Walked by this store several times and the aroma of the roasted coffee forced me to enter.
Enter I did!
Within the walls of this fine establishment was a huge roaster. First of its kind that I had seen.
This beautiful looking and fantastic smelling machine is a coffee roaster. Specifically a San Franciscan Roaster.
The San Franciscan Roaster Company has hand-built the most beautiful and robust commercial coffee roasters available in the market today. Based in Carson City, Nevada, our company is proud to be an American legend. But what does it take to become an American legend in the specialty coffee roasting industry?
The unmistakably classic styling along with a stout, solid build accented with solid brass fixtures and decorative side plaques makes San Franciscan Coffee roasters stand out from the rest. Our coffee roasters provide unbridled durability and ease of maintenance which makes them the perfect investment for coffee business owners who are searching for peace of mind in a quality product.
Every San Franciscan™ is designed as a drum roaster. Drum roasting provides a higher degree of control to the roastmaster. San Franciscan™ machines are designed to allow roastmasters to use their sense of smell, sight, and eventually, taste to craft the right roast.
The name of this establishment is Isabella Imports. It was founded in 1991. In the 30 years that they have been in operation, they have roasted an estimated 624,000 lbs. of coffees from all over the world !
