Our one-pound/500-gram roaster offers the same quality instrumentation as the larger San Franciscan roasters in a smaller package. Roasting time is 10-15 minutes, depending on roast-master preference. Works excellently as a training roaster or for profiling and roasting specialty coffees.
One of our most popular roasters, the SF-6 is perfect for coffee houses and cafes alike. Its platform allows roastmasters to roast from 2 pounds (1 kg) to 6 pounds (3 kg) per batch. Robust and attractive, the SF-6 has garnered international acclaim as one of the best small-batch drum coffee roasters on the market.
As the newest addition to the San Franciscan family, the SF-10 offers larger roasting capabilities for those who strive to grow their production yield. Best of all, the SF-10 generally falls beneath the size requirements set forth by local municipalities that require permits for larger roasters. With the SF-10, you can increase your output without having to worry about acquiring specialized permits!
The SF-25 may very well be our most legendary roaster. Roasting between 6 to 25 pounds (3 - 12 kg) of green coffee per batch, the SF-25 boasts a maximum roast capacity of 100 pounds per hour (48 kg/hour). The SF-25 can run on either natural gas or propane and, in order to boost efficiency, it’s outfitted with an afterburner to comply with air quality control mandates.
Although it’s our largest coffee roaster, the SF-75 is also one of the quietest in the world. It features independent, 3-phase motors with variable speed capability controls on drum drive and hot air for precise control over conductive/convective heat transfer. As a continuous batch roaster, the SF-75 can roast and cool at the same time. This allows for optimal roast production yield. In fact, the SF-75 can complete up to four roasts per hour, totaling 300 pounds or 136 kilograms!
That’s one of the many reasons why our roasters are known the world over! Our roasters are also scalable, using the same components and general design. For instance, if you train on the SF-1, you’ll be able to transfer those skills over to the SF-75!
We designed our roasters this way in order to produce a machine that’s as useful as it is beautiful. Our roasters include highly responsive temperature probes to measure bean and environmental temperatures. They are also compatible with most coffee data-logging technology. This makes compiling information a breeze so you can produce the perfect roast, every single time.
As such, we can customize your roaster to fit your exact needs and specifications. Our machines are truly one-of-a-kind and are built to last a lifetime.
Our commercial coffee roasters are built for artisan coffee roasters and boutique coffee shops across the world. Whether you sell coffee by the pound at the local farmers market or you own a handful of local coffee shops in town, there’s a San Franciscan Roaster that will perfectly suit your needs.
We offer excellent financing options and are able to ship our machines all over the world. Once you’ve purchased a roaster from us, you’ll receive a 1-year limited warranty and lifetime support through phone or email.
