San Franciscan roasters offer a variety of benefits that competitors' machines cannot including:
We intentionally design our roasters with a single-wall drum with calculated drum wall thickness. This provides direct heat to optimize versatility in terms of conductive and convective heat transfer while roasting. We believe the single wall drums offer a greater versatility than stainless steel, cast iron, or double wall drums.
Standard SF roasters come in 'cast-iron black'. We will powder-coat roasters with any single-coat application, and multi-coat applications are available at an additional cost. Plates and fillings come standard in a solid-brass finish, although nickel and painted options are available. Personalized metal logos can be added as well. For more information, please see our personalization page.
Each San Franciscan roaster is covered by a one-year limited warranty. Additionally, all of our roasters come with guaranteed personal support for the life of the roaster. While it is rare that SFR machines have problems, we are always here to troubleshoot and answer questions!
Training is provided for free with the purchase of each roaster. Our training is available at our factory in Carson City, Nevada.
