Get started with the coolest roaster on the market - the Behmor® 2000AB Plus! We've been roasting with the Behmor® since the original 1600 model, and love the upgrades and improvements they've made over the years. Several employees use this roaster at home as well. We love the large capacity and the fact that it is relatively quiet and not so smoky. Plus the design of it looks like something that actually belongs on the countertop! 

The Behmor 2000AB Plus is an easy to use unit and our top choice for balancing roast quality with affordability. Based on a rotating drum, similar to commercial roasters, you can roast up to one pound at a time. As a drum style roaster it is much quieter than air bed roasters. The smoke suppression technology is also a key feature for indoor use. It comes with preprogrammed roast profiles but you can also use manual mode to control temps and drum speed.

SR 540 fan stopped working. Couldn't be bothered to send it in for repair. I also wanted to get more automation and larger roasts.

Replacement of an old one. Older model worked great for 5 years, but parts would cost as much as a new one.

my original Behmor 1600 stopped working after 4 years. Time to upgrade to new model rather than pay for costly repairs.

It provides a great opportunity for a neophyte to being learning the craft of roasting!
It is phenomenal! I read the manual throughly and started roasting. I am creating and sharing great coffee!

Great roaster
Works great with the pre sets to get a very good roast. Allows for plenty of manual adjustment for experimentation, if you’re into that (I am). Large capacity. Consistent results. Works great indoors. Lots of support and forums online for this machine.

A lot to like, but that safety shut-off feature? No thanks.
As the title suggests, this roaster has a lot going for it. It's very well built, and has a solid reliable feel to it. The manual is pretty helpful and the controls, once you learn them, are pretty good. I also love the fact that you can roast up to 16 oz. at a time.

What I don't love. First, the auto-shutoff feature sounds great on paper. "It's a safety feature". Yeah, until you miss the timer and screw up an whole batch. This requires you to helicopter the dang thing the whole time. This 'feature' cost it an entire star.

I also don't yet agree with the roast time suggestions and settings. I had to roast a batch THREE times to get the color I wanted and felt like I was guessing the whole time (and no, I don't like them burnt, but right around 1st crack). I even keep a detailed roast log and the last few entries have some four letter words in them. This is part of just figuring it out I suppose, but if you follow the instructions to the letter, the beans are not even close to being roasted.

The internal light is a good idea, but it shines off the roasting drum so much you can't really see the bean color, so it's not helpful in monitoring the roast.

I'm only on the first few batches so my opinion may change over time, but I doubt I'll ever like the auto-shutoff off feature.
