  1. I am using a rotisserie in an air fryer @ 450 degrees. It takes at least 23 minutes to reach 1st crack. Does it matter how long it takes to get to first crack. I saw just over 6 min on your machine. I am roastin an organic Ethiopia Gera nano Challa wet processed. I have had some success, but noticed the end result tastes good, but is missing a full flavor one would expect in a freshly roasted coffee.

  2. Thanks for the tips. First time I’ve seen anything about the moisture loss percentage making with lvl of roast. Thanks so much that’s going to help me dial things in that much better.

  4. I don't understand the point of weighing to measure moisture loss, because you never know the starting moisture content of the green beans.

  10. A very straightforward video, I have the Behmor and agree about its limitations. With the FreshRoast, how can you hear 1st crack over the roaster noise?

  12. Extremely helpful;; how I wish I'd had the simple explanation two years ago. I stopped roasting two years ago due to it being too stressful as I wanted dark roast but ended up with either too light or burnt beans, because the information I had was too complicated is my roaster. But NOW I understand the precise process which is simple so I'm going to dust off my roaster, pull out the "green" beans and have another go, because I'm tired of crappy tasting "stale" coffee.

  13. Another great lecturer in coffee roasting! Please include also the temperatures of each roast. And maybe your background plant could be a coffee tree. .

  24. Great tips. I cringed/laughed at the necessity of explaining how you come up with the percentage. Must be a ton of math challenged ppl out there…

  25. Basically what I was able
    To deduce from several hours of watching the Mill city roaster’s “Roaster Edication” playlist.
    This is what I was lookin g fir to start off with, but I’m glad I watched all that other stuff as well.
