Do you have the original 1600, or the update 1600 Plus? Wondering if its worth updating to the Plus.

I have the Behmor Plus, but looking to upgrade a roaster that might give me more control when roasting. Switching to manual mode has helped a lot with getting to 1st and 2nd crack as I prefer a darker roast most of the time.

I was reading up on what the plus can do. I like the extra control it gives, but not sure its worth the extra $$$ for me to upgrade.

I have not yet. I actually had some I forgot I roasted back early in January that I am almost done with... Should be tasting the newer stuff by the weekend.

It sure smells good. I am trying to find the bag of what I roasted.

For the Behmor roasters, you guys roast indoors at all? I really need something I can roast indoors without making a crazy mod to vent it outside.

I'm pretty sure that the Portland guys roast in the garage. Would that work for you? Noise, dust, and odor are a bit much, according to them. Me, I let others do the roasting and trade money or cigars for the finished product.

If I had my garage, the Fresh Roast works good. Unfortunately, my garage is not accessible as my sister is living with me and using it for storage currently. if I had my garage back, it would sure solve a few hurdles I have right now.

I did when I had my Behmor. Roasted in the basement. Used a shop vac to clean up the chaff. Made the house smell like roasted coffee for a couple days. I live alone, so it didn’t bother me.

I don't mind the smell at all, just settling off an alarm is my main concern.

Mine never went off. But it’s located on the ceiling leading up the stairs.

Default Re: Coffee Roasting

When I roasted, I set up my Behmor under our hood vent. When cooked, I vacuumed the chaff. My family didn’t mind the aroma of roasted coffee. As for the alarm, that is a problem. We pulled the one in the kitchen. I generally don’t produce enough smoke to set off the alarms in the other parts of the house. That said, I have set off the alarm in the hallways outside the bedrooms. That’s fun while roasting coffee late!

This took a back seat while I was in seminary. I haven’t returned to it as I’ve been ordering beans from Coava in Portland. Every two weeks we receive 1 day delivery of beans roasted within 2-3 days of delivery. It would be cheaper to order from Sweet Maria’s and roast my own, but I have enough projects to complete. This is one less thing I need to do for now.

I’ll get back to it eventually!
