Fresh Roast Coffee Roasters was founded in 1995 by Tim Skaling. The company started when Skaling's brother, a commercial coffee roaster, started sending fresh roasted coffee to the west coast. Skaling realized that after a few days, the coffee's quality would start to decline. With his brother's suggestions and by modifying a hot air popcorn popper, Skaling was able to create the first Fresh Roast Coffee Roaster.
The Fresh Roast Coffee Roaster is a simple and efficient way to roast your own coffee beans. The roaster can hold up to one-half pound of coffee beans and roast them in about 10 minutes. The roaster has a simple design with a clear roasting chamber so you can watch the beans as they roast.
