The New Fresh Roast SR700: $259
Use the included disc or download the application to your PC and start creating roasting curves you can save, copy, and change. The SR700 works manually too, so you don't need a computer all the time.
The Fresh Roast SR700 has three temperature settings. that can be adjusted any time during the roasting process.
High temp. = 490 degrees - 1500 watts
Medium temp. = 455 degrees
Low temp. = 390 degrees
The Fan Speed Control knob allows the finest tuning of the roast. Also computer controlled or manual. The Fan Speed Control allows adjustments of + or - 10%.
So- Starting the roast, the beans are at their heaviest, the fan speed can be turned up to keep the beans fluid and give an even roast. Then, as the beans become lighter, the fan speed can be turned down. The slower the fan, the hotter the roast. But be aware that a lower fan speed will also not loft the beans as well, so you may want to play with beans volume a bit as well. The combinations can be endless.
You'll find that a faster roast will give you a lot more snappiness in the cup. You'll also find first and second crack (see roasting 101) fall closer together, so listen for that. Faster roast = brighter cup. A slower roast will help to draw out body. If all goes well you'll have adjusted your roaster to exactly the way you like it.
Similar to the SR300 and the SR500, the SR700 roasts about 5 ounces at a time. That can depend somewhat on the power supply and the beans themselves. In practice you'll find that you can get away with roasting a bit more or a bit less depending on your own conditions. An extension cord for instance is not recommended because it can reduce the power supply. Nor is roasting outside where the machine will have to heat up cold air.
Roasting coffee can produce some smoke and that depends on the amount you're roasting and how dark. If you have a stove top vent that's usually enough. But if you like especially dark roasts you might choose to roast less. You won't see a lot of smoke until you get to a darker roast.
The FreshRoast line of roasters are our favorites. There's full visibility of the beans, smoke control is easy to deal with due to the smaller size, both those points can be a big advantage. Plus the price is right for all that they do. By roasting 2-3 batches you've produced as much as you would need if you were creating house blends or roasting for espresso. Each model of FreshRoast roaster have always been a reliable and cost effective way to roast coffee at home. Please Note: The standard warranty on glass chambers is 6 months. (Hint
, allow 15 minutes between roasts for the longest life of your chamber!) The standard warranty on the blower base is one year.
