Why roast coffee at home with the FreshRoast SR500 or SR700?

1 comment Aug 6, 2014

The answer to this question is adapted from the FreshRoast SR500 box.  I felt that it was very applicable and something that many of you might find interesting.

So why roast coffee at home?

  • Fresh and flavourful coffee, guaranteed - Commercially roasted whole bean coffee starts to lose flavour in just three days but green(unroasted) beans stay fresh for about two years.
  • Home roasting is fast and easy- The FreshRoast SR500 automatically roasts enough coffee to brew about 20 cups and does it in under ten minutes.
  • Beans are roasted to your liking - Whatever your favourite roasting style, from light cinnamon to rich Italian, the FreshRoast SR 500 lets you have complete control.
  • You will discover your creative side - Combine different bean varieties and roasting styles to create special blends for yourself, family and friends.  Custom coffee blends make thoughtful gifts.
  • More coffee choices - At Pre-Umber.ca we offer popular and exotic green coffee beans, including decaffeinated, organic, sustainable and fair trade varieties from around the world.

    I use the SR500 ATM and like it but wish to roast more at a time. Also, I would like to be able to vent better. Any ideas are welcome.
