We think the Behmor 1600 is one of the best home coffee roasters but does require one to be more attentive to the roast than the other units. Easily the best value for a roaster; it is one powerful and versatile machine but also one of the more challenging units to use. Definitely for the coffee connoisseur who will enjoy the larger batch sizes along with the ability to change up the roasting curves but doesn't mind being a little more attentive to the roaster.
The Behmor story:
What began in 1997 as a visit to a local roaster/co-op in the cloud forests of Monte Verde, Costa Rica, morphed into personal quest to create an affordable, yet user friendly, home coffee roaster that would enable anyone the means to roast their own coffee and enjoy the true meaning of fresh roasted coffee.
After eight years of research, 250 thousand miles traveled, thousands of tests roasts and countless revisions, I'm proud to bring to you the Behmor 1600.
