Embracing the Craft of Roasting with a San Franciscan™

Coffee roasting is an art form. As such, roastmasters need to be unencumbered to be able to produce true art.

More often than not, modern coffee roaster machines are completely automated,  with computerized assistance. The "art of the craft" has become the world’s slowest video game, with many roastmasters now sitting behind a monitor, waiting for the bars to reach a certain level on the screen.

Although data-logging technology is still incredibly useful and pertinent to the art form, it is overused. San Franciscan™ coffee roasting machines are designed to also allow roastmasters to also use their sense of smell, sight, and taste to craft the perfect roast.

We also incorporate data-logging technology into the process through third-party software, so you can log your coffee roasting escapades.

By marrying modernity with classic design, we give you the freedom to create while still maintaining consistency, using a product that will last for generations.

The Classic Design of San Franciscan Drum Roasters

San Franciscan Roasters have a legacy of classic design. Not purely for aesthetics, but also for practicality. Drum roasters are preferred by artisan coffee roasters, as they give the roastmaster complete control over all heating throughout the roast.

The drum vs air debate has been going on for decades. It has been fueled by manufacturers of different machines, with a vested interest in promoting their products. However, our experience has been that roastmasters prefer the versatility of drum roasting. They also prefer using a mix of convection, conduction and radiant heating that you can't get from an air roaster.

To get a better understanding of what our roasters are capable of, visit our headquarters in Carson City, Nevada. We offer hands-on training to those who purchase a San Franciscan Roaster™. This way, you’ll be able to learn how to use your new San Franciscan™ to the best of your abilities.

"We love their old style look mixed with good electronics"

"We have two 25lb San Franciscan roasters named Frannie and Cisco. As Roastmaster, I love roasting on these two work horses. I roast simultaneously on both of them, with no problem. We love their old style look mixed with good electronics. If maintainence is kept up, they will work well. As a good companion, we roast all our samples on our 1lb San Franciscan, keeping them harmonious with our roasting process."

Paul Allen - Roastmaster Caravan Coffee

"They've built a world class team around their world class roasters"

"The San Franciscan Coffee Roaster Co. has built a world class team around their world class roasters. Every person we have had the pleasure of working with is extremely knowledgeable in their craft and it shows in their final product. We have been using the same workhorse SF-25 for almost 30 years, so when it finally came time to purchase a new roaster we had no doubt it would be another San Franciscan. The American craftsmanship and American steel insure we will have another 30 years with our new SF-25. The pride they take in their craft shows and it allows us to take pride in ours."

"They took the roasting experience and perfected the process!"

San Franciscan Roaster Co. were so helpful and worked with us from the beginning (our first phone call with them) to our first roasting experience. They helped with deciding which roaster size would be best for our size business. We were put in contact with other coffee roasters who had purchased a San Franciscan Roaster to get feedback. We met some very awesome people who have had the San Franciscan Coffee Roaster for well over a decade and loved it!

The San Franciscan SF6 Coffee Roaster has been reliable and very easy on maintenance. Since we are in a very rural area (the mountains), they were able to guide us through standard maintenance and then some. We have been operating our SF6 Coffee Roaster now for 2 years and have not had any problems.

The roasting process with the San Franciscan is great...our coffee has had very high praise. They took the roasting experience and perfected the process!

If one day we decide to double our business we would definitely buy another San Franciscan Coffee Roaster!
