Behmor Connected Brewing System
The Behmor Connected Brewer was engineered so that everyone could enjoy barista style coffee at home while customizing to their brewing preferences. Joe Behm, Behmor’s founder, set out to remove the variables that cause the most common problems in coffee brewing: over or under extraction, improper temperature, and inadequate saturation.
The Behmor brewer heats the water directly in the reservoir above the coffee grounds so that no heat is lost during brewing. It also features pulsed water flow and a large showerhead to fully saturate the grounds. A pre-soak option allows the coffee to fully bloom before brewing to ensure the perfect flavors in your cup.
The mobile app allows users even more control over coffee brewing allowing them to set altitude, brewing temperature, and pre-soak time, while saving preferences to their ‘favorites’. The most recent innovation to the Connected brewer is the ability to integrate with Amazon’s Dash Replenishment Service. This enables the Behmor Connected to detect when you are low on coffee, and can automatically reorder beans before you run out.
Let’s Talk Coffee
Let Alexa be your barista. With the Amazon Echo you can speak directly to your Behmor brewing system and say things like, 'Alexa, ask Behmor to start brewing my favorite coffee.' The Brewer also works with Amazon’s Dash replenishment to automatically reorder beans when supplies begin to run low.
Easy to Use App
The free Behmor app is available for Apple (iOS 7 and higher) and Android devices (4.0 and higher) and connects via wi-fi. Simple to use screens allow you to customize your brew, save to favorites, and enjoy barista level coffee at home.
The Behmor Connected Coffee Maker is engineered differently than other coffee makers to ensure a terrific cup of coffee. The easy to use app allows for easy adjustments of brewing parameters. The oversized showerhead and pulsed water flow fully extract the coffee grounds. The result is coffee brewed to its true profile and greatest flavor - fruity, chocolaty, floral and/or bold. Enjoy coffee at home like it should be.
The Behmor Connected allows you set the brewing temperature from 190-210°. The water brewing temperature is critical for ideal coffee extraction and is recommended between 195-205°. The brewing temperature can even be calibrated to your elevation above sea level since water boils at lower temperatures the higher the elevation.
Through these efforts, Behmor Inspired has:
- Supported over 130,000 people in Guatemala alone and over 220,000 total worldwide
- Donated nearly 700 roasters to national coffee associations
- Toured worldwide and donated to associations in Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras, El Salvador, Perú, México, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia, Uganda, Philippines and India
Behmor founder Joe Behm is on a quest to bring the roaster and brewers he created back to the farmer. He regularly travels to foreign countries to offer tastings to farmers and talk about their work. His passion started after he developed his flagship product, the Behmor Coffee Roaster, when he followed the coffee bean back to its origin. He wanted to discover everything he could about it, literally getting his hands dirty with the soil it grows in.
Discovering that many farmers in Guatemala and other coffee producing countries hadn’t ever tasted the end result of their hard work, Joe partnered with Anacafé to provide Behmor Customizable Drum Coffee Roasters to community co-ops and training centers, where farmers connect and get support. Now farmers can roast and cup their own coffee. Learning how their coffee tastes better with improved soil and growing conditions ultimately means farmers can earn a better living with their product. The program has spread from there.

That said, you will want to play with the settings, temperature and soak times, to see the effect on the cup. Since we figured it was the brewer/settings at fault we went through a wide range of temperatures and bloom times and it did make an effect on the taste but since the beans were fundamentally bad we didn't really enjoy this experience (we drink a dark French roast and the bag was definitely not that but we didn't believe the beans could be that off, they were).
Once we got a new bag, things were much better and the cup is more like before. Since I got tired of the settings "game" experience with the bad bag, I haven't really played with them on the bag. The 200 and 15 seconds seems ok. I would say go to coffee forums if you want to know/discuss the effects and reasons for changing these settings.
Ok back to the brewer itself. I like the look and like metal not glass carafe. But the carafe is a small "8" cups. The carafe lid is horrible. Doesn't seal so doesn't keep coffee as hot as our previous carafe. Has a terrible pour spout design that splashes and as others have said, basically need to remove the lid and turn carafe completely upside down to get to "the last drop" which you will be doing since as mentioned this is a small 8 cups.
Heed the advice and get "tall" coffee filters otherwise wet grounds will get to the top and start to overflow. We never had that big of a mess in the basket but it was clear that normal height filters were a disaster in waiting.
So after a few months we just did experience our first leaving water behind experience. No idea why. It only went from about the 8 cup level to the 6 and said the brew was done with no other error. No mess or leaks it just didn't pour through all the water. I dumped the remaining hot water, refilled with cool water and reran a quick brew and it worked. So just some random malfunction.... the day before we are due to host an out of town guest for a week!-P
For now I'm still only docking one star because the convenience of being able to start the brew from bed when you wake up naturally is great... Alexa tell behmor to start QuickStart is a mouthful in the morning but when followed by Alexa set reminder for 13 minutes to wake me up, it is ok. I wish the Alexa reminder was automatic from the behmor brewer's notification... I'll have to setup an IFTTT script for that.
