A general purpose roast profile for 1/2 lb of coffee seems to be:
1. Turn Heat (amps) on full
2. Fan at about 4 1/2 or where blue mark is
3. Pre- heat to 200 C
4. At 200C reduce Amp setting to 8.5
5. Introduce beans 1/2 pound
6 Monitor roast by smell and vision to get 1st crack in the 8 to 9 minute
range after bean introduction. Use Amp dial only with small changes to
accomplish this goal
7. At first snaps of 1 st crack Turn fan on full Leave Amp dial alone
8. Dump when heavy smoke starts coming out back and smell becomes very
sweet. You are on verge of 2nd crack should be about 13 to 14 minutes
