Just a heads up folks.

Day two is now complete. There's been many entries to this article over the last few days. If you haven't visited the Day Two SCAA 2007 article in a day or two, make sure you read again - there are reports from Cindy Taylor and a variety of seminars she attended, coffees found at the show, cool new products like the Toroid steaming pitcher, Behmor Roaster, the Presso tamper, and a lot more.

Enjoy! I always appreciate the feedback too!

Mark

Hi Mark,

Sorry to have missed you and Beata. One small thing you may have missed at Joe Behm's booth is that he plans to have an alternate drum with a smaller mesh for roasting things like Yemens that have a small bean size. I too thought he'd done a very nice job.

Best,
   David

A drum capable of dealing with the mythical Maui Moka Kaanapali?

That's hot ;)

I received my Behmor 1600 last week(late November). I ordered it from Burman Coffee, and it was shipped free, including all the beans I had ordered.

The machine is very quiet, and does not smoke alot, unless I go to full city roast on it.

You can adjust the time on it so you are not stuck with what you started with.

The wire type drum will hold most larger beans I have tried, but had some drop through with the Ethiopian Harrar. Dropped beans sit near (~3 inches) from the elements so I recommend shaking the drum and getting the smaller beans out before roasting.

It roasts very evenly, and I can go as dark as I like. It does not roast much farther then what I have when I start the cool down cycle.

The internal light bulb works well and I can see exactly what is going on.

I have had several roasters and they are now in the roaster graveyard. This machine is fantastic and I recommend it to everyone looking for a new roaster.

The exterior is solid and does not look cheap. There is stainless steel on the face, and a steel baked enamel on the rest. After a few roasts I noticed there is nothing to clean up except blowing out a little chaff and cleaning the inside window.  I cannot find any residue build up so far. They suggest running it empty after every 5 roasts.

Great coffee and no complaints. The best roaster I have ever used.
