Several years ago I thought about doing home coffee roasting, after seeing a small roaster that looked like a popcorn maker, and the green beans, at a local kitchen wares store. My wife told me I didn't need the toy, so the thought went on the back burner. Fast forward several years to December 2009. With my retirement and all that new time, I needed yet another passion. So I found the Behmor 1600 online from Roastmasters just before Christmas, and yes, it was a gift to myself. And my wife and I, haven't regretted it since. After about twenty, half-pound roasts with several green bean varieties, also from Roastmasters, the Behmor has functioned flawlessly. The latest model has many notable features, including good visibility so one can observe the coffee bean transformation process. I find this process enjoyable, including the emerging aromas. The Behmnor is a drum roaster using quartz heat lamps. The wire drum design effectively moves the beans so the resulting roast is very uniform in color and consistency. As soon as the roast cycle completes, the Behmor goes into a cooling cycle that typically takes about twelve minutes. The total time for my one-half pound, total roast and cool cycles, averages around twenty five minutes.

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.

I've owned a Behmor 1600 for a while now and I average 2 roasts every week. I did a lot of research first and read all the forums. After roasting beans on a gas grill, this unit is heaven.

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.

I received the roaster as a christmas present in 2008. I am a homebrewer, home cheesemaker, general do-it-yourselfer and roasting my own coffee was inevitable. After using this roaster, I was hooked. Since then my wife and I have bought about 2-3 lbs of pre-roasted coffee (only when i forget to roast or am on a trip and can't), we love home roasting and really have found commercial coffees to be over-roasted or under-roasted and generally lacking in flavor. Especially, OUR FLAVOR, the way WE want it. I love the size and toaster-oven style of the behmor, it really could sit on your counter (I roast on the back patio for smoke considerations). It has great controls with a great variety of roasting programs so that you can vary the temperature of the beans for different times to give the beans a different flavor. then of course, you can start cool down when you need to, to ensure you get the roast you desire. Once you find YOUR FLAVOR, you'll be hooked too.

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.
