About San Franciscan Roaster™

About the San Franciscan Roaster Company: An American Legend

The San Franciscan Roaster Company has hand-built the most beautiful, robust commercial coffee roasters in the market for many years. Based in Carson City, Nevada, our company is proud to be an American legend. But what does it take to become an American legend in the specialty coffee roasting industry? San Franciscan Roasters roast the best specialty coffee in the country.

In fact, if you taste an incredible cup of coffee somewhere, chances are you'll see a San Franciscan Roaster™ sitting nearby. It will often be the centerpiece of the coffee shop.

These beautiful, classic looking hand made roasters play a big part in the betterment of the specialty coffee community.

What drives the san Franciscan Roaster co. to continue hand-making these beautiful roasters?

In an age where most business leaders are driven by profits, why do the San Franciscan Roaster team remain steadfastly focused on quality?

  1. We're a privately owned company, not beholden to shareholders or other vested interests. We don't face pressure to cut costs, to buy cheaper components, outsource or cut corners.
  2. We're a group of first-rate coffee snobs, who adore the roasts that artisan roasters can create with our machines. We could never bring ourselves to do anything that would compromise that quality.
  3. People love working at San Franciscan Roaster. We work on a culture of humility, so there's more freedom in the flow of ideas.  People can share with each other comfortably, without fear of criticisms or reprisals. So the quality of their work stays high naturally.

“I love the quality that the machine puts out”

“We’re known around this area for quality coffee and If I didn’t have a San Franciscan, I don’t know that I would have that quality. I have roasted with other people on other roasters and I don’t believe that I could get that quality with other roasters.”

“It would work 24 hours a day if we let it”

“It’s Consistent, I love it. The machines themselves, once they get up to temperature and Robbie gets them throttled right, they’re steady. This thing would work 24 hours a day if we let it. As we grow, we will buy another San Franciscan.”
