    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.

    Best roaster ever, 11.18.2017

    I've gone through several FreshRoasts, even a HotTop I paid way too much money for that failed after about 13 months (with no help from the customer service people). Of all of them, the Behmor 1600 is the best. It's now 10 years old, and still works great. I like the programmability, the excellent design catches nearly all the chaff in an easy and convenient way to dispose of. While it doesn't really roast 1lb batches beyond about 10 or 20 seconds into second crack, you can get darker roasts with a 1/4lb or 1/2lb batch. Mine came with both the fine mesh drum and the larger mesh- I use the fine mesh nearly all the time. The closure latch is working fine, no wear to speak of after thousands of batches. I was about to consider buying another one tonight after we had a power failure in the middle of a batch, and I got Error 4 (something about a cooling fan). I thought the thing was damaged from the power coming back on. Nope. I unplugged it, let it cool down, plugged it back in and it's going great again. I don't really take care of this either- hardly ever clean it, it spends all of its time in the garage here in Michigan, even winters. I can't kill it. I love this machine.

    Still thrilled after one year, 12.19.2015

    As I was roasting today I spent some time reminiscing back to December 2014 when I decided to buy my husband a coffee roaster for Christmas. It was stressful trying to decide which machine to buy within my limited budget, but I have not regretted my final decision even once. After using the Behmor 1600 for 2-3 roasts each week we have become true coffee snobs and know that we make better tasting coffee than many fine restaurants and hotels. The roasting cycle lasts about 16 minutes and consistently performs as advertised with no problems. We knew nothing about coffee roasters when we started and were able to master the process within 4 or 5 roasts. I highly recommend the Behmor 1600 for novices!

    I have had this roaster for 6 or 7 years. (when I bought it, it cost me 200.00 dollars!) I use it at least twice a month. I have never had to have it serviced and it has never needed repair of any kind. Even the heating elements work like day one. It is dead quiet as a toaster oven. Only two drawbacks that I feel a need to mention (they do not matter to me personally) If you like a dark roast you will only be able to roast 8 ounces at a time and at a dark roast setting, past second crack, it will smoke. The darker the roast the more smoke. I roast my coffee outside. +
