Hi John --
I posted a detailed description of the procedure I use for everything I
roast a couple of days ago. I use a FreshRoast 500, so my experience is
not specific to HotTop. I have done about 800 roasts. Many Guatemala and
many Ethiopia YCA. Those two are my favorites. I roast fairly light --
Agtron 45 -- probably city+
I stop the roast in my FreshRoast when the temperature I am able to measure
(infrared gun pointed into the open roasting chamber) is about 435-440 F.
For almost all the Guatemala beans, that happens 7 to 8 minutes after the
first heat. For Ethiopia YCA, it happens much sooner -- around 6 minutes.
I don't do anything special for one or the other -- just monitor bean
color, sound, and temperature closely as the roast is progressing.
