I am interested to hear your tasting notes as these coffees rest. Was
the Behmor roast done on the same day?
I just roasted the first of my A-list coffees in the Quest today and
am anxious to see what it tastes like.
Your approach of comparing roasts between the Quest and your previous
roaster is interesting. I will set up an 'experiment' next weekend
roasting the same coffee in my modified iRoast1 and the Quest to see
what differences I can detect.
