The U.S. designed Behmor 1600 has been the best-of-class home green bean coffee roaster since its introduction in 2007, winning the Specialty Coffee Association of America "Best New Product 2007 & 2008.
The 220-240v models were once CE approved, until the good old Euro bureaucrats shifted their countertop-hot-appliance specification goal posts no less than 3 times in 18 months. Behmor lost a lot of money retooling their factory and ultimately their patience and so pulled out, preferring to wait for the Euro-dust to settle.
The Behmor is approved and widely available in the U. S, Canada, Australia and NZ – It’s an excellent machine - yes the shell gets as hot as you’d expect when roasting, its an Oven! Perhaps we should ban frying pans, as they too get hot!
My partner & I are from the Netherlands & England respectively. We both live in Dubai and run an ecommerce business, specialising in all things coffee for home baristas - like you and me.

For £259, we can fly roasters in to the UK, to your door, using Aramex traceable express service.
We’ll clearly invoice the value of the roaster without courier charges - should you get hit for VAT, you’ll be charged on £204.00
(we can always play with that figure but this will have an obvious effect, should your roaster get lost or damaged – your call).
So worse case scenario - you’ll have a Behmor in your kitchen for £300.
There’s no other roaster in this class that can roast batches of up to 1 pound (454 g). The savings made on buying green beans over ready roasted will soon reward your investment.
Two things I really enjoy in the kitchen are baking bread and roasting & brewing coffee for my family and I. Just like bread, there's nothing quite like good coffee that’s freshly roasted at home!
We carry spares for all our machines too and will support you if required. Our rates to UK are very competitive and you’ll have a 12 month guarantee. Obviously it wouldn’t do to return the machine here for repair, but the Behmor has a clever and simple modular design - faults are relatively simple to determine and correct, with just a Philips screwdriver required.
Having said all this, I’ve been throwing my Behmor from pillar to post and exhibition to demo, as well as using in my own kitchen for 18 months without any issue. We’ve yet to fix a single machine.

We’re a fully registered Limited Liability Company here in Dubai.
We had to jump through many hoops in order to offer secure online payments in the United Arab Emirates - you have total piece of mind (we’re trying to grow a business, not make a few quid). Further documentation can be provided if you still have doubts.
