[Homeroast] Is it just me?

I fail to see the relevance of this Industry reference. The notion of color
coding a roast has very little or no bearing in my consideration of roasting

The Industry does in fact have a very precise system with a color to number
reference system for coffee roasts. I know it's been mentioned on List many
times. Implemented using either an Agtron spectrophotometer costing I don't
know how many thousands of dollars or the SCAA/Agtron Roast Color
Classification System set of 8 colored disks, petri dishes and instruction
manual costing $295/$195 SCAA non-member/member respectively.
