And true confession: I love cleaning up chaff. Does that make me weird?)

Yes! LOL
Actually, I'm sure many of us dump our chaff into the garden, same as I do with spent coffee grounds.

Maybe I have an ulterior motive to enjoy the cleaning up... As the chaff on the floor moves around while I sweep it up, the cats try desperately to chase it. It's completely ungrabbable and elusive, of course, and thus hysterical to watch their frantic chase. So if I pulled the chaff gingerly from the roaster or easily vacuumed it from the floor, what would be the fun in that?

Is there an ETA for the boards or Plus versions to be coming to Canada? If I had a button on the computer keyboard called "1600" I would be keeping my finger on it getting ready to push :). With the currency exchange its a question of price point and availability of the original here  and then upgrading the board vs just waiting for a Plus ...

Shawn, we owners are excited as well.
As solid a roaster as it is presently, it now appears we'll have more control and feedback, always a great thing.

BTW, though you've been a member a while, and as this is your first posting, welcome to the Forums!

Posted May 5, 2014 link

Thanks for the welcome!

I've been roasting on a Behmor for nearly two and a half years and lately I have been wishing for more control.  This could be just what I need.

This is great news.  My interest in getting a tabletop setup is renewed.  

As a hand-roaster, I sort of revel in the fact that everything about it is manual, including controlling the roast profile.   But there's one thing I can't do that a machine will do--scale up.   I roast in 4 oz batches, and it keeps my roasting sessions very short and convenient.  But now that I'm getting lots of requests from family, friends and co-workers to roast them coffee, I am greatly considering this new and improved Behmor 1600 Plus.

How many of you are ex-handroasters that switched to the Behmor and did you find it was equally satisfying or did you continue to hand roast?   I'm not sure this would replace my hand-roasting (I enjoy it quite much), but will definitely come in handy.  My biggest concern that left me not getting a roaster is spending money on a machine that does not let me replicate the same level of control I had roasting by hand. I had even considered a much larger setup but it's a much more serious commitment than I was willing to make.

By "Hand" roaster, do you mean an air popper?
If yours aren't modified, then Behmor is WAY more profitable, even the original.

Hey, if your having to roast gratis for friends, relatives and such (we all do...LOl) let them buy you the roaster!! LOL

haha that's a great idea!  i'm going to create a scotty-fund for my friends to contribute to.. I'm honestly sure they won't mind if they're gonna get to drink my magical brews :P

And sorry, yeah "hand-roasting" was meant to encompass all forms non-machine roasting. .   My particular hand roasting method I developed quite similar to jiffy-pop, which involves exactly what you think--manually shaking a bunch of beans over the stove in a foil-sealed pan (or in my case, pot).    It's has been a highly controllable, consistent technique that has yielded about as even a roast any I've purchased from artisan roasters.  I absolutely love doing it and am wowed every time I peel open the seal :).    Best of, it allows me to roast indoors without smoking up the place.

Scotty...my bad. You mean Literally roasting by hand, not with an air popper (pop corn popper.)
