San Franciscan’s SF1 Sample Roaster

This is the Cutest, Front-of-Shop Coffee Roaster You’ll Ever Find!

And it’s ready to ship – RIGHT NOW!

Here’s THE sweetheart of Sample Coffee Roasters – the San Franciscan SF1. Not only adorable but made by one of America’s premier coffee roaster manufacturers. And this little jewel is a miniature of its brothers, the SF6 & SF25 – same quality, same look!
Purchased by the original owner direct from SF in 2012, this machine’s use has only been for sampling. The run average was 20 roasts every 3 months, or 80 roasts a year over the 9 years of use.


No longer needed in course of business so it’s being offered for sale. It’s decommissioned and waiting to be crated up and shipped to you!
This one does NOT have the data logging feature but has been told it’s available direct from San Franciscan for a few hundred dollars.
The SF1 is able to roast 8 oz. (200g) to 1.3 lbs. (590g) of green coffee per batch with up to three roasts per hour. This roaster gives you a maximum roast capacity of 4 lbs per hour.
Currently has propane burners (can be swapped to natural gas w/ a kit from San Franciscan). It also has 2 temp probes – Environmental Temp/inside the chamber (ET), & Bean Temp (BT).
Comes with a matching connected chaff collector, all secured to a beautiful hardwood custom base.
