Coffee roasting can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. But one element seems to stand out: If your equipment does not allow you to control the variables at play and then repeat them, you’re fighting an uphill battle.

That’s why at Run Rabbit Run Coffee Roastery we roast on a Genio 6kg roaster. One of only two roasters currently available globally that has variable speed drives on both fan and drum speeds, the Genio comes with bespoke software that ensures graphic realtime tracking of every critical element in the roasting process. It has all the bells and whistles any roaster can ask for, but what is really cool is that it’s manufactured in South Africa.

As a style, we prefer to keep things to medium roasts and sometimes a little lighter than that. I don’t dislike all roast flavours, especially in milk-based espresso drinks, but when a bean has something special about it you don’t what to mask it with roast flavours.
