Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

New Roaster
jqaman
I've had my original Behmor for a long time. I still use the original basket and original chaff catcher. It's about time to retire it however, but it still roasts fine. I roast a pound or 2 every week for years, many years.

I was wondering if the community knew of any solid reliable electric roasters under $3000 that roasts over a pound and uses artisan. Artisan will be my new adventure. Service is important, but I would prefer one so reliable that it never needs service. My behmor has never failed in all the time I have had it. i take it apart and clean it once every few years, clean the chamber out almost every time, do an empty roast at least every 5 roasts and am not in the coffee business - I do it for my (and wife) own pleasure. I see the Jake Kilo is coming out at the end of this year, but i want to weigh my options and get the best. Thanks for your input...jq

My hunch is that with your requirements (electric, >1 lb, Artisan compatibility), your options are going to be pretty limited. Based on those three things, the Bullet R1 would check all three of those boxes. I don't have the Bullet, but people who have it generally have very good things to say about it. Now, finding one for sale could be another issue entirely. :)

I would take the Artisan adventure with a great stone of salt, at the end is not that exciting as you could believe...
Definitely today I would not use this criteria as a roaster buying decision.
Maybe you should clarify what is so important for you about using Artisan, then I will add more input.
Maybe we need to clarify a point for the start... today any machine can be made Artisan compatible, the fact that Artisan already "knows" it, and appear listed in the machines menu, worth a lot less than the manufacturers charge you for this (non)feature.

Second criteria I feel the need to demolish is the electric power.
Is time to read a bit... and "Learn to Stop Worrying and Love the "...Gas Grin
If you do this, then you could be interested about the Cormorant roaster from UK, 600 grams, 2000 GBP.
