Fresh Roast SR800

The Fresh Roast SR800 is a fluid bed air roaster featuring 9 heat and fan speed adjustments, respectively, an improved glass roasting chamber for visibility, and a nifty chaff collector that makes clean up easy. If you are used to roasting on an electric popcorn popper, the Fresh Roast SR800 offers the features you are missing as well as a larger batch size - up to half a pound!

The Fresh Roast SR800 is similar to the much-loved SR540 with increased chamber volume, advanced heater, improved internal electronics, and a heavy duty fan. What does that add up to? A larger, 8 oz batch size!

There is a single knob that controls heat, fan, and time - just push the knob to toggle between parameters. A quick turn of the knob to the right will display real-time temperature readings - no need to add a thermocouple to the roast chamber! There are now 9 levels of heat adjustment compared to having a Low, Medium, and High adjustment.  We like the general design concept because it doesn't try to automate anything and allows direct user control.

The chaff collector works well and, although it doesn't have a smoke reducer, the top of the machine slows the flow of smoke so roasting under your oven's hood fan will eliminate most of the smoke. The stronger fan in the SR800 does a great job of agitating the beans and the new, wider roast chamber allows for a more even roast compared to the older SR500. Switching to "cool" in order to extend the roast is a good trick to help with roast control. 

Please note: The chaff basket from earlier SR roasters will not fit on the new SR800 because the new roast chamber is much wider in diameter.
