Beans getting stuck in drum

Hey everyone! I just recently got a Behmor 1600plus. So far, I love it. My only complaint/concern is that my beans have been getting stuck in the little sliver where the drum opens, or in a crevice in the drum. Has anyone else had this issue? ...

Tip O' the Cup — Chuck Nigash

... for 13 years now, since I first stumbled upon the site looking for Jamaica Mtn Blue. Turns out, Tom really wasn't a fan. Who knew? I own a Behmor roaster and have been roasting my own weekly for 6 years. I am a former journalist from the LA Times and a top art director before creating my ...

Re: Behmor roasting temps

It looks reasonable - the wall temp rises until it hits the point where it cycles the heater off (it's a fairly crude thermostat sort of action), and then you get more or less constant temps. 5 or 6 minutes to get to the thermostat trip point sounds about right (it's been ages since I watched for th...

Behmor roasting temps

I got a used Behmor, and put a new circuit board and 1600+ front panel in it. I am having a hard time getting 300g roasts to actually make it to first crack. I burnt up a 75g roast. Is it getting hot enough in there, or is there ...

Re: Roasting Different Types of Green Beans Together

... has a lot to do with the roaster you are using. If you are doing really fast air-popper roasts, green blending might not work out, but hot-top or behmor roasts might show better.

Re: Evaluating Roasts vs. Cupping

... roast? If you can, would you sketch out how you'd try to emulate that with some homeroast gear? Having some idea what that would be like on a Behmor might help me understand better why my own roasting & tasting sometimes align well with the cupping-based (?) descriptions, but more often ...

Re: Roasting Central Americans in 1600+

... before the timer reaches 0. That makes it easy to know when the alarm will commence, but does mean that the time that will be displayed on the Behmor's mostly-useless IMO countdown timer when the RuinMyRoast™ alarm activates change if you use the + or - buttons. An external timer/alarm would ...

Roasting Central Americans in 1600+

I have been using a Behmor for more than 5 years. I roast Central Amer beans almost exclusively. I roast until the end of first crack and end up with City+ (based on Tom's video... center chaff is still light, bean has opened some, ...

Re: Using P1 - P4 to lower 1600+ power after first crack

... the time needed after first crack is going to be different at P2 than at full power. Sorry for the fuzzy writing. A roast log was included in my Behmor starter kit, and I'm now embarrassed to admit that I should have used it all the long. I _am_ having fun, and wish I'd discovered home roasting ...

Re: Using P1 - P4 to lower 1600+ power after first crack

... much better results than expected ... but that may be because I prefer lighter roasts, and have finally stumbled onto a way of getting them. The Behmor's "Rosetta Stone" instructions call for roasting at the highest heat profile, then dialing in 2:10 remaining time for a 1/2 pound roast ...
