We just got the new Fresh Roast SR300 and Fresh Roast SR500 delivered to us Friday afternoon! I will be working on a description and a video of each today and tomorrow. They should be available for checkout by Tuesday around Noon or so.
The Fresh Roast SR300 is a larger version of the Plus 8. It will roast twice the capacity of the Plus 8 with a digital time display. The maximum time to set the control is 9.9 minutes. At any point during the roast sequence you can add 6 seconds every time you tap the button. Time can be subtracted using the same method. The timer can be overridden by tapping the “Cool” button, the roaster will go into the “Cool” mode for 3 minutes. The SR300 will sell for $109.
The Fresh Roast SR500 has the same capacity ( 4 scoops , 120 gm) and features of the SR300 —plus three temperature settings that can be adjusted any time during the roasting process. High temp. = 490 degrees Medium temp. = 455 degrees Low temp. = 390 degrees A Fan Speed Control has been added that allows the finest tuning of the roast. The Fan Speed Control allows adjustments of + or – 10%. Starting the roast, the beans are at their heaviest, the fan speed can be turned up to keep the beans fluid and give an even roast. As the beans become lighter, the fan speed can be turned down and keep the beans from chipping. The SR500 will sell for $159.
