First Roast on my new Behmor 1600 Plus
Tony_C
With the snow falling, and not much else going on (plus being out of fresh roasted coffee), I decided to take my new Behmor 1600 Plus out for test roast. After reading the manual, tips sheets, and many posts of others experiences, it was a fantastic experience, and I am a happy roaster. The roaster is very easy to use, the smoke suppressor worked nicely, and with the use the use of my Dyson handheld, chaff clean up was a breeze. After the empty 1st run seasoning, I dove right in with a 1/2 lb of Yirgacheffe. 1st crack was very easy to hear, and the cool down cycle is a nice feature.

I selected P2 - B profile
1st C at 10:00
Cool at 12:00

Came out very nice, and very even.

On to the next!

Hey Tony,

I'm betting you're going to love your Behmor. I'm still getting some incredible roasts out of my older version. There's something about the use of radiant heat as a primary heat source that has the ability to create excellent tasting roasts.

Be sure to post followups and especially post settings that give you best results.

Tasted the first roast of Yirgacheffe I did at P2 - B, with 1st crack coming at 10:00 minutes, and cooled at 12:00 minutes, and I am impressed. It came out very bright, and has a nice fruity flavor. Very enjoyable, and follows the typical flavor profile.

Allen, you are 100% right, I will indeed be loving the Behmor!

So far, my coffee snob friends have been raving about my first two roasts. So far very bright, low acidity, and so tasty. Everyone is impatiently awaiting my next few roasts.

I have been staying with the Yirgacheffe, and stretching out the roasts on each batch to experience the full extent of the bean and its roasting potential.

My latest are:

1/2lb
P2
C Profile
!st Crack 11:30 finished
Cool 13:30

And the next one...

1/2lb
P3
C Profile
1st Crack 1300
Rosetta 2:10
Cool 1440

I will be tasting the first one in the AM and posting my observations. Man am I having fun with my Behmor!

Good morning pouring

My review for my last roast:
1/2lb on P3
C Profile
1st Crack @ 1300
Rosetta 2:10
Cool @ 1440

This one is a keeper. It is still bright, very low acidity, still has its citrusy notes aqnd aromas, but now has more of a roasted flavor. Very enjoyable, and something that will be a staple for me.

Yes, getting very comfortable with the Behmor. Did a couple more 1/2 lb roasts of Yirg tonight. Very cool how little changes make such a difference. Decided to try preheating tonight.

Preheated 1:30
P2 - B profile
1st C at 10:00
Cool at 12:00

and

Preheated 1:45
P3 - C Profile + :45
1st Crack 11:45
2nd Crack 13:45
Cool 13:45

That was the first one I've taken into 2nd crack.

Okay, I think I have just about extended the experimentation of the Yirgacheffe to it's "bitter" end. My last roast, which I finally brought it into second crack has given me some interesting results.

Preheated 1:45
P3 - C Profile + :45
1st Crack 11:45
2nd Crack 13:45
Cool 13:45

The fruity aroma and flavor are really intense, but the bitterness has finally risen. Upon grinding and brewing, it had all of the classic fruity/floral aromas, with just a hint of a deeper roasted aroma. Flavor-wise, the fruitiness is there, but the bitterness is very present. It immediately reminded me of the Peets Reserve Ethiopian I have had before. Roasty, fruity, but a little too bitter.

So, the results so far of the of automatic profiles are in favor of:

P2 - B profile
1st C at 10:00
Cool at 12:00

and

P2 -C Profile
!st Crack 11:30 finished
Cool 13:30

The early finish is producing a bright, fruity flavor, and is a winner for me.

Sorry to bring up an old post. The OP didn't have any problems with this roaster and some seem to have all sorts. Is this user error? Thanks

Most issues with the roaster are users not understanding how the roaster opperates.

Read the manual.

Follow directions.

Find a roast profile that works and stick with it. Don't "experiment" with every roast.

Do not get up and walk away.

Pay attention to your roast.

Roasting coffee and getting good results is all a matter of consistency

For the money it is hard to beat this coffee roaster.
