Breaking news! Genio launches new 3kg micro roaster.

Thursday, 10 December, 2020

Genio Roasters today announced the Genio 3 micro coffee roaster, a new 3kg coffee roaster that will redefine the micro roasting landscape. The Genio 3 is ideal for beginner or sample roasting. The roaster is extremely mobile and compact, making it easy to install and start roasting.

Genio sees their range of coffee roasters as a lifelong investment and promotes the new addition to the range to existing roasters as a back-up roaster and to occupy specialised smaller batches.

The new Genio 3.

“Times have changed and with 2020 as the back-drop, we have noticed that although people may not have the money for a large investment, they are still driven by their desire to express their individuality and differentiate their product from others” says Neil Maree, founder and owner of Genio Roasters. “Coffee enthusiasts may have their own career but at the same time they have a passion for the coffee industry and they recognise that they can supplement their income somewhat.

This is where the 3kg Genio roaster comes in. It is an affordable roaster for the small business owner and for the entrepreneur as it enables entry-to-market. The Genio 3 is the tool that can transform someone’s passion into earnings with their own unique product, with their own individual, personalised touch.”
