Topic: behmor - sorry Jim (13 msgs / 282 lines)
1) From: Douglas Erickson
Hey coffee lovers,
I really, really hope I was not the source of all the angst on this thread =
about the behmor.
I do not doubt Jim did his homework.  As with most engineering exercises, t=
here is a balance of needs;  some read compromise as settling, I view it as=
 trying satisfy as many constraints as possible.
Either way, I know I will have a Behmor on my counter at some point.  Wheth=
er it has the large screen or the small screen was not really my focus.
Anyhow I hope this conversation can take a different tone,
Doug

I doubt it. People have questions. Especially us who are not that 
familiar with the various variables involved in a product like this.

I assume you mean Joe. Based on what everyone has said, yes. And he was 
kind enough to confirm my guesses as to why he went with the drum he's 
using. It simply allows the chaff to leave while keeping the beans in, 
and that will be something most people, especially first time coffee 
roasters, will appreciate. Most people aren't going to be willing to do 
what I do: sit over a stove stirring beans in a wok for 15 to 20 
minutes, and then cool them down on the floor of the kitchen and sweep 
up the chaff afterwards. I've done that because that's about the only 
affordable way I can roast a whole pound (I didn't pay one cent for my 
"roaster" as I already had it on hand, and it does have the advantage of 
being very, very, durable ;) ).
But I would like to be able to put the beans in, have a seat and watch 
them go round and round while I sip some coffee. Relax, and when its 
done, pull the cooled and chaff free beans out and put them in the bag. 
Tada! I'm done, aside from probably a little clean up. Dump the chaff, etc.
<Snip>
I'll probably get the small screen either when I order it or it becomes 
available. Sounds like it will be cheap enough. Why not, since you might 
order some beans and realize after you get them that they are too small 
for the bigger screen. Then you pop in the other one and roast away! 
Otherwise, I'm back to the wok. Which I'll probably do occasionally when 
needed, but hey, I have a feeling once I get this, the wok will mostly 
sit in the cabinet, despite how well it has served me, but it will 
always be there and I never have to fear running out of coffee for lack 
of a way to roast it. :)
At any rate, hopefully a Behmor will be there in my near future. I'm 
planning on it and looking forward to it.

For the record, it was Douglas who was apologizing, not I, for fear that 
he started the thread that led to some, shall we say, more nastier 
comments. But if he's guilty, I am too for continuing it by asking 
questions about the drum. But like Tom stated, we should be able to 
voice concerns, get questions answered, etc. That's in part what this 
list is here for, for information. And while some do have trouble 
stating things in a way that pushes other people's buttons, neither 
should we jump to conclusions.
And, for the record, no one responded to my questions with nasty 
comments, but either quietness or information, and Joe was kind enough 
to send me an email answering questions as well, which I appreciated. So 
now I'm informed, and still want one! :)
Sorry to see the discussion devolve the way it went, however. And that 
has nothing to do with the worth of it, just the way I feel. The list 
should be for info and community, not bashing, either direction.

Hey Rick, nice clarification...  I relish this list because of the people on
it.  Everyone is at a different place, and that's OK....
For me, this IS my local coffeehouse - wouldn't want to eb anywhere else
than with all of you...
