Everything you need to get started air roasting, this kit includes a FreshRoast SR500, an 8lb Green Coffee Sampler, ten 1/4 pound valve bags for storing your roasted coffee and a Sweet Maria's Roast Log for recording your roasts.
This kit includes:
*roast log is complimentary in this kit, valve bags are discounted* 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. Every roaster we sell ships with a tip sheet.
