Behmor 1600 Plus RoasterBy: Larney Gremfe;; on 18 May 2018I bought this roaster a while ago now and have only used it when I have had my coffee beans ready. I grow my own. I last roasted about 8 weeks ago and am drinking the coffee now. I love the roaster it does everything I wanted. I did find the instructions a tad difficult but persevered and went on line and watched some of the videos out there and made my own notes and am very happy with the results. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to grow their own beans and roast their own coffee. Top marks.
Behmor 1600 Plus RoasterBy: Allan Callow on 23 January 2018My Behmor arrived promptly after I had ordered it. It is a big step up from many years using a pop corn maker. The machine is relatively easy to set up. It comes with comprehensive instructions which once read are easy to follow. So far it has produced four consistent roasts for me. The beans come after roasting are all of a uniform colour and consisitent finish. I am very happy that I have made the change. Well worth the money.
Behmor RoasterBy: Larney Grenfell on 16 December 2017I bought this a month ago and am very happy. One needs to take time to get to know the procedure and I have to say I found better instructional help on Utube than in the manual supplied which was very frustrating. I grow my own coffee and now don’t have to do it in the oven or pan which was very hit amd miss. This roaster is a truly great kitchen addition. I put it near the stove with the exhaust fan on during cooking and have no trouble using it indoors. Now I understand my coffee type I do a perfect roast every time.
Great value little roaster!By: Robbie on 27 July 2017Having spent many hours reading through forums and watching video reviews, etc. online I decided the investment in this little roaster made economic sense given my bean consumption. It's a big step up from pan and popcorn popper roasting but does not give the same level of precise control as many of the gas powered roasters (they tend to have with better exhaust ventilation, more accurate/timely temperature data and quick emptying of the drum). With the Behmor, it require getting used to in order to create some great roasts. You have to learn to interpret the delay in temperature readings with how the beans smell and look. You also have to factor in an additional 45-60sec's of roasting before the cooling cycle actually starts dropping the temperature, AND even then it's a SLOW (but hands off; which is nice and easy) process to cool the beans to room temp'. I have managed to get some great roast consistency between beans of the same batch, and internal to external bean layers, using a slow ramp up to roast temp' rather than fast. The machine is limited, as all machines are in some way, but is great fun (aside from the very regular cleaning) and great value for money. My rating is based on the overall value of the purchase for a beginner to intermediate home roaster rather than a roaster vs. roaster machine comparison rating. Hope this review helps some people. Happy roasting! Ciao!
Behmor 1600 plus UK buyerBy: John Corfield on 3 June 2017Firstly uk buyers should be aware of extra tax and customs chargers. I paid an extra £106. So I have been using a Gene Cafe for the last year so this is my benchanting mark. How do they compare. Behmour has less smoke but no digital temperature. Howevet it can be programmed which is a plus. The Behmour is messy in terms of chaff. It goes everywhere. The gene is a cleaner machine to work with. I have only done four roast and already some of the small rivots have fall of the Behmor chaff box which is surprising as I thought it would be tougher than the gene. Also cooling fan is catching somewhere in the machine somtimes, not a great sound. I do feel the roasting of the beans it better and more consistent in the Behmor. Both roaster 3 stars. The supplier was very good and answered email quickly. Item arrived in good time.
