Arc S – 200g Sample Roaster
$2,900.00 – $11,890.00
The Arc S 50-200g sample roaster brings a new level of affordability, ease-of-use and consistency to sample roasting. Having operated our own coffee quality control lab since 2007 and visited hundreds of sample roasting rooms around the world at exporters, importers and roasters, we developed the S to meet the unique needs of sample roasting. The Arc S comes in 1, 2, 3 or 4-barrel units, and the closed-drum environment allows all users across the supply chain to more to more easily calibrate around quality. Learn more about why we developed the Arc S in this interview.
Deliveries in the US and Canada ship by quick LTL trucking. Arc Roasters ship globally via air or ocean freight.

Arc S – Sample Roaster
ROASTER TYPE: Professional, gas or electric
BARRELS: Closed-barrel system. Available, in 1, 2, 3 or 4 barrel configurations, with separate heating, exhaust and cooling to achieve consistency between barrels
CAPACITY: 50-200 grams / 0.11-0.44 pounds
SUGGESTED ROAST VOLUMES: 125 grams or 200 grams
HEAT SOURCE: Gas heat / propane (LP) or LNG @ 8,000 BTUs. The majority of customers operate with LPG/propane due to much easier setup and more reliable pressure than LNG. On multiple drum units, only one propane tank is needed (gas splits to each unit).
CONTROLS: Stepless control of air-flow and heat allows for quick-response adjustments. Two dual K-type 4mm thermocouples measure exhaust/environmental temperature (ET) and bean temperature (BT).
Automatically track roasts with Artisan Roast Profiling Software or Cropster Roast software – connected by USB.
COOLING: Separate cooling fan(s). On multiple-drum units each unit has its own cooling tray fan
TIME RANGE: 7 – 12 minutes
VENTILATION: Via 3″ flexible venting duct, utilizing separate outlets from cooling fan and airflow fan. On multiple-drum units, each unit has its own exhaust fan. Exhaust lines all connect to to one shared final exhaust outlet (via a stainless steel connector with customized internal branches to reduce air friction between the units’ airflows). Or you can vent each one out separately without connecting them.
AIRFLOW METER: Air pressure gauge for measuring airflow included standard on the Arc S. On multiple-drum units, each unit has its own airflow meter and exhaust fan. Having an airflow meter on each unit allows for users to respond and make easy adjustments in airflow and gas to achieve consistency between drums (to fairly evaluate samples side by side, matching roast environments is critical when roasting multiple samples at the same time).
WEIGHT (1 barrel): 82 lbs
ELECTRICAL: 110v (100-120v) or 220v (200-240v). On multiple drum units, only one plug is needed to electrical source. Additional units plug into the main unit for power.
FOOTPRINT: 28.6 x 10 x 28.2 in (depth x w x h)
SHIPPING WEIGHT: 127 lbs
SHIPPING DIMENSIONS: 35 x 18 x 28 in (depth x w x h)
DRUM: Variable Speed (27-82 RPM), Carbon Steel (very similar to cast iron), Solid Drum, with 25w motor, 4.5 in (114mm) diameter, 3mm thickness
COOLING TRAY: 20w motor
EXHAUST FAN: 25w motor
