Video: A Cooler Way to Cool Your Behmor Roast
June 18th, 2018

The Behmor 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.
