Once started on the path of making your own espresso there is no going back to buying that can of pre-ground coffee at the supermarket. Great espresso coffee beans really make a difference and opening that bag of freshly roasted coffee and smelling it’s content may even invoke a smile. Maybe it is time to consider roasting your own coffee. It is possible with this Gene Cafe CBR-101 roaster.
