Coffee lovers may have different opinions on what makes a perfect cup of joe, but if there is one thing all coffee drinkers agree on, it’s that fresher always tastes better. Unfortunately, most professional coffee roasters are way too bulky for home use, and controlling the roasting temperature can also be tricky for a layperson. With the Sandbox Smart R2 Coffee Roaster, that might be about to change.
Sandbox Smart R2 Takes The Cup
In December 2021, the R2 was presented at the Coffee & Chocolate Expo in Saudi Arabia where it got some amazing feedback from the audience. Now, it is back with updated features that promise to truly elevate your coffee drinking game.
We know that most coffee roasters on the market have tricky, hard-to-adjust settings, not to mention they’re messy to use no matter how careful you are. Well, this handy device boasts some innovative features that might help even a complete beginner roast his beans to perfection.
- Drum rotation: 90 rpm
- Voltage: AC 110V/22V
- Power: 900 W
- Weight: 26.5 lbs
With a maximum capacity of 19.5 oz or up to 550 g per batch, this cool kitchen gadget is perfect for families. Or, you know, a hard-core coffee addict. It uses a quartz heating tube and detachable drum for even roasting and achieving that excellent café-like flavor. Equally important, it promises easy cleaning thanks to a chaff collector and a coffee brush to sweep it clean. The patented design makes pouring in and releasing the beans very easy. The insulation keeps the surface cool, ensuring that the device does not overheat during operation and burn you. The smoke extractor reduces the smoke, helping keep your home clean and fresh smelling. And the low noise operation means you won’t wake up your whole family and neighborhood in the morning.
The Sandbox Smart App lets you easily operate your coffee roaster. With one swipe, you can adjust the roasting time, heat temperature, fan power, and drum speed. The App will alert you when your beans are ready for the first crack. You can also save your favorite roast settings as a profile on the Sandbox Smart App, so you can always get that perfect cup of coffee hassle-free.
The fact that this roaster comes with some very handy accessories, like a smoke extractor, cooling tray, and manual coffee grinder is fantastic. Given out slight obsession with all things coffee, this smart kitchen gadget is definitely getting a thumbs up.
