Complete Cleaning Procedure
Absolutely ! Our Sandbox Smart APP had coming with official profile (Light/Medium/Dark) which you can finish roasting in a simple click.
Sandbox Smart R1 Roaster is great to keep the original flavor of coffee bean from different region. You can simply adjust APP setting to gets the flavor you like and enjoy, share the roasting experience with your friends and family.
After roasting, a 100g of green bean will make about 85-88g of roasted bean. If your hand brew coffee ration is 1: 15, usually this amount can last about a week.
When coffee green beans heating up and goes through “edibility”, it will pass through first crack and second crack. When you hear three consecutive sounds in first crack, please push “First crack” button. If you set your profile to “Dark Roast” you will than hear second crack, again just push “Second crack” if you hear the cracking sound.
First crack : Mainly caused by the pressure created by the evaporation of water from the coffee beans.
Second crack : Carbon dioxide increases the pressure on the fiber cell tissue inside the coffee beans, which eventually causes the fibrous tissue to break, forming a “second crack.”
Due to different type of coffee beans and roasting setting, the color sometimes will varies. But we are confidence with the flavor that roast by our official profile.
Different type of beans have different roasting profile. Sandbox Smart APP provides 3 official roasting profile for light, medium and dark roast. You can choose the profile best for your beans, or turn to manual mode for your creativity to flow.
RoR is the growth rate of the bean temperature over time and it tells you how fast temperature of bean is changing.
For Sandbox Smart R1 Roaster, our ROR is detected in every 30 second. RoR can provide necessary temperature information and help you to plan your roasting profile.
Sandbox Smart R1 Roaster is suggest to roast with coffee green beans only.
IR heating with quartz tube.
Pre-heat time differ from 8-10 minutes, suggested pre-heat temperature is 180 C to 220 C. Normally 1st crack will happened 10 minutes after roasting started, but again, different beans will have different 1st crack time and temperature.

The 110v and 220v machine will have some voltage compensation to meet your household voltage, but basically there is no different. However, due to the difference in current power supply in various regions, there will be slight differences in firepower.
If you receive profiles of different voltages from your friend, you can adjust the profile’s voltage setting to your own preferences. It is recommended to fine-tune your 1st crack setting if you are using profile from different voltage.
The highest temperature for our machine is 220C,if APP detect BT lost connection or temperature reach over 230C during roasting,it will automatically go cooling and stopping roasting.
Please prepare a pair of insulation gloves, brush for chaff cleaning. DO NOT use plastic brushes as it will melt and contaminated the chamber, or clean chaff after system fully cool down. You will also need a electronic scale to measure green beans, and a cooling tray (with fan will be better to speed up the cooling process of roasted beans)
Please download APP from Google Play or Apple APP store. Once you log in to our APP, there will be a full instruction for the APP. You can also refer to our instruction clip on our YouTube channel.
Yes. To use it, you need to download the APP program. After logging in, use Bluetooth to connect to the machine. The machine can connect to one device at a time.
