Watch this brilliant video by the North-West University featuring Genio’s owner & Puk Alumni student, Neil Maree, discussing the rise of Genio’s coffee roaster manufacturing in South Africa. The clip also features Francois Vorster, owner of Decadent & Common Ground Coffees, a big fan of our roasting equipment.
One of the biggest advancements in modern roasting techniques is that of roasting times. I am particularly referring to a recent Cropster article showcasing some of the winning roast profiles of the 2015 World Coffee Roasting Competition (WCRC) held in Gotenburg, Sweden.
“The Genio roaster is so sturdy and well designed. It is simple to use and gives consistent results every time we use it. The support and encouragement from Neil and his team add to the great Genio experience. Having a roaster that was manufactured on our doorstep was a big motivating factor for us…” Linda & Keith Roberts, Owners at Roberts Roastery
“My Genio Mezzo coffee roaster operates like a military fighter jet, remarkable performance, amazing control and handling characteristics, maneuverable, user-friendly with state of the art technology, but still a hands on machine, offering you the ability to sense what is happening with the coffee.”
Get ready for a new type of barista challenge, the 30 Second Challenge. Coming this February 2015 watch art and skill collide when 2014’s Speciality Coffee Association of Southern Africa’s Barista Champion and 2015 World Barista Championship contender Ishan Natalie is put to the test.
It’s always exciting when you get the opportunity to be on television, but when you get the opportunity to be on TV and appear in a commercial, well that’s just priceless…

We love it when a plan comes together. Especially when the mission is to travel to three different countries in a week. Genio Roasters travelled to Austria, Germany and England in November.
