Just went to the below link and they have a Feb 2022 update and a link to a PDF for beta testers. Would anyone know if this is getting close to be produced. Any other information that can be shared? I see that testers would be required to sign a NDA but would love to get more info as I believe this will be my next roaster when my Behmor 2000AB dies.

I'm sure it will be a great roaster but there will still be quite a wait.

Assuming the beta units are shipped early May, then it's the middle of the year before feedback is in, reviewed and decisions made. Safety certs will take until September/October most likely (90 to 120 days) and during that time they need to finalise tooling.

On that basis I would estimate units for sale sometime in November or December.

That said, it's probably worth waiting for, even if delivery is Q1 2023.

Unless you have direct info from the man, it's going on 3 years late so I would not be holding my breath.
