It is not a requirement of this list that each person parrot the politically
correct palaver as stated by anyone else in the whole world. What's the
advantage in that?

The implication of:
"What do you mean some validity?"
miKe just tried to [convince] you that in the commercial coffee world...
Implies the art of roasting goes so far and no further; personal advancement
ceases to exist.

*WHAT* in Blazes does this list have to do with the commercial coffee world?
NOTHING, and miKe, of all people is the antithesis of Big Coffee.

What is it about miKe that makes you think that his hobby or enterprise is
based on the archaic and bearded Agtron tile inadequacies, or any other
facet of the commercial coffee world? Isn't that what primarily drove us all
to roasting and brewing for ourselves?

The Commercial Coffee World- home of Foulgers, and the hazmat blends of *$.

Since FC roasted coffee is not a primary color perceived by the human eye,
it can't be directly quantified. The credulity required to standardize on a
quality rendered differently by the rods and cones in every human retina is
on the same page as "Human hearing is from 20hz - 20Khz "

The Cosar and Macbeth densitometers can resolve Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and
Black colors for critical graphics work, and can be found online for far
less than their original prices. In the 3-D mode, they could read coffee
beans, and 8000K super high intensity LED's could replace the incandescent
light sources.

In the roaster control loop, a cheap densitometer or colorimeter would allow
a roast degree to be set to a specific number.
