Fresh Roast SR540 Review And Roast

I am doing the Fresh Roast SR540 review and roast with this popular home coffee roaster. This hot air coffee roaster is a popular choice for the beginner and seasoned home coffee roaster. In this video I discuss the features of the SR540, how to control the roaster and even do my very first roast as I discuss basic roasting concepts. If you have never roasted coffee before, this video will give you enough information where you can buy this roaster and have a successful roast.

This roaster is available from several coffee roasting retailers or you can find it here using this affiliate Amazon link: https://amzn.to/3FYUA1Q

I roast coffee on my Mill City 500 gram commercial coffee roaster every week. I also use a Behmor , Hive, Fresh Roast, The Popper and a hot air popcorn popper to roast some great coffee. Join me as we roast, brew and cup coffee at home.

Do you roast coffee at home? Do you craft single serve coffee and if so, what brewing method do you like? Please share your comments and be sure to like this video!
