12kg San Franciscan SF-25 Used Coffee Roaster with Cyclone/Afterburner Combo

2018 — Excellent Condition!


If there were a "Classic Beauty" award in the roasting world, San Franciscan Roasters would win it. There's just something about their design that oozes timeless elegance and sophistication that stand the test of time. When you pair this with their durable reliability, it's easy to understand why they're a favorite among serious roasters.

Whenever we list a San Franciscan, like this 2018 SF-25 used coffee roaster with cyclone/afterburner combo, we know we've got something special for just the right buyer—especially when it's in such excellent condition as this one is in. 

The story: This roaster was purchased new in 2018 and was in continuous operation, running full-time for five days a week, producing 10-20 batches per day until 2021. The owner then upgraded to a larger Diedrich roaster, moving this one to backup status for a break. It is currently installed and functioning great, but with the addition of a Kestrel roaster, the owner is streamlining their equipment and offering this one for sale.

After a well-deserved rest, this reliable roaster is now available for a new home and ready to resume its roasting duties on the front lines of your shop.

This gem is ready to take on what it was built for! 25 lb. output per roast - 100 lbs. per hour (based on profile). With a matched afterburner, it's also ready to handle those air quality control restrictions.

Brand new, this San Franciscan roaster and afterburner combo set reportedly sells for $65,900 plus tax and crating, an estimated total of over $72,000. Prices are reported to be going up, so steal this one now!

This San Franciscan SF-25 coffee roaster set comes with the typical San Franciscan treats: variable fan speed control and Cropster/Artisan roast profile output.

It is powered by 220v and fueled by natural gas. If propane is required, conversion kits are available directly from San Franciscan Roasters. It's ready for immediate crating and freighting to your shop.

CEPros requires crating companies to take photos of the equipment crating that are reviewed and approved by us before freight is scheduled.
This assures a safe equipment transport.

Once the crating photos have been approved, CEPros notifies the buyer the equipment is ready to ship and confirms the delivery address and buyer's schedule.
