John, you can hit the "C" button at any time after after starting the roast cycle. The clock jumps to 3:10. It does that both before the 75% and after, right down to 1 second to go. It always resets to 3:10. No manual mode is necessary. But I have also roasted with other profile settings and the "C" button seems to reset the timer just the same. I enjoy fiddling with the roast profiles, temperatures and timing. But, mostly, I go with the cracks, the appearance and the aroma of both the beans and the smoke that is produced.
As far as Roasting versus Baking, I'll leave that alone. When I first started using a Hot Air Popper for my first tries at roasting coffee, the beans went from green to first crack within 4 or 5 minutes and to second crack a couple minutes later. Each quarter cup of beans was done within 10 minutes.
As far as taste goes, it is so subjective as to be almost impossible to define. I do know what I don't like and that is 95 percent of commercially available coffees. So, I use my Behmor 1600 Plus in a way that roasts coffee the way I like it. I've learned what that is and how to achieve it, roast after roast. I hope others that own the Behmor will try this trick and see if it works for them.
