Behmor's Connected Coffee Maker enables the user to bring out a coffee's true flavors via brew settings not found on any other coffee maker and controlled easily via a mobile phone app. Enjoy coffee’s amazing flavors easily and repeatable, saved and programmable for when you want to enjoy coffee. The Behmor app allows you to easily adjust the brewing temperature, pre-soak time, or select a brew profile and start brewing.

A button on the front of the brewer allows for brewing without the app based on your favorite brewing profile. In addition to custom brewing control, the Behmor Connected is engineered for optimum coffee extraction and flavor with pulsed water flow from an oversized showerhead onto a flat bottom grounds basket that will fully saturate the coffee grounds. The Behmor Connected utilizes a 1.2 liter double walled thermal carafe to maintain the coffee’s temperature. The coffee flavor and ease of settings via a mobile app will have you enjoying coffee easily at home like never before. Permanent filter included or use paper filters. 1 year warranty.
It’s hard to believe that many coffee farmers have never tasted their own beans in a cup of coffee. But it’s true. While many farmers are equipped to grow the beans, they are often not able to properly roast and brew them. Yet knowing how environmental factors affect coffee beans is essential to refining the quality of the end product—the cup.
Behmor founder Joe Behm is on a quest to bring the roaster and brewer 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. The farmers he met quickly became his friends.
Behmor Inspired has supported over 60,000 people in Guatemala alone. More than 300 Behmor Roasters have been donated to national coffee associations in Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Burundi. Joe partnered with Anacafé in Guatemala 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.
Today, Behmor Inspired is expanding to even more countries with a goal of reaching 100,000 people worldwide, one roaster at a time. Behmor is determined to bring the cup back to the farmer. That means with every Behmor product you purchase, you’re supporting small coffee bean growers, improving their livelihoods and their communities.
The Behmor brewing system was developed to deliver authentic, full flavored coffee at home. Enjoy coffee at home just like a hand poured coffee from a professional barista.

Better Coffee Brewing
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
In 1997, Field Application Engineer Joe Behm hadn’t taken a vacation for over 10 years. At a breaking point, he escaped the grind with his wife to Costa Rica. In Costa Rica, he happened upon a small coffee coop in Monte Verde where he drank a “stunning” cup of coffee that changed him forever. Upon returning home, he was frustrated not to be able to replicate the perfect brew. Using his engineering and technology acumen he set about to create the Behmor temperature control brewing system and ultimately, the Behmor Connected Brewer.
What makes your product special?
The Behmor Connected Coffee Maker combines the elemental experience of coffee with the technology to produce a perfect brew every time. Behmor pioneered and perfected techniques such as temperature calibration to brew within one degree of accuracy anywhere. Behmor has taken the time to re-engineer home coffee brewing by improving current deficiencies such as incorrect water temperature and poorly saturated beans resulting in an ideal cup of coffee that is easy to brew.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
The best part of the startup experience has been the journey that has led Behmor to connect with coffee drinkers and producers.
