The Fresh Roast SR800 Coffee Bean Roaster is the newest addition to the SR Series of green coffee roasters.   Our customers wanted an affordable 1/2 pound roaster and the new SR800 is the answer. With a roast capacity of 8oz./ 226 Grams of wet-processed beans.  For best results with dry processed beans reduce the roasting amount to 6oz/ 170 Grams. Dry processed beans create more chaff than wet-processed.

The SR800 roaster features a new heavy-duty high capacity fan and heater.  It has an improved control board. All adjustments are made with pushing the knob and turning to adjust the heat, fan, and time. It also features a real-time temperature readout. A quick turn of the knob to the right will display the current temperature. There are now 9 levels of heat adjustment compared to having a Low, Medium, and High adjustment. The fan also has a wider range of adjustment.

The chaff basket and top lid from earlier SR roasters will not fit on the new SR800 or SR540. The roasting chamber is a much larger diameter. Users are also able to change the default start settings.

The SR800 can roast a minimum of 4oz of beans.

It is highly recommended that when roasting multiple batches of beans to let the roaster cool for 20-30 minutes in between roasts. The Fresh Roast SR800 Coffee Bean Roaster will give you unlimited possibilities for formulating your own blends from our extensive selection of the finest quality green beans. And your Fresh Roast SR800 Coffee Bean Roaster will roast coffee for any type of coffee maker, including espresso machines. This machine carries a manufacturer’s one-year limited warranty.

The SR800 is not certified to be sold or shipped into Canada at this time.

    Hello,

    My partner and I are just getting into coffee culture. If we wanted to start with small batch roasting (1 lb at a time) what would you recommend for a roaster? We’ve been looking at the Behmer 1600 as we like that we don’t need a separate gas burner but I heard it was just “ok.” Would you provide some guidance when you have a moment? Thank you for your time!!

      Hi Kate,

      We’re so happy yo are exploring home roasting! We carry several roasters and starter kits that you’ve probably already seen, but here’s the link just in case: https://u-roast-em.com/products/roasters-starter-kits-accessories/

      Very briefly, most folks get into home roasting to save money. You can buy much higher quality unroasted green beans for less money, and roast them yourself. But once you taste truly fresh roasted coffee, you’ll be hooked. There is a bit of science behind this: Once roasted, coffee beans give off carbon dioxide, and the microscopic layer of this gas wraps around each bean and keeps in the flavors. After about 3-4 weeks, even in a sealed container, this protective layer dissipates and the beans start to lose flavor – they taste a little stale.

      So most home roasters try to roast in small batches that can be consumed in a week or two to retain the most flavors and taste. Even Decaf beans when fresh roasted taste very flavorful.

      So we try to encourage home roasters to keep the batches small – 1/2 pound or less and get the most bang for the green bean buck.

      Hope that helps. Feel free to email or call us anytime if you’d like to chat more – we love to help people get started n this hobby. We’re in the office T/W 1-5 pm and Th/F 9-1 pm. But feel free to text us anytime and we’ll call you right back.

    Does NESCO have any plans to bring back their affordable PRO home roaster…that can be used inside the home ?

    • Martin Russo says:

      Hi Tom,

      Thanks for the question! We’ve never carried NESCO products, but I contacted them today to get some insight. I’ll let you know if/when I hear back.

      All of the roasters we offer are designed for inside the home use with appropriate ventilation. In practical terms, if you have an outside venting stove hood you’ll probably have no problem. In our own home we either place the roaster by a window with a fan, or roast in the basement with a DIY outside vent, or on our deck. Our son loves to roast on his condo deck near downtown Minneapolis. In the wintertime he just starts the roaster and keeps an eye on it through the patio door. He says the roast profile is the same even in subzero weather. I have a friend who roasts under the vent in his bathroom 🙂 Another customer sent us a video of roasting with a hot air gun in a metal dog dish using the gun tip to stir the beans during the roast. Ingenious!

      All of us in the home roasting community figure out something that works for our particular situation so we can save money, have fun, and enjoy all the benefits of fresh roasted high quality coffee. Here’s an example of a detailed roasting process one of our customers shared with us.

      Our customer and home-roaster extraordinaire Bruce R. turned us onto this fantastic bean, and he was kind enough to share his roast process with us, and now with all of you:

      “Once I got the beans up to temperature (320-340C) I kept them within that range for 5 minutes before raising the temperature to just below 400F and held it there until first crack plus 2:30 minutes. I get rapid cooldown by removing the roasting cage (with leather gloves or oven pads) before auto-cooldown cycle starts, and shake it up and down in front of a floor fan on high. (Chaf blows out the garage door…) Then I place a steamer tray (the kind with lots of holes) in front of the fan and slowly pour the beans out so any remaining chaf is blow away from the beans. The floor fan cools the beans within a couple of minutes.”

      We hope you enjoy this bean, and Bruce’s insights. If you discover other roasting nuances, feel free to share in the comments below.

      I’ll update this post as soon as I hear back from Nesco. Tom, thanks again for the inquiry!
