Great wisdoms MiKe! To add an approach, when new to a roaster, do 2 or
even 3 batches the same day, to the same level with the same beans and
different profile or batch size adjustments. Then you can comparison
cup vs trying to compare one weeks batch to another batch a week or so
later. You may end up with more coffee than you can drink but friends
will usually take the extras!
