Regular price

The SR800 is the new and improved unit from Fresh Roast. The biggest advantage of this new roaster is the upgraded chamber size that can hold up to a half pound of green coffee. The 800 also has an improved chaff collector and upgraded glass chamber, two aspects of the older model that customers often found lacking. With up to nine adjustable settings and a legitimate roast capacity, at the price point, the 800 is hard to beat. Click here for some basic operating tips.

It would probably be easy to pass along marginal grade green coffee to novices, but that's opposite of what we've done here. We have selected four high-quality green coffee beans, each with distinctly different characteristics so you can discover how doable it is to achieve impressive results at home.

Kenya - Kenya coffees are often regarded as some of the best coffees in the world. They are bright, with crisp vibrant acidity and nuances of dried fruits and cocoa.

Ethiopia - The aroma and flavors of this coffee often blow the minds of folks just starting out. These lots are noted for their distinct berry notes that present front and center. Much of this is a result from the Dry Processing of the coffee cherries at harvest.

Guatemala - These Central American coffees consistently rank on the high end. The selection we've included is suited for roasting light or dark, sporting rich chocolate and caramel notes.

Sumatra - Sumatra is one of the oldest coffee growing regions in the world. Beans from here are known for their heavy body and low acidity. This lot has a clean mouthfeel with notes of pineapple and tobacco and is a strong example of great Thai coffees.

Consistent with our design style: clean, simple.
We really, really want you to take notes on your roasts. There are so many variables in play that affect your final cup, that note-taking discipline will move your quality and consistency ahead much faster. Trust us.
The brightly-colored card in the photo is a tool. It is a reproduction of the official SCA color wheel, noting all the flavor nuances found in coffee. Use this to improve your sensory development and memory. The Lab Card also includes a coffee roast color chart. This is an approximation of the technical color spectrum developed by the fine folks at Agtron. While this only mimics their number range and colors, it is designed to help you develop some color targets and consistency as you learn.
