Have I-Roast for years now, and it is time to upgrade.
Would like to your expert opinions on HotPot and Gene Cafe.

TIA

The Gene is part fluid air, so the beans may have a similar taste to those
produced on your I-Roar. However, the Hottop has been established a lot
longer and may be a better bet.
Here's a link to about 90 posts on HT versus GC. http://tinyurl.com/owmna

I own both the Gene and the HotTop. I am not alone in having the
opinion that the HotTop roasts a more flavorful batch of coffee, but
the Gene is easier to clean, and has more flexibility in controlling
roast profiles.

not a clue about the gene cafe, but own the hottop, and like it very
much.
of course, it's worth making sure your line voltage is very constant
and
stable, otherwise invest in a variac also.

makes sense for any electric roaster
