Why roast your own gourmet coffee at home? For freshness, the fascination of the process, and to save money. Roasted coffee starts to lose its volatile aromatic oils 3 days after roasting. Even when packed in barrier packaging, fresh roasted coffee is a perishable product, and you never know how old roast coffee is when you buy it in a store. Besides freshness, roasting your own specialty coffee saves money. Quality green beans sell for about half the price of already roasted specialty coffee. Home roasting is easy, fun, and involving. It takes about 10 minutes from start to finish.
The Fresh Roast SR800 is an 8 ounce version of the Fresh Roast SR540, so you can roast enough coffee for 40 cups in one batch with wet processed beans. With dry processed beans, which produce more chaff, it can roast 6 ounces per run. The roast time can be extended by pressing the up buttons, shortened by pressing the down buttons, and ended by pressing the cool button, which starts a 4 minute cooling cycle. In addition, a fan speed control knob and 9 heat level adjustments are also available, valuable tools for the advanced roaster who wants to tailor their roast to perfection. It is 15" tall, and 8" wide.
Voltage: You must have 15 amps available at the plug where you plug in your Fresh roast SR800 for it to do a good job. It burns 1600 watts when running, and if you have an older house with only a 15 am circuit, you need to make sure nothing else is on the circuit when the Fresh Roast is running. If you plug it into a 15 amp circuit that also has other appliances drawing from it, you coffee will not roast. Of course, this is less of a problem in newer houses with 20amp circuits, as even if a small appliance is plugged in and running, you still will probably have 15 amps to draw from and run the roaster. You will know if you do not have 15 amps available if the roaster runs but does not get the beans very dark. Try switching to another outlet (on another circuit) to test this.
This machine is simple and works well. A two year manufacturers warranty is included.
