Hi I use a popcorn machine. I put in 1/4 pound at a time. The roasting
is fast, but even. I turn the machine off a couple of times during the
roasting to prolong the roast to 8-9 minutes. So, it would appear that
somewhere between my 1/4 pound and your 2/3 pound there are too many beans
to roast evenly. Sounds like an experiment in the making. Good Luck.
