The Behmor has virtually foolproof automatic control of the roasting process and safety features; and manual adjustments can be made to customize the roasts, when one becomes a true roast-meister. The roaster is relatively quiet so one can easily hear the first coffee bean cracking sounds, and eventually the second crack, if one ventures in that range. Many of my roasts are taken between the first and second crack, and sometimes just before the second crack as a matter of my taste.Read more ›
When I got the unit, I was a little overwhelmed by all the different buttons/settings. I got out temperature probes and starting taking notes while playing with the unit. I actually found a temperature profile that didn't make sense to me and after contact Behmor, found out my mother board was wired incorrectly. They sent me the wiring diagram and after switching some wires, the profiles all seemed to do what I expected.
Then I started roasting coffee. I again used temperature probes to see what was happening in the bean mass. It quickly became apparent that all of those buttons are useless. There are 3 buttons for weight, 4 buttons for programs, 2 buttons for time increment, and 5 buttons for power profiles. All useless.
The unit is so underpowered, you have to use the maximum power every time. I know why they do this, so you don't catch the unit on fire, but it is still way underpowered.
Now to get good results, you need to buy your favorite coffee in bulk. You do this because each coffee has different roasting characteristics. I will buy 20 pounds of Colombian and 20 pounds Costa Rican at a time. Then after a couple of roasts from each bag, I know what to expect.
To the roast ..... always warm up the Behmor for 2 minutes before inserting the loaded drum. Then always select 1 lb for weight, program B (for 20 min), and P1 (max power). Push start.
A bit of a warning here. By making these selections you have raised you hand saying "I know what I'm doing".
You have removed all of the safeguards the unit has to offer.Read more ›
Price is great, when compared to most of the other roasters... especially automated ones (some are $900 plus). With the price of green beans about 1/2 to 1/3 what you'll pay for "charbucks" or anything else in the store, i figure I paid for the roaster in the first year easily. Ease of use is outstanding. Keeping it clean is a snap (simple green on the inside and the 1/2lb setting and start while it is empty). I don't mind the little smoke that it makes (hello, your roasting coffee!!) but I wouldn't do it indoors.
shortcomings... well, if i buy something that says i can roast 1 lb of coffee... i kind of expect to roast 1 lb of coffee. not 9 oz. and oh by the way, i have to do a 2 minute warm up (not in the directions) to get the 9 oz roasted to my desire.Read more ›
