The San Franciscan SF-10: 10lb/5kg Commercial Coffee Roaster

SFR-10-2024SF10: 10 lb coffee roaster/ 5kg coffee roaster

The SF10 is the newest addition to the San Franciscan Roaster lineup. It is a unique size that generally falls beneath the requirements of local municipalities requiring permits for larger roasters. At 5kg/10lb per batch, it can roast more coffee that most small batch roasters.

Like the other roasters in the San Franciscan lineup, the SF10 is lovingly hand crafted, using only American-made parts in our factory in Carson City, Nevada.

The SF10 is essentially a smaller version of our 25-pound/12-kilo roaster, the SF25. In fact, this 10lb. coffee roaster uses many of the same parts as the SF25 while being proportional and scaled. Simply put, the SF10 is an awesome roaster that will satisfy the needs of even the most meticulous roastmaster.

Roast To Your Heart’s Content

The SF10 coffee roaster's 5 kg. capacity is ideal for roasters who want to produce more than they can with a small-batch coffee roaster, but are not yet ready for an SF25.

You'll find the same meticulous artistry and craftsmanship in the SF10 as you will in our larger roasters. It also has the same roasting characteristics as the larger roasters. Since all our commercial coffee roasters are scaled proportionally, the coffee roast characteristics are easily duplicated from one size to another

As all San Franciscan roasters are built with similar components, coffee roasters can easily transition to larger machines as their business grows! This consistency between our roasters makes the upgrade path much easier. You can also trade-in your San Franciscan Roaster™ when you upgrade, as they are built to last a lifetime.

Expect the Best from the San Franciscan Roaster Company

The SF10 is probably the most robust 5 kilo coffee roaster on the market. These roasters are handmade with care and precision in our Carson City factory, by extremely talented craftsmen.

Every single piece of steel is hand-formed, cut, and precision welded by our team. The San Franciscan Roaster Company produces machines that bolster American craftsmanship through and through. If you’re ready to become part of the San Franciscan Roaster family, contact our team today!

"These roasters are extremely well made"

We purchased a 10 pound roaster for our Reserve coffees for Corvus Coffee. We've had nothing but excellent experiences both with the machine and the support! These roasters are extremely well made, and the 10 pounder has great control of airflow and gas/heat. The team at SF is always responsive to the (very few) questions or needs we've had with the machine. Probably buying more SF roasters going forward.

"I love my SF-10"

"I love my SF-10. I had roasted for 6 years at a local shop on a 25 and when I decided to take roasting into my own hands a San Franciscan was what I knew I wanted. Bill Kennedy and Chris Kenney were such a pleasure to work with. My roaster arrived during Thanksgiving and I had a few questions while setting it up with my local HVAC techs. Understandably during the Holidays these hard workers need some time off. Wouldn’t you know it I found myself talking to Bill on his personal phone while he was out of the office. Customer service like this does not exist in our world today. This is less of a review and more of a thank you. Thank you San Franciscan Roaster Company for helping me realize my potential for a career in coffee. Thank you for helping me open my doors on time and allowing me to capitalize on the holiday season. Thank you for putting your absolute all into providing me with unparalleled customer service. To anyone at San Franciscan that took part in getting my SF-10 to her home in my roastery, thank you.."
