My roast temps seem to pretty much align with Tom's roast pictorial
examples, 1c commencing around 400f, sometimes a bit before sometimes a bit
after, 2nd on the rare occasions get there around 452f. My roast drops
depend on what roasting currently range from 416f to darkest 453f with most

Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment

My roasts are not too light.  Perhaps my thermcouple is not reading
properly.  But first crack clearly (audibly) happens at 192 on my digital
thermocouple.  It's a clear, distinct, and consistent first crack.  If you
get first crack at 401f, what temperature is it when you cool typically.
