I was regularly roasting decaf for family and found Mike's advice to be
true. One way to achieve a gentler roast profile for me was to roast a full
pound in the Behmor when I was normally roasting 10 - 13 oz of regular
greens. The decaf that I tried from these batches tasted pretty good, but
I'm not a regular decaf drinker.
