"I've turned pro." So the quote- "To know I must first not know. And in
knowing know I know not" - applies not?

I'm just a learner and will always be one. When I first started roasting I
realized heat is a form of energy that will only flow from an area of high
intensity to an area of low intensity: Hot to Cold. During roasting, with
heat flowing into the bean, thermodynamics demands that the bean interior be
colder than the surface which needs to be colder than the environment in the
roaster as well. Otherwise no heat flow or temperature change where you want

Can't argue with a good roast.
