Purchasing a Roaster is a big deal so before we ship any Roaster we give our customers a quick call. We want to make sure you have all the information about the product, its warranty, add-on items to make roasting better or easier, and answer any of your questions.

Thanks for ordering with Coffee Bean Corral we look forward to chatting with you soon.

The SR800 is the newest addition to the SR Series of green Coffee Roasters from Home Roasting Supplies. Must register your machine on https://homeroastingsupplies.com/sr800. Our customers wanted an affordable 1/2 pound roaster and the new SR800 is the answer.

With a roast capacity of 8oz./ 226 Grams of wet-processed beans. For best results with dry processed beans reduce the roasting amount to 6oz/ 170 Grams. Dry processed beans create more chaff than wet-processed. The roaster features a new heavy-duty high capacity fan and heater. 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 temperature readout. A quick turn of the knob to the right will display the 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 SR800 or SR540. The roasting chamber is a much larger diameter. Users are also able to change the default start settings. This roaster is not computer controlled. The Fresh Roast SR800 can roast a minimum of 4oz of beans. It is a manually controlled machine.

The SR800 is not certified to be sold or shipped into Canada at this time.

All roasters are 120V.

Warranty Information:

  • All coffee roasters are covered with a full 1 year *warranty on the Base Unit.
  • Top Cap, Chaff Basket, and Roasting Chamber have a 6 month warranty on manufacturer defects.

*Warranty void if used outside of North America.

I have roasted Costa Rica La Minita and it was great. Stopped at start of 2nd crack. For my first roast I was so happy it came out so good. The SR800 is a fine little roaster. I have roasted some Guatemala la Flor del cafe Antigua and it is a very good coffee. This roaster is fun to work with. I had a 20-amp electrical outlet installed so I can make sure my power will be constant. Just tried some Ethiopian and it is so sweet and fruity, amazing. You can't get better coffee without roasting it yourself.

I recently purchase the SR800 with the Extender Tube from CBC and am thrilled by it’s performance! I did one 8 ounce run with cheap beans in order to ‘burn it in’ and every roast since has been perfectly inline with the settings I’ve chosen. I live at high altitude (8,000 Feet above sea level) in a cold climate (Kitchen at 60F) but it has easily accommodated my unusual requirements. I’m not into burnt beans, so I sit and watch the process carefully in order to switch to cooling the instant my bean reach a certain color that I refer to as second stage brown, but I can also tell when they’re done by scent alone. There is a slight bit of smoke (haze) in my kitchen when I’m done, but I perceive the scent it imparts as wonderful, so I’m NOT complaining about it! Unless you’re going for commercial volumes, the SR800 (WITH the extender tube) is DEFINITELY the way to go as far as my 50 years of experience with such things is concerned! Oh, and I be remiss if I didn’t mention the fully EXCELLENT grade of service CBC provides! I’m simply incredibly picky and hard to please, with the highest technical standards left around these days, but they were all over me like flies on poop as I worked out my process, and actually FAR exceeded my expectations!

I’ve had my sr500 for 10 years with no issues. Some say they can’t get their beans to roast past light brown…My experiences/solution is to be sure to use a good power source and not use extension cords. I use a dedicated 20amp plug. Also, don’t roast in low temperatures. I’ve noticed the best roasting is when the house or outdoor temperature is above 65 F.

My first roaster and it is fantastic. Simple with many manual adjusting options. I was worried about the amount of smoke that it may produce, but under a simple hood-range there was no visible smoke. The sampler pack was also great, with scrumptious coffee, that roasted to perfection. If you are looking for best beginner to expert roaster, this is it>

I have been roasting coffee at home for about 1 1/2 years on and off. I started with a cast iron skillet then switched to a popcorn popper. I decided that we like the home roasted coffee enough that it was time to move forward and buy a roaster. I have had it for about 3 weeks now and have roasted several bags of coffee. We love it, takes some practice to get your roast the way you want, the beans are roasted evenly which is huge compared to the other methods I have used. CBC called me the same day I placed my order to cover any questions and to explain the warranty, my shipment was here in less then a week. I also purchased the extension tube which makes roasting easier. Overall I am very happy with both the service from CBC and the Roaster. Looking forward to many great cups of coffee.

CBC gets 5 stars for putting together such a great package. The base unit seems very sturdy and well built. As with many reviews I've seen on the internet the weak link is the roasting chamber. Having used other roasters that had much beefier roasting chambers all I can say is just be careful when handling. After roasting for over 15 years I know what I like. I prefer a dark roast and was concerned about getting to 2nd crack. Not a problem I just use 6 oz. instead of 8 oz. I can get to second crack even faster than my last roaster. The base unit definitely gets 5 stars.

So, I've now officially given up on roasting my own beans. Dropped the plastic lid of this new unit and it broke. I couldn't get the beans to roast beyond a very pale blonde. I used to have a Nescafe roaster. It was a lot easier to use. Stick a fork in me.

I believe this is a great entry-level, personal roster. Instructions are pretty simple and our roast are very consistent. The shipment was very quick period All in all comma we are very happy.

Quickly “graduated” from a popcorn popper. Four roasts in, this was a great purchase. First two as supplied; 3rd and 4th with extension tube. Nice control. I think this will meet my needs for some time.

I finaly stepped up from my old Nesco roaster and iam sure loving it. the only regret would be not to have bought it sooner. It's a must have if you are a serious roaster. don't think too long about it. just get it before they sell out again.

My SR800 arrived when promised by Coffee Bean Corral. I followed the recommended settings and my first roast turned out perfect. The craft roaster that I have been ordering from is going to be very disappointed since I can now roast my own at half the price. Roasting the two sample packs should come close to saving enough to pay for the roaster.

