Coffee roasters are expensive. Like REAAAAALLLLYY expensive, especially after you’ve been a barista, selling your coffee at whatever Farmers Market you can find. If anyone knows the “Darrin’s Coffee” story, you know that I began roasting coffee in a Whirly-Pop Popcorn Popper. Actually, I’ve roasted A LOT of coffee in a popcorn popper. About 2300lbs worth. And then I read about the Behmor 1600 Plus Home Coffee Roaster.

In comes the Behmor 1600 Drum Home Coffee Roaster 

The Behmor 1600 Plus Home Coffee Roaster is user-friendly, features smoke suppression technological innovation and has a batch size of as high as a pound at once. It’s an affordable drum roaster that uses pre-programmed roast profiles but can possibly be used manually, presenting the user control over temperature along with drum speed.

Essentially, the Behmor 1600 Coffee Roster enables craft coffee roasting to be experienced at home by the coffee enthusiast. And unlike roasting  with precision controls and a state of the art smoke suppression.

The difference in the Behmor 1600 Drum Roaster of today and the past. 

The original version of the Behmor 1600 Roaster had a smoke suppression system with a roast batch up to a pound at a time. The roaster had pre-programmed roasting profiles. However, there was a limited functionality to control the overall roast. The limited functionality of the Behmor 1600 is what separates that roaster from the Behmor 1600 and has a batch size of up to a pound at a time. The Behmor 1600 Plus is a roaster with all of the features of the 1600, except the Behmor 1600 Plus has manual roasting functionality, That feature allows the home roaster to tailor a roast to fit their exact needs. Here are some features of the Behmor 1600 Plus Drum Home Coffee Roaster:

  • Roast up to 1 pound per batch, five customizable roast profile settings, and manual roasting override
  • Patent pending smoke suppression technology for safe indoor roasting
  • Thermostatically controlled quartz roasting elements and variable speed rotating roasting drum for an even performance
  • Efficient cooling cycle; easy chaff separation with removable chaff tray and drum for simple clean up
  • Lighted interior for viewing of the roast process; 1 year warranty
  • There are many more features that can be found in the manual
