Hopefully tasting the Masterpieces of Daterra sample set will bear out my decision for expediency: allow 200 C charge temp, a BBP to bring charge temp down would extend my roast sessions beyond the time I have. My drops are about 207C and the entire roaster is around 200 with charging, compared to a higher MET with roasting higher charge masses back-to-back.

I roasted the two Laurina lots. Those beans are wee. And of the 6 lots I had time for last night, most did not give much of a sound of 1C popping. I'm hitting 4-3-2 intervals pretty well, and 10C BT rise after 1C. (The set comes with cards and each has a QR code to suggest an Akiwa roast profile, but that's no help to me. I wonder what adjustment they make for the small Laurina beans).

Interesting. Small soft beans reminds me of some Maui beans I roasted many years ago. I think I got them from Green Coffee Buying Club. Anyhow, they were hard to roast as they gave no crack. Taste was ok. But, I was in no hurry to get them again.

The process of roasting and now tasting through these has been great fun and interesting, even with my poorly discerning palate. For the two groups of 5-6 I've cupped with two local homeroaster friends, 2 coffees stand out as more interesting of each set. But I am glad I have enough to try in multiple setting to see if that holds .
