Thought it would be fun to speculate on Joe Behm's new project.  Anyone have any ideas?  I am sure that Joe won't spill the beans (no pun intended) for quite some time.

My guess is that he is working on reinventing the espresso machine.  It would make sense since the basic concept of an espresso machine is in need of a refresh...the E61 was invented over 50 years ago and is still used on most higher end machines.  Seeing and experiencing what he did with his Brazen brewer, I can see applying similar electronic innovations to an espresso machine.  Programable preinfusion, on-the-fly pressure adjustment?

What do you think??

If I were Joe:

I would be working on a pint-size (well ...0.6 litre) BraZen.  From the chatter in the newsgroups there are loads of folks (like me) who would prefer a 2-mug batch size.  

Here's how I would approach it:

Do the research and have a modified brew basket (and other removable internals) and with them the BraZen would be optimized for 0.6 litre batches (or full-size as originally intended).

If he came to market with that in (say) 18 months, he could sell the change-parts to his existing customer base or as an extra kit for new sales.

Having done the "Deal with the Taiwan manufacturers" bit, and the "Manage the hi-tech startup" bit, I don't have to speculate. Joe Behm needs a good, long, decompress cycle, preferably in a place with beautiful scenery, delicious food, and friendly people. Renting a cottage on the South island of New Zealand for six months is what I would recommend. Although, if he preferred Thailand, I wouldn't argue.

I hope Joe is working on a new version of the 1600 roaster.  I love the roasts it does now, but...

The ONE thing I would like would be a (1st Crack) button that you press when 1C starts up.  The roaster would then, at YOUR timing, set the temperature such that 1C is stretched out.  

Then have another button (Finish it!) that puts the temperature up to finish the roast as you need.

That would get my $$$ right now.

Yeah, it's easy for me to say...  :)

I am doing just that. In Italy w/ my wife on our first vacation in quite a while trying to decompress. In Tuscany enjoying the food, the sights, the people and my wife is enjoying the wine as well.

Next Project..  ?

 
REMINDER: Never leave the roaster unattended when in use !!   And remember to use our Rosetta Stone tip PART V PARAGRAPH 3.. it works !!!

Wonderful to hear you are enjoying the fruits of your labor!  No hurries, no worries.  

Life is too short to be working all the time.
