Founder, Behmor Inc
Throughout his life, Joe Behm has led with three passions: technology, coffee, and community. He first developed a strong background in technology while working in the industry for over two decades. He then founded Behmor, where he combines his technology background with his passion for coffee. Through this combination, his products always adopt state-of-the-art technologies: the Behmor 1600 Coffee Roaster employs a patented smoke suppression technology, and the Behmor Connected Brewer is the first connected brewer to earn SCAA Gold Cup Approval. Advancements like these have won Behmor several awards and recognition worldwide. Joe’s passion for coffee and community led him to start Behmor Inspired, where he travels around the world to meet coffee farmers, and provides roasters and brewers so that farmers can taste the fruits of their labor—often for the first time. Learning how their coffee tastes better with improved soil and growing conditions ultimately means farmers can earn a better living with their product.
