Subject: Behmor 1600?
Has anyone heard anything recently about the Behmor 1600?
The lastest stuff I could find seems to be written shortly after the
SCAA convention.
Will it be the latest mass marketed must have kitchen appliance, thus
shaking up the home roasting world as we know it?

Joe's distributor, Ronco, has been in bankruptcy for several weeks.
There is bad blood between the former and current management, which
has been widely reported in the financial press. It even includes
titillating side-stories, like the CFO being sued by a porn star for
ruining her production company when he worked for her.

Joe says none of this will affect his rollout, and is acting
accordingly, sending out several test models to reviewers. I hope he
is right. He has worked very hard to design this machine, and it looks
like a major step forward in home roasting.

That's ashamed that he got hooked up with Ronco, who always seemed to be a
sleezy, low rent company with sub-par products. Yes, it looks like a great
product. Maybe Ronco will throw in one of those collapsible fishing rods
with each roaster. :o)

Au contraire. Ronco products have long been known for reliability and
good value, even if their TV pitches are tacky.

Well, you could have fooled me! I never got past the 'tacky' tv ads, so it
was only my judgement that told me that the junk I saw them pitching on tv
was just that. I never wanted to fall for the sales pitches just like I
refuse to buy 'Head On' because their ads are just plain insulting. It
could be the greatest thing in the world but I won't buy it for that reason.
I'm a stubborn old fart, if you haven't noticed. :o)

Initial reports sound pretty good. There are threads about it on both
Coffeegeek and Home-Barista that you should check out, in which
several users of pre-production samples report. Joe Behm says that
he's entered a quiet period from now until the units are actually
shipped, probably sometime in September.

Best,
David

That looks good. I wonder what the cost will be. One thing to watch, if
you use it in the kitchen, is to make sure you have it on a separate
circuit. That baby draws 15 amps!
