[Homeroast] Brazil Carmo de Minas Peaberry

Every now and then I get a batch of beans with very few snaps of first
crack. I roast with a heat gun, with beans in a colander nested inside a
stainless steel bowl. A few years ago I bought a digital thermometer from
Tom (
and threaded the thermocouple wire through some wires of the colander,
I have an idea of bean temp, which can be handy in trying to decide whether
the snap or two I heard was just an outlier or two, or whether that is
going to be it for first crack.
