San Franciscan's Acclaimed 3 kilo SF-6 Sweetheart Roaster!

Here's another beautiful, black-matte finish with brass highlights, San Franciscan SF6 Coffee Roaster. Perfect for home-based coffee operations, or coffee shops/cafes looking to roast in-house, and desiring to have a sexy, eye-catching coffee roaster upfront of the shop!

This One's Story. Current owner bought this roaster in 2011 direct from San Franciscan. Has enjoyed flawless roasting through out the years, about 30 batches a week. Needing more roast per batch, he's now upgrading to a SF25, staying with the San Franciscan quality brand.

Current state: This gem is still roasting, perfectly every batch. Will be ready for its new home as soon as its older brother SF25 shows up in 8 weeks.
 
It currently has natural gas burners (can be swapped to propane w/ a kit from San Franciscan). It also has 2 temp probes - Environmental Temp/inside chamber (ET), & Bean Temp (BT).

Comes with a Digital Temp control unit, matching chaff collector and table.

NOTE: The lever which directs air under the cooling tray is missing a small piece which prevents the lever from staying in position. A small piece can easily be welded back on. Has no impact on the roasting of the machine.

Remember, the SF6 is strategically designed to be below production and emission standards that prohibit in-home use. And, this specific roaster has a Farmers Market Cart Kit available from San Franciscan (not included in this sale) to easily transport! See all the details below.

San Franciscan Roaster SF-6

About San Franciscan Roasters

https://www.sanfranroaster.com/

There are many reasons why the SF6 is known as the best small-batch coffee roaster in the world. From the American-made parts to the classic design, the SF6 from the San Franciscan Roaster Company stands apart from other roasters as a robust and reliable small-batch coffee roaster for beginners and professionals alike. If you’re considering a new roaster for your coffee house, the SF6 may be exactly what you’re looking for.

#1) Hand-built with American-Made Parts

At the San Franciscan Roaster Company, they strive to build hardworking machines that far outpace the competition. In order to achieve this, they hand-build their roasters with American-made parts to precise specifications. Let’s first discuss the hand-made aspect of the SF6. They never mass produce our products. Each machine is crafted by hand by a team of expert builders and technicians. This is a meticulous, highly detailed process that produces one-of-a-kind machines. SF proudly build our machines in our Carson City, Nevada factory.

#2) A Great Size for Coffee Houses and Farmers Markets All Around the World

As a 6 lbs. (3 kg) roaster, the SF6 is a reliable machine that stands at approximately 4 feet or 1.27 meters. Including its stand, the SF6’s dimensions are 50”x 22”x 71” or 127 cm x 56cm x 181 cm. This makes the SF6 a perfectly sized roaster for coffee houses all across the United States and around the world. The SF6’s size gives coffee roasters the ability to easily transport the machine from coffee house to farmers market. Since the SF6 can work on either natural gas or propane, roastmasters have the freedom to take their roasters on the road. In fact, they offer a special farmers market kit which includes a beautiful, Amish-made hickory cart with which you can easily transport your SF6. Whether it’s in a coffee house or on the road, the SF6 is the most versatile small-batch artisan roaster available today.

#3) The Simplicity of Keeping Your Machine Clean

In order for any coffee roaster to work as efficiently as possible, it must be well maintained and cleaned on a regular basis. Keeping some machines clean is a hassle due to the difficult-to-reach components. When it comes to the SF6, however, cleaning is much easier. Every component of the SF6 is specifically chosen by our expert craftsmen. When the day is done and the time comes to clean the machine, you’ll be able to remove your SF6’s motors, pipes, and cooling tray without a hassle for easy cleaning. A well-maintained and clean roaster will produce great, reliable roasts time after time. At the San Franciscan Roaster Company, they're always thinking of ways to make roastmaster’s jobs as efficient as possible. Not only do they provide a robust, reliable machine, we also implement crucial design elements to make the entire process as streamlined as possible. This is just one of the many ways their machines outclass the competition.

#4) Easily Maintain Your Specialty Coffee Roaster

Although SF roasters are built to last, they may still require maintenance. If any component were to falter and replacement becomes a necessity, San Franciscan provides expert assistance so your SF6 will be back in working order in no time. Since the parts we use are all American-made, finding replacement components will be incredibly easy. Our team is always ready to help.

#5) Real, Durable Beauty

When you purchase a San Franciscan SF6,  you can expect a machine that’s as useful as it is beautiful. We understand that many of our roasters go on to become centerpieces for coffee houses all around the world. For this reason, SFR powder coats their roasters in order to produce a very durable finish that will catch the eye of roastmasters and coffee consumers alike. Their beautiful roasters are made with steel which provides the most durability and best heat application. Your roaster will be the perfect hard-working centerpiece for your coffee shop!
