The Makeup of a San Fran Roaster: Quality Materials for the Finest Roast

Posted by Maria Gomez

Tue, Aug, 27, 2019 @ 09:08 AM

The San Franciscan Roaster is a carefully constructed machine made for the purpose of roasting. As any specialty coffee aficionado is aware, roasting is an art as well as a science; this means that any alteration to the material, composition, and other variables will affect the process and the roastmaster’s ability to control or define the final roast. The makeup of our machines enhances the ability for unique roasts, which have a big impact on the final cup. It’s why our carefully crafted design has considered the architecture, the materials, and unique characteristics —such as the thickness of the drum—to create a stable thermal platform and the perfect conditions for a consistent, premium, and one-of-a-kind roast.

Purple Door Coffee has helped homeless youth transition from life on the streets to meaningful employment via job training at their coffee shop and—more recently—in their roasting operation. Their name comes from a central belief within their mission; the color purple, they write, is often associated with royalty, but—as a faith-based organization— they believe everyone is royalty, as the true king lives inside us all, and we thus possess innate value worthy of opportunity, love, and kindness. His door is always open. Hence, the name Purple Door Coffee.

Fundamentally, the coffee industry relies on experimentation to improve its techniques and processes. Coffee roasting is the primary example of this. From the transfer of heat to the amount of time set at one specific temperature and then there’s the desire to achieve a specific hue, roasting is all about the art of experimentation.
