Positive Product Points

This roaster looks nice and well built.  It has a nice capacity for those who want to roast up to a pound of coffee.   It does a good job of roasting the coffee, nice and even.  I loved it before it broke and sang its praises.  Loved to show it off to all my friends.

Negative Product Points

This roaster broke after only about 40-50 pounds of coffee through it.  Some electric panel broke.

Detailed Commentary

I bought this roaster when I was able to drink a good bit of coffee, but I soon got ill and can't now due to some health problems.  I only roasted a half pound batch every other month when I had friends over who drink coffee.  I have roasted about 40-50 pounds of coffee in this roaster, which worked very well.  This is not that much coffee for such a unit in my opinion.   However, when I was roasting a batch the unit just stopped and the beans were sizzling with smoke pouring out of the unit.  I was expecting this product to last longer than what I did.  I have a freshroast and iRoast that still work.  These did not have the quality of the Behmor, but they still work.  I know I probably roasted about 300 pounds with the iRoast as I did drink a ton of coffee.    

I cannot believe that the roaster broke with such little use.  I am going to try to fix it and see if it will come to life again.

Buying Experience

Excellent from Cate's green coffee.

Tech support from Behmor has been responsive.
