As it is very difficult to observe the color progression of the ground 
coffee while roasting and cooling it is obvious that the exterior color 
is the only available guide to roast progression.  If you are not using 
the extra high dollar computer controlled commercial drum roaster then 
you will just have to keep an eye on outer bean color changes.  I 
thought this would be intuitively obvious...  All of the home roasters 
are eyeball controlled to some extent.
