I am looking at getting a Behmor and I am wondering if anyone has any opinions on the best place to order one from.  I am in Michigan so I would like a place where it is not going to take a real long time to get here.  I have ordered from Sweet Marias before but the shipping can be a long time.

Sweet Maria's can take a little time with shipping, but when I ordered mine from them, I also got an 8lb sample pack of beans. You can't really beat that. I recommend them.

Go with SM. I've looked all over NA for one before buying mine and SM is your best bet.

Roastmasters also sells the Behmor 1600 with 8 pounds of beans and free shipping via FedEx ground.

Not sure of the beans you get, never ordered from Roastmasters before.

I got my Behmor from Roastmasters and was very pleased with the price and service. I got the bean samples with it and as I recall, five of them were pretty good. I still order the Columbian from Roastmasters for my wife's drip coffee.

Decided to go with Roastmasters.  With the free shipping and 8 lbs. of coffee it seemed like the best deal.  Ordered it Sunday night and it should be here tomorrow.  Thanks.  Now I just need to learn to use it correctly.  Does anyone have a link to the Rosetta Stone link about this roaster?

It's in the manual, under 'Tips':

Key Tip – ‘Rosetta Stone’: To better anticipate a roast hitting 2nd crack and for additional roast control use the following time guides.
Adjust times as close to the following using the + or - buttons once you hear the first cracking sound of 1C. This allows you to more accurately control and understand where you are in a roast, especially in cases where you have a bean type that migrates from 1C to 2C seamlessly. This also helps to prevent you from over-roasting your beans.
  1. 1⁄4 lb - 1:30 minutes
  2. 1⁄2 lb - 2:10 minutes
  3. 1 lb – 3:10 minutes
    The times shown are approximately the time it takes from start of the very first snaps of 1st crack (1C) to the start of 2nd crack (2C) for regular coffee. Decaf and aged coffees, such as Malabar, roast faster and get darker more quickly
