Cool your coffee faster by removing the drum: How to make an external cooling box for the Behmor Coffee Roaster
The A popular electric drum roaster designed for home use, with variable batch sizes (from 1/4 pound to 1 pound) and a smoke-reduction system. It has been modified and upgraded in refining the base model over the years. More 1600 has a cooling cycle that gets your roasted coffee down to room temp but it takes a while which means your coffee will continue to roast for a bit after you press the “cool” button.
There is a better way…make your own cooling tray. Dan uses the simple combo of a colander, cardboard box and a shop vac to get his extremely hot roasted coffee down to an extremely mild room temperature in just a few minutes.
Please note that removing the drum from the Behmor before the cooling cycle is over can be dangerous so please make sure to have some good oven mitts or pot holders around if you are going to attempt this.
