Yet Another Behmor
I just broke down and ordered a Behmor. I've been roasting with an
unmodified popper. I've been planning to build a controller similar to
MiKe's frankenformer, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I was
deciding if I should go out in the windy cold to roast tonight, or
save the little I have left for the morning. Decided "the heck with
it" I'm gonna order one of these sooner or later, it might as well be
now. Then I'll be able to roast in the kitchen. Yea!
I added some coffee to the order like I really needed that;-) let's see...
Australia Mountain Estate
Hawaii Kona - Greenwell Extra Fancy, that just arrived
Bali Kintamani Arabica
and something else I don't remember;-)
That and the sampler that comes with the roaster, will put me around
70 lbs. As the only coffee drinker, that will last me awhile.
I'm REALLY looking forward to this roaster!
Some days...
It's just not worth chewing through the leather straps

Congratulations, Dave and I hope you really enjoy that roaster.  Good
coffee choices too!
Keep us posted on your results ...

I'm hoping for one for Christmas. It was at the top of my list, and 
everyone has been telling my mother that I really NEED one. Maybe that 
will help...we'll have to see. :)

I didn't get the Behmor....  (I hope that you guys do...)
I went to the Sale and Clearance Items page, and bought that old Nuovo
Simonelli Oscar espresso machine...  It's been used for a few cups, and now
it is on its way to Iowa...  I am sure it will find a good home here -
frankly, I can't wait!
So I roasted 2lb in a popper tonight. It took about 7 loads, each one
precisely at 160gm, and each one taken to the first outlier of 2nd crack...
Brazil at C+ ...
If the stars align, then next week will be a new, incredible espresso
experience at my place...  or at least the painful start...
Congrats you Behmor owners!

Hiya Dave,
This is a newby here, wishin ya well. I bought a Behmor and have been quite 
pleased with it; If you are half as happy with the predictable performance 
as I have been, you'll be a happy camper.
Best Regards, Ken.

I dropped a couple hints, but didn't get a nibble as to what roaster,
or what it would cost, so I bought it for myself:-)

I've really wanted to be able to do 1/2 lb at a time... 100g in my
popper just needs to be done too often.

Well, I've done more than hint. I've almost gotten to the point of 
begging like a little kid. ;)

Well, I sent my hubby a couple of suggestions, links to products I want, and
he said, don't you want that new coffee roaster?  I said, oh no, not for
Christmas, I'm saving up for that myself and will get it next year (mm-hmm).
Then, I told him that I have a big old wish list all filled out on
Amazon.com, it's basically the same one I've had there for 3 or 4 years and
I still want all that stuff.  He said, what about your wishlist at Sweet
Now, my heart is pumping, my eyes are wide, I'm daydreaming about my new
Behmor, I'm hoping Santa does come through.

"that will last me awhile".  Yeah, but what about all the new and wonderful
beans he gets in in the mean time.;>)

"Still the one"

11) From: Dave
That's been a problem;-) I keep saying I need to give more coffee
away, so I can try more beans. With the Behmor and being able to roast
more at a time. I'll be more willing to give more away.

You may want to drop a hint about the shipping suggestions on the SM site so
you unwrap it on the big day, and not a week later =)

Good suggestion Floyd, but I have to be tactful about it.  Let's see....
darling,  I better put in my order for your brother's aeropress and our
special greens by the 17th so they arrive in time, and did you know that our
buddies at SM have a cool UPS time in transit map and a calendar to remind
you what day of the week you need to order by to receive your order on
time?  OK, that's tacky, I'll have to think of something though!
How about ... loud screaming in the middle of dinner - OH NO>>>  I just
remembered, I need to go order your brother's aeropress from SM, I need to
order before the 17th to get it here on time, be right back....
I believe...

I need another roaster like I need a third armpit. However, to entice my
daughter to buy a Behmor. I offered her the deal of her ordering one. Using
it with the 8 lbs of free coffee and then if she didn't like it she could
send it to me and I would refund her money. I was actually hopping she would
not like it. Looks like I have to play poker this week and try to convince
my wife that we still need another roaster. My reasoning will have to be if
we ever move back to the mainland I can roast indoors with this one in the
