The act of building something by hand is often seen as the road less traveled, and it’s easy to see why. Companies from all around the world make use of automated machines to build their products. Machines building more machines at incredibly fast speeds. They churn out hundreds (if not thousands) of products per week. Cars, refrigerators, computers, and almost everything in our modern world is built by machines. Of course, we’ve yet to reach a moment in time where everything is completely automated. Hard working individuals still work at most of these manufacturing plants but their roles have greatly diminished. Building products by hand can be seen as old-fashioned or outdated but nothing truly compares to a product that was built by hand. Our roasters, for instance, are each designed and built with the artisan roaster in mind. Since the San Franciscan Roaster Company is made up of artisan roasters and creatives with vast experience in the industry, we know exactly what should go in a coffee roaster.
