Behmor giving up

Postby sicinius » Sun Nov 26, 2017 12:27 pm

Been very happy with this bit of kit. I tend to roast two lots of 14oz when it comes out of its cupboard and see if we can make them last 10 days. I don't think I could get used to roasting coffee more frequently.

But the motor is starting to complain and the seals around the door are giving up after 10 years of mistreatment.

Now retired so the days of unlimited coffee equipment budgets are behind me. There are a lot of new roasters from the far east in the results of Google searches. Are any of them any good? I'll have to replace it with something. I'm not going back.

Am interested in the same question. You are seriously not having a lot of luck with the boiler and now this.
