America has always celebrated the individual and the potential of every person to contribute something of unique value to the larger picture. Individualism is an upheld value in the specialty coffee culture; every vision is different and every pair of hands involved in the process is distinct, valuable, and necessary.  This idea is intrinsic to the San Franciscan Roaster Company, where we build using only American-made parts and cherish ideas of craftsmanship, artistry, and innovation. Every machine we construct is handcrafted, carefully assembled, and representative of our profound knowledge of the industry.

Specialty coffee roasting is an exciting journey to embark on whether you’re working as a part-time barista at your local coffee house or an entrepreneur who’s looking for the next challenge. The coffee roasting industry is simultaneously a global enterprise while being incredibly individualistic. In most cases, specialty coffee roasters, brands, and shops are managed by only a handful of people. And not every coffee roaster has his or her own coffee shop or coffee house. Thanks to the internet and online shopping, many coffee roasters are able to ship their product all around the world. In order for a batch of coffee beans to achieve the distinction of specialty coffee, the coffee roaster must use his or her personal skills and abilities to create something truly unique. Unlike mass-produced coffees, specialty coffee roasting boasts a personal touch that allows it to stand apart from the rest. It’s also necessary to use a specialty coffee roaster like the ones available from the San Franciscan Roaster Company. We build our products by hand to your exact specifications.
