Suitable for both the novice and experienced home green coffee roaster.  With intuitive controls of time and temperature and full-view glass chamber, allow for a simple out-of-the-box roasting experience.  More seasoned home roasters will love the consistency of the CBR-101 and will be able to fine-tune desired roast profiles.  The CBR-101 uses a unique vortex twisting, off-axis chamber rotation which assures complete distribution of the green coffee during roasting, and consistent roasting results.
