That said, there is a lot of buzz about the Behmor 1600 Gourmet Coffee Roaster. For me, a large part of that is that it is also the Behmor 1600 Gourmet Coffee AND COCOA Roaster. It is the first and currently only commercial roaster on the market that does a good job at roasting cocoa with no (major) modifications. I want to clarify that point very quickly before anyone thinks "oh no, I have to hack something else". NO. Not what I mean. All I mean is that the Behmor 1600 is designed for one pound of coffee. We know just how far 1 lb of cocoa goes (not very). The only thing you have to do to make to Behmor behave for Cocoa Roasting is roast more cocoa. If you load instead of 1 lb, 2 – 2 1/2 lbs, it behaves perfectly for cocoa (since cocoa roasts so much cooler compared to coffee).
The Behmor 1600 is a 4 oz – 1 lb, multi program drum style coffee roaster. It is also a great cocoa roaster. Since cocoa roasts so much cooler than coffee (250 – 300 F vs 400-450 F) you can roast quite a bit more cocoa than coffee.
There is no issue roasting coffee and cocoa in the same roaster. There is no cross contamination of flavor either way.

For the 220-240 V part of the world, we are now offering the 220/240 V models of the Behmor.
Currently you can get a total of 4 lbs of beans or free shipping. The beans are all one variety of our choice be we are happy to take requests.
In the event you just want the roaster, just choose that option.
