Product Description

Roast your way to the perfect cup of joe with the Behmor 1600 Plus Home Coffee Roaster. With Behmor's patent pending smoke suppression technology and the ability to roast up to 1 pound of fresh green coffee beans, this roaster makes it easy to say yes to skipping the pre-roasted coffee and declare a resounding "heck yeah!" to roasting your own perfect blend.

Features & Functionality of the Behmor 1600 Plus Home Coffee Roaster

  • Pre-programmed Settings: The Behmor 1600 Plus Home Coffee Roaster offers user-friendly pre-programmed settings for a simple start into the wonderful world of coffee bean roasting. Select the amount of green coffee beans you would like to roast (1/4 pound, 1/2 pound or 1 pound), the appropriate roast program/time (A, B, C, D) and type of bean profile (P1, P2, P3, P4, P5). Hit start and let the 1600 Plus roast its way into your heart.
  • Profiles: The pre-programmed profiles indicate how much heat will be applied to your beans. P1 is the hottest profile, which makes it the fastest roast time. P5 offers the least amount of heat and in turn, offers the slowest roast time.
  • Roast Programs: The convenient roast programs allow the user to easily change the length of the selected profile.
  • Adjustable Time Increments: This function allows you to adjust the pre-prgrammed amount of time to suit your taste and desired roast. Increase the roast time by increments of 15 seconds and decrease the time by increments of 10 seconds.
  • Cool Function: Begin the cool down cycle at any time during the roast by simply selecting the cool button.
  • Interior Light: Turn on the interior light and watch the roasting magic happen!
  • OFF: This button is pretty self explanatory. However, it is wise to note that this button should never be pressed during a roast cycle, unless it is a true emergency. Turning the roaster off mid roast cycle may cause excess smoke and could lead to fire.
  • Roasting Drum: The removable roasting drum makes adding and removing beans a breeze.
  • Chaff Tray: This tray catches all of the chaff that falls from the roasting drum and is also removable for an easy clean-up.
  • Unattended Safety Function: Roasting coffee beans is an interactive process and thus, the roaster should never be left unattended during a roasting cycle. When a roasting cycle is about 75% complete, the Behmor 1600 Plus likes to make sure you're still around by starting a 30 second count-down. If you do not press start within those 30 seconds, the roaster assumes you have walked away and automatically begins the cool down cycle while flashing err7 on the digital screen.

  • Adjust Motor Speed: Press "D" to adjust the motor speed.
  • Adjust Power to Heating Element: Adjust the power to the heating element by the following increments: P1 = 0%, P2 = 25%, P3 = 50%, P4 = 75%, P5 = 100%

Can the Behmor 1600 Plus produce a French Roast?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2014
Best Answer: Here's an excerpt from the Bermor 1600 Plus Operations Manual (page 1):

"The Behmor 1600 is not intended to roast coffee to levels known as
Vienna, French, or Italian."

Hope this helps.

Can this machine be used totally manual like the Gene Cafe or a Fresh Roast popper-type?
Nathan M on Jan 5, 2015
Best Answer: The machine has 5 pre-programmed roast profiles, and you can set the length of time that the machine will complete the profile selected with the 4 programs. Additionally, you can increase or decrease the length of time for each stage in intervals as it is brewing. If you prefer the hottest temperature, you would be selecting the P1 profile, but you will certainly want to experiment with small batches to find what works best for the roast degree you're looking for and the type of beans you're using!

If I order one of these, I'll need to get green beans too... any advice on where to order those?
davide on May 9, 2015
Best Answer: We carry Velton's Bonsai blend in unroasted. Other than that, I would try checking with your local coffee roasters.
