Behmor 1600 Plus Drum Roaster Overview

You can directly control the heat and speed of the drum, allowing for endless experimentation under precise conditions, letting you dial in every roast until you have something spectacular.

It’s an expensive bit of equipment, though, and has a safety feature that’s a real double-edged sword. Around three-quarters of the way through roasting, you have to manually confirm that you’re still there or it will stop the roast. Some love the safety, others hate not being able to leave the machine to complete the cycle on its own.

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
