Roaster is fine. I roast 1lb batches of Ethiopian coffee all the time
and do not get real excited when I pull that stunt. I mark the time
remaining at the first crack of 1st crack and then initiate cool at 2:20
to 3:00 later. The 3:00 is pushing it a bit far into FC++. Many pounds
and very few light shows. Never had to pitch the coffee though.
