The Behmor Plus home coffee roaster is a simple, easy to use unit with a smoke reduction feature that makes it a pleasure to use indoors.

The Behmor roaster has a strong feature set, but it's not without quirks. We have composed a thorough extended review of the machine, with data compiled from months of testing the pre-production model of the roaster. We encourage you to read our review, scan for relevant parts, or at the minimum read our summary comments. Perhaps it seems odd, but we are rather critical of our products since the goal is to match the right machine to the right person.
