The coffee we have as our daily beverage did not come to us directly from the farms. Instead, it involves a long process, from collecting the coffee beans from the farm to washing and drying them, either manually or with the help of different machines.

After that, the dried coffee beans are ready to roast, enhancing the aroma and flavor. Coffee beans are mostly roasted in large factories, but small-scale businesses that involve home and coffee shops are also evolving.

Fresh Roast SR800: Detailed Specification

Design And Construction

SR800 is made up of glass, silicon, and some stainless steel. The Base Unit of the equipment has a heater and a fan that helps blow hot air upward to the roasting chamber that is pricked from the downward side so that the air comes from the bottom, thus aiding the device in roasting the coffee beans more quickly and easily.

 On the other side, there is a lid of the apparatus that consists of two parts, one the top that has a screen that prevents the unwanted husk of the coffee beans from spreading all over the sides while roasting. Beneath this, a chaff collector segment should remain empty all the time to collect the unwanted material. 

These two parts are attached with the help of two spikes. These spikes can be pushed together to cover the upper lid with the lower part of the lid at the side of the top. It is best to use a handle that can hold the upper and lower part of the lid together. The fully attached lid then rests on the top of the roasting chamber with the help of little spikes that can be attached on either side of the appliance to give it proper support while attaching. 

Mainly it involves a roasting chamber like a coffee mug with a lock, so it does not cause any mess while rotating. Then below that is a chaff collector that connects to the cap of the appliance, which is nicely attached at the top of the base unit.

And it runs at 15 amperes at the highest setup. Most of the users use only 20-ampere current to operate this roast and did not use any other appliance to that socket. This is the mistake that most users make and uses only 20 amperes, mainly to run this device. They think a proper power supply is not given to the apparatus which leads to the device’s heating.

To initiate the appliance user needs to click the on/off button and then click on the function knob and push it to convert the setting to the fan speed; it provides the cool air to the central unit that has a heater in it, and this air helps to cool down the appliance when it gets heated while on next press it changes the setting to the power option, user can adjust it according to their convenience.

The user increases the power which means it increases the heat of the appliance and if not too much heat is needed that lower down the temperature of the device by pressing the on off butter.

When the user presses the off button then the electric power from the main unit gets cut off and the apparatus gets turned off with no heating at all. Thus it automatically turns cool after the power gets off from the main power supply.
