive control over the roasting beans - the temperature can be instantly changed with the turn of a knob. And the real-time temperature readout means you always know the temperature inside the roasting chamber (although you still must keep in mind that the internal bean temperature will be 50-100º F degrees higher after the first crack).

The glass roasting chamber also allows you to see the beans as they roast so you can easily watch the roast progress through the various stages. Control, consistency and quiet operation - you can't go wrong with the Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster!
More about the Gene Cafe roasting process:

The ability to control the variables is key to producing the perfect roast, and the Gene Cafe has been engineered to give complete control over time and temperature– two important factors for achieving perfectly roasted beans. The Gene Café’s control panel is equipped with temperature and time controls capable of producing a full range of coffee styles, from a light American roast to a dark Italian roast that is ideal for espresso. The system’s large Pyrex® roasting chamber and clear safety cover allow users to check the progress of the entire half-pound batch– an advantage over many other roasters.

Gene Café’s Total Control system allows the user to make time and temperature adjustments on the fly without having to interrupt or re-start the roasting process. LED displays provide time and dynamic temperature information while audible tones alert the user to cycle changes. Those new to home coffee roasting can follow the instruction manual’s simple time and temperature chart while experienced roasters will be pleased by how easy it is to fine-tune the process to personal tastes. Gene Café’s unique, patented off-axis roasting chamber and hot air convection system ensure even roasting regardless of the batch size. And because the flow-through convection system does not recirculate the hot air, Gene Cafe is exceptionally efficient at removing chaff, even from dry processed beans.

As with all home coffee roasters, roasting into the dark stages can product a fair amount of smoke. We recommend using the Gene roaster under a vent hood or other ventilated area. We also suggest being near your home roaster during the roasting cycle to ensure a quality and safe roast.