I really hope that behmor makes a better carafe, I would buy it. And then I hope they make a bigger version 10 cup.
Also the size seems daunting but IMO it is about the same size as our previous 10 cup maker... only issue is that it uses that size for only a small 8 cup capacity.
The app could use a lot of improvements, but I've commented on that elsewhere.
After one month of daily use (as of 2016-06-28):
Overall, this brewer is close to the quality of the Chemex I know and love, with the convenience of a drip system. Most of my current complaints (the reason for 4 stars instead of 5) could be alleviated with future software updates.
* Carafe - the coffee stays hot for several hours...enough time for lazy bones to wake her ass up and still get a nice hot cup of coffee. Actually, I recently brewed a second pot for some house guests, but nobody drank it. It was still lukewarm 24 hours later.
* Brew - the quality of the flavors I perceive is very similar to the Chemex - better than any drip or percolator style system I have had coffee from.
* One button - if you are happy with the configurable preset, you can easily brew with a single button push.
*Brew strength - compared with my Chemx, I cannot get as strong of a brew. I ditched the reusable filter that comes with the unit for paper #10 filters. Even if I double up the paper, the strength of the coffee does not compare. I feel like I need more coffee when I normally would not with the Chemex. I think this could be remedied if they app developers add a custom configuration for the dwell time of each "pour," and the ability to use a slower flowing filter.
*App: Device setup - Setup is not all that difficult. However, I purchased this right before moving, where we had to stay at a friends house for several weeks. It refused to connect to their wifi (I don't know who is to blame here). Then I had to reset it to my home wifi once we finally moved in. Probably not an issue for most users, but very annoying. I ended up using the preset to brew for the period it wouldn't connect to the friend's wifi (three out of the 4 previous weeks).
*App: Brewing - "Brew," "Buzz," or "Craft" - which would you instinctively choose for brewing coffee? It turns out that for replacing a pour over like the Chemex, you probably want "Craft." Okay, after you have calibrated the system (not difficult, but also not without some flaws), this is pretty easy. Set the temp, the pre-soak/delay, and set the desired boiler temp. However, I have to set these every time I want to setup or schedule a brew. Why isn't there recipes or at least a default recipe to minimize the amount of work I have to do...isn't that the main point of having such a "smart" system??? I should add that the reason I don't use "Brew" to make coffee is that it always throws back an error about the temperature not being right or some other thing.
*Filter/coffee bin - It is easy to put the bin in, but not all of the way, especially first thing in the morning when you aren't your sharpest. It's hard to visually tell when it is not fully inserted, when viewed from the front. Make sure to insert it all the way or, obviously, it will leak. I'm guessing that by design it clicks into place - so check for the click.
*Carafe - While the pot is excellent at keeping the coffee hot, the shape and/or lid design makes it hard to pour the last half of a mug or so. You have to completely invert the carafe to get that bit out, and it feels very unnatural to the wrist or to any expectation you have from a conventional glass pot.
*Top-loading for water - you don't want to put it directly under a cupboard even if it will fit. Hopefully you have some counter space where you can push it against the wall and load the water without having to move it around.
Pro or con?
*LEDs - It would be nice to be able to have the option to turn them off for aesthetics. The green color is very bright and a bit jarring. However, it doubles as a night light for the kitchen. I was concerned about the waste of electricity, but being an LED, this should be minimal...I'm guessing most of it's standby usage comes from the wi-fi. I checked with my Kill-O-Watt, and the system uses about 3 W when it is idle.
The installation and connection to the internet instructions need serious attention by Behmor. While you may believe you will be enjoying your brew in a few minutes, at least in my case, the setup took several days.....yes, days. First one arrived, and I simply could not get it to connect to the internet over my wi-fi. Called Amazon, they said "send it back, we'll send another." I did so. The replacement came the next day. But, it would not connect either! Same issue, simply would not connect. I contacted Behmor the only way I could, by email (no, no human contact for you....). They replied with an instruction sheet that should be included with the coffee maker, as there were clues to how to fix the issue....
Turns out you cannot connect the Behmor to a 5ghz WiFi, you need to use a 2.4 band. In my case that meant disabling the 5, so only the 2.4 was there for the Behmor to connect. Seemed like success, but after connectting and going thru the initial cleaning, the Behmor, while showing connection to the wifi, refused to be addressed through the app. Unplugging didn't work. For some reason, rebotting the wifi router solved the problem and guess what? The Behmor connected right up to the 5ghz wifi. Along the way I needed to reboot my Iphone a couple of times.
Did I mention it makes GREAT coffee and I love the fact I can start the brew from bed (from anywhere in the world)? I gotta assume Behmor is working the issue, so maybe it's all solved now. I hope so....I'm going to have another cup of great coffee now.