1st time roaster. After seeing many videos and reviews (and not wanting to spend thousands) I determined the SR800 was the one for me. CBC got it to me quickly, and followed up to make sure I was satisfied, and to offer tips on roasting. Disclaimer: I also purchased the extension tube, which gave me a little more flexibility (and slightly more product) in the process. Did my 1st roast last night. Easy to use. It's important to have a game plan going in, because it gets a little hectic in the heat of battle. Even with a plan, you do have to pay attention to time, temperature, 1st crack time, etc, and make tweaks along the way. My wife took notes so I could document what I did do to either adjust or copy for my next batch, based on how the brew tastes. Again, would highly getting the extension tube. All in all, a fun experience, and am looking forward to a long career of coffee roasting with it.

I ordered the SR800 and was promised it would ship when they arrive on 5/11/21. They shipped it precisely on May 11 and I received it a few days later. It was exactly as I expected and I roasted my first batch the next day. I love the way it works and am thoroughly pleased with Coffee Bean Corral.

I had to wait a few months to get this roaster, it was sold out nationwide. It was worth the wait. CBC promptly notified me when it restocked, and had it to me in a couple of days. They also threw in 2 sample packs of beans (5 lbs), a roasting log, some valved coffee bags, and packed it all nestled into a full size burlap coffee bag used as packing material. How sweet is that? Now, the roaster. Although I have roasted for a while, I am still learning the capabilities of this roaster. You can control most everything. Temperature, bean movement, and time. My first roast turned out pretty good. A little too quick I think. I'm getting it dialed in now. You can control dry time, first crack, and development stages. So many variables. I love this machine, as well as Coffee Bean Corral. Great customer service, products, and prices. I've never received a bad bean from these folks. I highly recommend them.

The Fresh Roast SR800 is my first roaster (beyond a cast iron skillet). It’s incredibly easy to use and I’m blown away by the quality of the roast. However, what was most impressive was the customer service from CBC. I don’t believe I’ve ever had such excellent support from a company. Catherine called to make sure everything was perfect and to answer any questions I had before they shipped the order. She patiently answered all of my questions and it was clear that rather than just fulfilling an order, they wanted to build a relationship for all my coffee needs in the future. Can’t wait to order from CBC again!

This is my first attempt into roasting, and so far, so good. They give you everything you need to get going, and then some...the gist card was a generous bonus. This roaster is very user-friendly and easy to use. Make sure there is plenty of ventilation and start having fun with the variety of beans that you get in the sample packs!

Roasting for about 18 months with a pan over a stove top. Roasted with my new SR800 yesterday and was impressed with the evenness of the roast. Machine was simple to get a good roast out of. There is so much control and little adjustments you can make to produce suburb results. I look forward to experimenting with this machine. Let's hope it last now.

Really nice roaster. It's my first, and I found it really easy to use and clean (watched a couple of youtube videos). It was shipped quickly and packed very well.

I meant to do 5 stars and clicked 4...oops! We love this roaster SO much! Also the Coffee Bean Corral folk are fantastic and will answer any questions you may have. I only wish the roaster was bigger but honestly, I think we drink an absurd amount of coffee anyway so it’s still perfect :)

We are roasting so many beans with this bad boy, it’s great! Coffee Bean Corral is the best, before shipping this they called me to talk about the different options and make sure I was familiar with roasting. It was SO nice!

Just moved up from popcorn popper to the SR800! Very easy to setup and learn, first batch was a perfect roast, good for anyone looking to roast 1/2 pound batch size.

I finally stepped up from a modified popper to the SR800 and am elated to be able to finely tune my roasts with the variable heat and fan speeds. It’s fast and accurate but still affords needs the pleasure of being interestingly involved in roasting process. I’m getting some better coffee in the cup than buying from commercial roasters. I joined a Face Book group that allows Fresh Roast users to compare notes, experiences, and suggestions. Very helpful! Thanks CBC, for the good machine at a good price, speedy delivery, and gift certificate.

Needed a machine to replace my old (12yr old) one that could give me a good dark roast. This one does a good job, plus handles a larger load.

Operates much easier than the 500. Still run a temperature probe through a hole in middle that I drilled out to monitor the temperature but I do like the machine

Just over two weeks in with this one and I'm loving it! I started roasting coffee when I worked at a small local coffee shop that got a 1lb fluid air bed roaster. After I moved on to other jobs with more regular schedules I started using a bread machine/heat gun to roast for a little while but it was hard to achieve consistency and it was annoying having to roast outside, especially during Southern summers! Finally decided to try a Fresh Roast, and settled on the SR800 without much trouble. Ordered it on Monday and Thursday it arrived around 7pm. 7:30pm I was wrapping up my first roast! I'd watched a couple of videos to learn how to use it, but so much of what I learned all those years ago came right back and I've been able to achieve the roast levels I'm looking for every time. Did set off the smoke detectors one time so... If you're going for Full City roasts make sure to keep that stove hood on high or roast someplace more open-air than your kitchen! Also can't complain one bit about the 5 half pound samples of beans and the $15 gift certificate they include with this machine. I mean, that's like getting a $30 discount over the list price of the roaster. Best deal I've seen around! Is the roaster perfect? No, of course not. I'd love if it had a dedicated temperature display so you don't have to swap back and forth between the fan/power setting an the temperature view. Also don't get a whole lot of bean movement with larger roasts if you drop the fan speed down any. There is a third party making aftermarket roast chambers for this which are tall and narrow--allowing for larger batches and reportedly giving better bean movement with the airflow this unit puts out. Do you need it to make some great roasts? Nope. I'm quite happy with what I've achieved so far with this.

Very capable roaster. The capacity is very nice. There are some very useful modifications that can be purchased or made to make it even better.
