Fresh Roast SR500


Sold out. More stock expected soon

The Fresh Roast SR 500 is a new and improved version of the Fresh Roast Plus 8, and a more powerful alternative to the new Fresh Roast SR 300.

Offering the same roast capacity (4 scoops, 120 g) as the Fresh Roast SR 300 (twice that of the old Plus 8), the SR 500 features three temperature settings for easy adjustment at any time during the roasting process: 490 degrees (high), 455 degrees (medium) and 390 degrees (low).

Fan Speed Control allows for fine tuning of the roast and adjustments of + or - 10%. Beans are their heaviest at the start of any roast, with fan speed control, beans can be kept fluid to ensure an even result. As beans become lighter, lowering the fan speed will protect beans from chipping.

As an added bonus: the unit's transparent roasting chamber affords a front-row view of coffee as it roasts. Learn a lot from just looking! Versatile, simple to use with results you can rely on, the Fresh Roast SR 500 is a great deal more for a great deal less.

A compact footprint allows for easy storage. Parts are readily available.

Important: If the unit remains plugged into an outlet for a long period of time or is not switched to the OFF position after the COOL mode has finished, the machine will go to the "Sleep Mode". The machine will not operate. If this happens, switch to the Off position, unplug and wait 10 minutes. This will reset the unit, thus making it ready to roast again.

Dimensions:8 inch (20.32 cm) diameter x 12.3 inch (31.24 cm); weight: 4.45 lb (2.02Kg)
