The Fresh Roast is a good choice for folks who want to get started with a machine that controls the heat, length of roast and it agitates the beans for you.

The Fresh Roast is easy to use, quiet, quick and a great value. It's the ideal roaster for a 1-person coffee drinking household (okay, there's enough for two folks).  If you are new to roasting, this is a great place to start, and if you move up to a larger machine, people have found the Fresh Roast to be a great back-up machine. The roast time is about 7 minutes for a Full City (medium-dark) roast, with a 3 minute cool-down cycle.  The Fresh Roast SR 500 has a 1/2 cup capacity, but for best agitation we prefer to use less, more like 1/3 cup (90 grams). Here's Tom's thoughts on how to best use the roaster on the details page.

If you don't have a coffee grinder, home roasting your coffee means you will need one, so we offer the option of a Hario Slim Mill, a great ergonomic ceramic burr mill that is great for home use and travel.
