05/13/19 – Talking with Tim and Sam today, they were thinking a good chance of seeing the roasters by 05/24/19, a little bit earlier than anticipated. They should have them by this Wednesday in UT and would try and turn they around quickly.
Pre-Order Shipping By The End of May. We finally got our prototype SR 540 – a good step forward on the most popular home coffee roaster. Easy to use, roasts a pinch more coffee and is more versatile than the 500. The exact landing date is still up in the air a little but looks like the end of the month is quite possible.
We will get 80 on the first round, you can guarantee yourself one with this pre-order. With the 500 already being out of stock most places, these may go quickly.
We are working on the content and videos, will get more information up as soon as possible but some of the features and changes are highlighted below.
The SR540 is the newest addition to the SR family of coffee roasters.
Roast capacity is 4 scoops, 120 grams. It has an improved control board. All adjustments are made with pushing the knob and turning to adjust the heat, fan, and time.
It also features a real-time air temperature read out. A quick turn of the knob to the right will display current temperature.
There are now 9 levels of heat adjustment compared to having a Low, Medium, and High adjustment.
The fan also has a wider range of adjustment. The chaff basket and top lid from earlier SR roasters will not fit on the new SR540. The roasting chamber is a much larger diameter.
Users are also able to change the default start settings.
