Drum Roasting Starter Kit

Drum Roasting Starter Kit


Drum roasters produce a more even roast with balanced body and brightness. They also roast more coffee at once for those who drink a lot of coffee and need something with easy controls. This kit includes a Behmor 1600 Plus roaster, an 8 lb Green Coffee Sampler, a roast log, an Escali L600 scale and valve bags for storing roasted coffee.

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 larger batch size (compared to air roasters) makes perfect sense for those who want to roast their own coffee once a week, or those who roast coffee for the office, for family, or for gift-giving. It has pre-programmed roast times, heat curves, and an automatic cooling cycle. It also has manual control where you can adjust the temperature and drum speed.

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.
