Behmor has updated the 1600 Plus roaster with an awesome new look along with a couple functional upgrades.

Introducing the improved Behmor 1600 AB Plus! (or just Behmor AB to some) Similar to its predecessor, it runs the same roasting programs and has the same controls as the previous model. The main appearance difference is the black on black color versus black on stainless. Turns out coffee roasting can stain “stainless”… should look a little nicer in the years to come.  It has a new more serious door handle along with a double pained window, should insulate the roasts a little better. A new motor is being used giving the user more control over drum speed.

The Behmor Coffee Roaster is easily the best value for a roaster; it is one powerful and versatile machine but also one of the more challenging units to use. Definitely for the home roasting coffee connoisseur who will enjoy the larger batch sizes along with the ability to change up the roasting curves but doesn’t mind being a little more attentive to the roaster.

The Behmor 1600 AB Plus is the only 1 pound home coffee roaster – it’s great for the hobbyist, very flexible and versatile, but a little more challenging to use.

Another Behmor feature home coffee roasting enthusiasts like is its smoke suppression technology which can reduce the need to vent while roasting. See other Key Features below the basic specifications.

We think the Behmor Coffee Roaster is one of the best for home coffee roasting.

The Basics:

Capacity: 4-16 Ounce
Heat Settings: Automatic Roasting Curves (5 to choose) or manual override (5 to choose) based on % voltage to heating elements (100%, 80% etc..)
Fan Settings: None, its a drum roaster.
Roast Times: 12-24 minutes (excluding cool)
Venting: Needed – Well ventilated area or stove top vent that goes outdoors is great
Ease of use: Hard – A bit challenging to pick up, has a learning curve to hit target roast.
Batch Roasting: No

2 reviews for Behmor 1600 AB Plus w/ Free Ground Shipping & 6 lbs green coffee

  1. David

    I have had the Behmor roaster for more than 3 yrs now with over 500 + roasts. I upgraded the panel x 1 to the 1600 plus. That was a good upgrade in that now I can roast 1 #of any coffee bean to any desired end point city to French. Yes it does require attentiveness! My 1 # beans generally take up to 30 min to roast to city + to dark. I usually go to 2nd crack. You can adjust this roaster from 20%-100% power. I set my timer for 15 min cause at 6 min toward end of roast you do need to reset roaster to continue roasting otherwise it goes into cool mode. I’ve never had a bad roast with the upgraded panel. The Times I missed auto cool down I will wait a few minutes on cool mode then restart the roaster after it cools down enough to finish the roast. The beans are evenly roasted due to the roasting barrel rotating with min chaff in the final coffee. It Takes just a few min to clean. Thus I would highly recommend this roaster if your looking for a larger roast and more control of the roast at an affordable price.

    I would not be inclined to label its “Ease of Use” to be “hard”; no not at all. You can just use the P1 basic blast and hit the Cool button when it’s getting into 2nd crack phase (which is basically what I do, usually 1# at a time;-). Perhaps, with the plethora of roasting programs to choose from with the Behmor, the difficulty could just be making your favorite program choice for the variety of cherry you’re roasting…? Who knows, exploring the possibilities here could produce some amazing taste results, if you’re willing to make the effort? Anyway, mine is the original 1600 model, which I believe was ordered late 2009. Eventually the original roasting drum needed to be replaced, however the new one is much improved, so it should last quite some time. All things considered, 5 stars, both thumbs up! ;-).
