1500 Watts. When the rotisserie is on only the top elements heat, and the convection fan shuts off.

Humm, that's pretty close to the Behmor's 1600 Watts. It probably just needs to be modified for coffee roasting. Of, if that's not an option,
think about buying a coffee roaster.

The 1500 watt rating is likely the nameplate spec and not what it's drawing if only the top elements are on with the rotisserie turning and other elements if any, are off.  If not all elements are on when you need the heat to roast, then your roast will suffer.  For now, you'll probably need some engineering expertise to make the machine work as you need.  If the rotisserie operation could be reconnected to run when all elements are on, then you'd be able to have an efficient roaster.
