The SR340 coffee roaster is the newest addition to the FreshRoast line.A powerful, easy to use roaster with a short roasting time. We do most of our sample roasting with the SR roasters. These roasters are reliable and an excellent value.
With control of the fan speed and time and a little practice you will produce some great tasting and beautifully roasted coffee. Makes a great gift for a coffee aficionado. It is our most popular roaster line.
The original Fresh Roast SR 300 had a downfall of no fan speed control – which made it challenging to roast under certain conditions (low voltage, high coffee density, etc..). Tim, the inventor of the SR’s finally got the wise idea to add the variable fan speed control and introduced it in the new SR340 FreshRoast . . . bringing it right in line with the SR 500 and SR 700 for easy of use, batch size and versatility.
In our Coffee Roasting Lab, we have put the SR340 into the lineup for our sample roasting and have been producing some great roasts and love the coffee out of it. We have found the heat controls to matter very little on the SR 500 versus the SR 340 with the ability to cycle on/off the heating element at the start of the roast. Slight changes to the batch size and fan speed also act as a fine tune for temperature.
