Dear Paul,
Thank you for your interest in the Behmor 1600.
Currently the anticiapted arrival of the roasters is mid-late August. =
This is in part due to a decision I've made to allow extra time to =

When I was in Asia two weeks ago I approved all the changes and final =
tooling at the same time I showed a new motor and when I heard it (or =
better stated didn't hear it) I immediately asked for expedited testing. =
While the original motor was sufficiently quiet the new one I believe is =
worth waiting for.
My apologies if this in any way impacts your decision on the Behmor.
As to sales the roaster will only be available through resellers. Behmor =

Thank you again and best regards
